Top Event Security related questions

For starters, Taskers who take on your needs will need to formulate a plan to secure your event and all stakeholders involved from start to finish — from security detail and itinerary to contingency plans in specific scenarios. Extra considerations like high-profile personalities involved and events of high public relevance are also taken into account when preparing event security. For your particular needs, feel free to discuss them with your Tasker.

You can never be too secure when it comes to holding events. Determining how much is too much would ultimately depend on who’s involved and what’s at stake at the event. However, it wouldn’t hurt to be extra careful to ensure that the event goes without a hitch and for your peace of mind. You may discuss with your Tasker more in-depth details about your event’s security and if you have some extras in mind.

Event suppliers, including security service providers, require an advanced deposit to get the work started, which is usually non-refundable. In case of cancellations for reasons other than acts of God, the supplier will likely enforce the no-refund clause. However, it would be best to talk with your Tasker should you cancel a booking or move it to another date since it varies from case to case.

Most people, particularly attendees, see the duration of event security from when they set up until the event ends. However, security detail might be needed for a more extended period, including preparations. These particulars should be discussed with your Tasker, and they will make recommendations on the best course of action for your peace of mind.

Security personnel tend to keep information regarding event stakeholders confidential, especially for high-profile personalities. Rest assured that whatever information you and other event stakeholders provide will be used solely to keep you safe from harm during the event and not for anything else. You may discuss information privacy concerns with your Tasker should you still have doubts about providing information.

Suppose you have an event coordinator who oversees all preparations. In that case, this should be more in their hands already, apart from some particulars that stakeholders might tell you instead of the coordinator. However, if you’re handling event preparations on your own, you would need to provide an itinerary for all stakeholders, their contact information should they need to be contacted, and other information relevant to securing them throughout event-related activities.

Typically, insurance is covered separately. However, you may ask your security specialist for insurance recommendations and other legalities surrounding insurance, risk, and potential loss. Some stakeholders involved in event production may require you to have insurance ready for them. It would be best to have insurance taken into account when planning for your event.

What do event security services include?

Got a high-profile DJ to mix some tunes for your party? What about concert photographers who require some level of security to feel more at ease while covering an event? Airtasker makes it easy to hire security for events! Whether you need to hire a crowd manager for a live gathering or just want to make sure that your virtual event runs smoothly without compromising any data, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s what’s typically included when you book special event security on our platform:

End-to-end event security planning

Show and event security tend to need a prolonged duration to ensure that all stakeholders involved are secured and protected from the moment they’re involved in the production until the end of the event. Whether these stakeholders need to be driven around town or be secured on the actual event itself, it pays to have a security team for their peace of mind and yours. Event security offers end-to-end coverage and beyond depending on your event’s and stakeholders’ needs.

Varying levels of security

Different personalities require different levels of security. It’s not just a matter of the scope of the event that dictates just how much security is needed for an event. Some stakeholders will be explicit about their particular needs, which you will need to relay to specialists to provide security guard services. This ensures that the event will go smoothly with little to no fear of any untoward incidents happening. Event security guards can accommodate varying site security levels that fit your stakeholders’ particular needs, your venue, and even your type of event to maximise your peace of mind.

Virtual event security

Apart from securing stakeholders for holding events, virtual event security has also become more needed lately, given how many events recently have been held online — from concerts of your favourite artists to symposia with different high-profile personalities. While security detail for your stakeholders is still a must, securing the platforms and networks to hold your events is also important. With a high prioritisation in data and privacy, it is now more crucial to ensure that no data is breached and no stakeholder information is compromised.
