Event Crowd Management

What is crowd management and why is it important?

Crowd management is the planning and direction of large groups of people at big events. Good crowd management ensures there’s sufficient space for crowds to move around, wait in line or rest, and that the public’s experience and safety are supported by event staff as and when needed. The result is a free-flowing, comfortable space, staffed by a knowledgeable and responsive workforce.

OnePlan has intelligent tools and calculators for accurate event planning

OnePlan’s crowd management features include capacity calculators where you can chart or map out a precise area and it will calculate the capacity allowed. You’re even able to change density, from 1 person per square meter to 5.

"The time saving compared to the way I used to develop a site map is huge. OnePlan is so much more streamlined and saves me a considerable amount of time, especially when the organisation wants certain areas editing" ​

Model crowd flow to ensure social distancing on arrival

Our built-in social distancing calculator lets you define how attendees will arrive at your event. It uses predicted arrival profiles, if guests arrive via car on on foot, the amount of physical space to allow for lines and queues, as well as the number of entrances and regional authority recommended social distancing guidelines.

This provides robust data to support planning for safe entrance operations at any venue.
