If you work in the entertainment industry, there’s a good chance you’ve at least heard of the concept of crowd control, if not enacted it yourself. It’s incredibly important for managing large venues as well as shows that have a high turnout of audience members. To explain it briefly, putting up crowd control barriers helps make the night of the performance more safe and organized for everyone involved. Here is exactly how crowd control barriers can help to improve the experience for those large pools of audience members.

Show Your Customers Where to Go

Some venues are so large that audiences may need a bit of assistance in knowing where they should go. In other cases, you may be hosting multiple performances in one night and need a way to keep pathways to these different shows distinguishable and separate. This is where crowd control barriers come into play. Many venue managers find crowd control barriers especially useful for preventing the venue from becoming too clogged for people to navigate through, especially as showtime draws nearer.

Close Off Certain Areas

There may be specific areas of the venue you want no one to enter but your staff. Marking these areas off with crowd control barriers makes it easier for both your staff and potential visitors or customers to know where they should and shouldn’t be.

Make Lines Flow More Smoothly

Creating and managing single file lines can be much easier said than done, especially when you have large numbers of people to keep track of and assist. Again, crowd control barriers can make this situation much easier to deal with by marking off where specific lines begin and end and signalling to audience members or customers where they should stand and wait for service.

There are many other ways you can utilize crowd control barriers at your venue. To learn more, get in touch with Gallagher Staging by visiting their website or calling them at 714-690-1559.
