As the events industry starts to come back to life the need for security is high. Quite often it is the role of a security guard that everyone first thinks of for a person working at an event or venue. The role of a steward is often overlooked but if you’ve been to a football match, concert, festival or any public event, you’ll have encountered stewards and the invaluable work they perform. However, what is the role of a steward at an event? What do they actually do? Ultimately they are there for your protection and to make your experience as safe but enjoyable as possible.
Whether you’re organising a non-league football match with 200 spectators or a major festival with 50,000 people in attendance, planning for event safety is absolutely key. A safe, secure event plays a critical role in making it a successful one, ensuring your customers return in future.
Newman Event Services was delighted to feature in the March 2021 edition of Access All Areas. With the events industry having been pretty much closed for over a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we wanted to make our customers aware that we’re raring to go as soon as they’re ready to begin hosting events.
Will there be enough event safety staff as soon as events re-open? We explore why the grand reopening of events may be impacted by a lack of available, licensed event staff following a year of industry closure due Covid-19.
