We'd like to say a big thank you to our 2018 sponsors, partners, tradeshow exhibitors, presenters, volunteers, and of course attendees. Although the snow cut the wrap-up short, we had incredibly positive feedback from our attendees, were excited by the new connections and ideas cultivated, and have come away feeling inspired - and ready to plan next year with loads of suggestions and ideas.
 
Your feedback about this year's experience was invaluable and we're busying prepping for the 2019 conference!

BONUS 2-DAY WORKSHOP: CROWD SAFETY

 

We're pleased to welcome Eric Stuart, Director of Gentian Events, to our conference to facilitate his popular two-day workshop: Crowd Safety: Combining Math, Physics, Psychology and Behaviours to Achieve Safe Outcomes.

 

The workshop aims to provide an understanding of the four aspects of basic crowd safety, and to provide techniques to plan and manage safe pedestrian flows in crowded places during all phases of an event including emergencies.

 

Objectives

By the end of the workshop you should be able to:

  • Understand the main risks in managing crowds;

  • Understand the differences between crowd management and crowd control;

  • Describe the phases of crowds and their psychology;

  • Conduct calculations for flow rates and density for people in crowded places;

  • Identify crowd behaviours in emergency situations and how to manage them;

  • Understand how to use non-computer models to plan for crowds;

  • Understand behaviours that affect crowds: Route modelling, Normalcy Bias, Dread Theory, De-individuation and the RAS.
