Crowd Management

Managing crowds is crucial to a safe, functional and enjoyable event. OnePlan enables you to assess risk before and during event operations and gives you the tools to manage crowds effectively.

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.
