When clients come to us with this question, we ask for the key details about the type and size of the event. However, there are a lot of other factors that influence the number of event security guards we provide at any given event.

These include but are not limited to:

  • Number of entrances/exits
  • Bodies of water on site
  • Any use of flames or fire
  • Ages of attendees
  • Whether or not alcohol is provided or sold on site
  • Daytime or overnight event
  • Remote or urban event
  • …and more!

Depending on the nature of the event, though, it is probably a good idea to have about a 1:50 ratio of security guards to attendees.

Types of Security
There are a number of types of security that you can have at your event, including:

Personal protection is your best security option for celebrities, government officials, and other famous personalities who would need bodyguards to attend your company event.

This is the most common security option for the entrance and exit during an event. These guards are also positioned around barriers and stages inside the venue.

Crowd control
Specialist security guards are trained and tasked to control the crowd. They can direct the flow of traffic and handle any arising situation. This type of security is ideal for festivals, concerts, and other outdoor events.

Mobile patrol
This type of security guard moves across various locations via transport, such as a car or motorcycle. Excellent examples of this security type include guards patrolling across multiple venues or managing parking and traffic.
