What can we do for you?
Gentian Events offer a full range of event services for events of all shapes and sizes.
Don't see what you need? Drop us a line!
We offer a full service to events of all sizes, planning for the safety of your crowds in 'normal' or emergency situations.
To do so we combine Maths, Physics, Psychology and Behaviours to predict and respond to what crowds will do throughout the event in multiple circumstances. We provide staff from our team to manage more difficult events or aspects of them.
We can support events on a technical level. We will write and prepare all of your operational and emergency documents including risk assesments, evacuation plans, EAPs and EMPs available before your event.
Our vendor and contractor contacts mean we have the ability to source barriers, infrastructure and security.
We provide thorough event support throughout your event planning process including being onsite during your load-in, event days and attend the follow-up debrief meetings so we can ensure the job is complete!
Detailed event reports and logs will be provided both pre and post event.
TRAINING, TESTING AND EXERCISING
We supply training to Emergency Services, Local Authorities, and the events industry. We cover crowd management and safety training, event safety management and how to write appropriate plans. We also deliver a realistic package of where the industry is in the current era on matters of terrorism and how to prevent or at least deal with the consequences.
We regularly test plans through table top exercises with all agencies and by undertaking reviews of safety plans.
Gentian Events offer a wide range of training courses which includes crowd safety, health and safety, and planning principles.
Gentian Events offer 2-3 day Crowd Safety Workshops or alternatively choose from our "Pick & Mix Workshop".
