Facility management in the framework of festivals
Holding festivals is a rather specific and complex kind of activity, which requires a huge amount of knowledge and skills from the organizers. Any defect, or a thing that is not in its place, can ruin the holiday.
Choosing a theme and venue for the festival, preparing participants, inviting artists, team creativity and preliminary advertising of the event are critical for success, as well as organizing logistics, design, arranging recreation areas, meals … But with a large crowd of people in one location, you first need to take care of their safety and creating a comfortable stay. And here the facilitation management company can become that lifesaver that will support the mood of the holiday.
Such outsourcing companies take on tasks that take a lot of time and effort, and are not core to the organizers. Why are industry facilitators so useful:
- Cleaning. Professional cleaners are needed throughout the entire organization and holding of the event. At the preparatory stage, this is cleaning after installation of structures and placement of participants. During the event, this is cleaning the territory from a huge amount of garbage, spilled water, dropped hot dogs, etc. and of course, after the festival, it is necessary to bring the location in the form in which it was.
- Security. Safety comes first. Professional security guards, polite, trained to quickly respond and resolve conflict situations, an essential element of any mass event. After all, any spark of negativity can lead to unpredictable and sad consequences.
- Technical support. The proper organization of the work of building systems or the installation of lighting, conducting electricians in street locations will help not only to hold a wonderful festival, but also optimize energy costs
It is not easy to independently calculate the number of staff needed for the festival. Determining how many chemicals are needed and what equipment is also not an easy task for non-core organizations. How to control the work of cleaners, security guards, technical personnel, monitor the correct distribution of resources? But all this is an extra expenditure of time, money, nerves.
Facility services of companies certainly cost money, and sometimes it seems like a lot. However, given all of the above, cooperation with experienced organizations such as SHEN, on the account of which more than one successful event, bring much more benefits to all interested parties.
