With the constant evolution of conferences and events, organisers from around the world have developed best practices for ensuring the safety of their guests. However, as conferences continue to increase in size, ‘best practices’ no longer consist of cut-and-dry guidelines. Today, safety and security risks must first be identified, and the necessary measures must then be implemented accordingly. With the latest advancements in conference technology, the task isn’t as daunting as it may seem. Continue reading to find out how technology can be used to enhance the safety and security aspects of your next conference.
With facial recognition technology, attendees are instantly recognized through a camera as soon as they register, which is then compared to a photo that already exists on file. As such, event security is elevated from the second the attendee arrives.
Again, this touches on facial recognition technology. Each attendee and staff member can be accounted for throughout the event and advanced software can assist in alerting organizers to monitor any risks identified with conference delegates.
An event application is the perfect platform to communicate safety information and briefings. Fire exits, emergency procedures, first aid stations and emergency contact information can all be loaded onto the app for easy access. Push notifications can also be incorporated into most apps for emergency bulletins.
Using simulator technology, event organizers can create simulations of the conference area and attendee traffic to assist in planning for emergencies. In such instances, computer models are created using site and event specific data to forecast potential problem areas.
Using state-of-the-art security cameras (such as Bosch’s IP cameras), security personnel can monitor security camera footage from laptops, iPads and other mobile devices. Some cameras are also equipped with facial recognition technology that can trigger silent alarms through event security technology.
