Our event planners have been hard at work this month, here are a few standout event plans that have caught our eye!
Coronation Events - Banbury Town Council
Party in the Park has been organised by Banbury Town Council in celebration of King Charles III’s Coronation! The event is set to see around 15,000 visitors come along to the free-to-enter community event, featuring ‘The Big Lunch’ and ‘The Big Help Out’.
They said “I love that there are thousands of different items to add onto an event site, and my favourite tool is definitely the crowd barrier one – getting the right number of barriers to different parts of the site has also made me very popular with our operational team too! Having such an accurate site plan has also improved our communications with our contractors and vendors, resulting in a really smooth pre-event setup. Being a one off celebration event, I found the unlock, drag and drop element a great way of being able to draft out a few different site layouts. I would definitely recommend using OnePlan – we now use it for all of our regular outdoor events including Food Festivals and Christmas Light Switch Ons’!”
We are delighted to hear OnePlan has been such a beneficial planning tool for Banbury Town Council. This impressive event plan is a great example of how OnePlan can enable you to visualise your entire event site accurately, even with the inclusion of a firework zone!
Fire in the Mountain
Fire in the Mountain is a small 2000-capacity folk and roots music festival held in West Wales, UK.
They said “OnePlan has really helped with our SAG meeting providing information for the authorities, and also for internal use, planning where to put all our content.”
We love the use of the area mapping tool that has been used to precisely map out the different areas across this event site! Our intelligent tools instantly calculate area size and capacity, leaving no manual calculations to the event planner!
QCX 2023 is a five-day event held at the heart of Regina, Saskatchewan in the REAL District, is an enjoyable experience for the entire family. Each summer they turn up the fun with rides, rollercoasters, games of chance, amazing food, marketplace, and entertainment for all ages.
They said “Utilizing OnePlan for QCX has aided in the improved development of layouts for spaces throughout the district. It enables us to accurately position objects to scale, determine optimal paths for guest movement during the event, and assign staff placements. Ensuring that everything fits properly minimizes last-minute changes in the days leading up to the event, reducing labor expenses.”
“Integration with WhatThreeWords enables us to effectively communicate specific locations to our operations team, which can be challenging on a 100-acre district. The team at One Plan has been supportive and open to adding and creating new objects tailored to our campus, enhancing our ability to track, manage, and develop accurate plans.”
“OnePlan has proven to be a valuable addition to our Major Events team, and we are excited about expanding its usage to other teams to enhance efficiency across the organization.”
With over 700 objects placed, this is a great example of how OnePlan can help plan events at a large scale to ensure every stakeholder is informed with one single source of truth!
New Forest Folk Festival
Already labelled as one of the friendliest festivals, New Forest Folk Festival is a family-run event with the help of family, friends, helpers, technicians and security who all make the festival a success! Hosted at their own farm situated in Plaitford, the beautiful village setting in the Test Valley district of Hampshire, this event has been running for eleven years!
They said “While we were attending the Showman’s Show last year, we were impressed with the ‘OnePlan’ stand and could see how their stylised maps and site plans could improve our current ones. We spoke, and after discussing our needs, we now have new and improved maps for our programme, which we are all delighted with. ‘OnePlan’ has proved to be friendly, efficient and professional, and we thank them for their input into our festival progress.”
The precise mapping of the areas on this event plan showcases how easy OnePlan makes it to lay out all the different areas of your event site. Our new Camping Capacity Calculator instantly calculates how many tents you can fit into your designated field, choose from high, medium or low density to ensure a safe and successful event for all your attendees!
