Business organizations should consider potential risks during special events, meetings and conventions. Accidents, criminal incidents or sudden emergencies can bring disaster to an expensively held event or meeting. The recognition desired by a company can turn into a damaged reputation in the advent of untimely incidents, so companies must include security and safety in their advanced planning activities. The host company should recognize its responsibility for any adverse situation that may result during the special event.


Security is a must for any special event. From the parking lot, to checking in your garments and personal items security is essential for the safety and connivance of your guests. Security assists in areas of safety concerns and liability as well as assisting or preventing situations from beginning or getting out of hand. Security delivers the assurance of a greater peace of mind for the special event host and planner knowing that things will be festive and enjoyable for guests with out the fear of being unsafe. One should always find out the security policies and number of security personnel dispatched at any event venue or facility especially pertaining to your particular event date and time.

Determining your security needs

Every event carries with it it's own security risks and guest safety concerns. Depending on the particular needs of your event the security should be at the same level of risks. How do you evaluate your security needs. Determining the type of event you are hosting, the size of the crowd, the type of personal items guest will be wearing and carrying, the area surrounding the event site or venue and the valuable items that will be used, displayed, or auctioned while at your event are the key determining factors. Determining these factors will determine

Locating competent security personnel

Locating competent security personnel is no farther than your own local law enforcement agency. Many of the local Police and Sheriff's departments are well rehearsed in the proper protocol and requirements of security and protection at special events. Many of these officers can be deployed in full uniform or in plain cloths depending on your need of visibility and security concerns. Other forms of security include private security agencies or personnel that are highly trained just for use in the hospitality and special event industry.

Areas of security risks and concerns

Parking and walking from one's vehicle to a venue is a major security concern. Open and poorly lighted parking lots are a major source of security concerns. The area of town surrounding the venue is a major consideration in understanding how to eliminate the security risks to you and your guests while at your event. Overlooking and ignoring these parking areas, parking lots, garages and decks have lead to muggings, purse snatchings and car jackings. Being aware of these areas and securing them make for a safe environment.

Internal areas such as foyers and entrances where personal items are placed or stored are of a security concern. Having a check in for personal items such as coats, furs, purses reduce the risk of security from theft.

Having events that includes auctions, gifts and awards are a security concern for items walking away. Security camera surveillance is one thing, but it is an after the fact type security. If that item disappears and is recovered days or weeks later the event is robbed of having that item to present or to be auctioned the day that it is needed. Having a security guard is the best preventative method that prevents that item from ever leaving the premise.

The larger the size, location and production status of an event the security concerns become a greater issue. An issue not to be neglected, overlooked or ignored. Asking venues and event site personnel as to what policies and procedures they practice and what personnel they have available for events takes care of the security concerns of most events. Events done in venues or event sites where no security is provided is a major concern for those hosting events. The general rule of thought on security is that a little is good but more is generally better.
