Event Risk Management Case Study

  4. 4. INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL Major delays in setup SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: The event was supposed to be from 12nn to 12mn but it started 2pm and ended at around 10pm. -Onsite situation, people are not properly informed -May cause crowding at the entrance due to waiting too long before they can come in -Unmet expectation: ticket was good for 12 hrs but the event was short of 2 hrs The organizers should’ve implemented and complied to a strict production schedule to avoid delays. They also should have surveyed if running a whole day event for 12hrs is feasible.
  5. 5. INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL Not enough staff for checking of personal belongings and ID SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: Having been part of the guest list as a media partner, we were told to approach the guest list registration booth and bring IDs for identification but no one checked our bags and IDs when we presented our tickets to them. - Despite the security, anyone can come in and out of the event -Risks of human threats are high -Minors can also come in the event, even if drinking isn’t allowed for them There should be ample staff to monitor and regulate the people coming in and out of the event.
  6. 6. INTERNAL AND EXTERNALStaff IDs are not visible SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: Organizers should have printed larger IDs fast identification in case of emergency and other similar situations. IDs are color-coded but their size and the print on them which indicates the designation of each staff are not visible to the audience. Only co-organizers understand the color scheme. - People do not know the right staff to approach in case an incident arises - A simple incident may turn to a big commotion considering the time spent to look for the person-in- charge
  7. 7. INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL Unidentified event organizer SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: During the event promotions and even on the event itself, the organizers were never revealed. As a media partner, we asked to interview the organizers, but our contact person deviates from the subject. In case anything untoward happens in the event, no one will know who would be accountable for it. The organizers should have identified themselves from the onset of the event’s marketing and promotions.
  8. 8. INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL Weather SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: Though it did not rain, the weather was very hot and windy. The setup was greatly affected by these weather conditions as tents and other temporary structures were not properly installed. -The installation of lights above where the tables and chairs are arranged under the tent visibly sway to the wind. -Tech people frequently go up the tents while the event is going on without proper attire as they were rushing to fix the setup. The organizers should have anticipated the weather’s effect in their setup and must have considered a longer load in/load out period.
  9. 9. INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL Competition - Wanderland SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: A week before the event, another event of almost the same concept was held. -Wanderland is an annual event now on its second year (2014) -Organizers were identified -Not just music and drinks, also had art festival -Had a wider scope of target market -Had only one ticket price -Had proper installation and setup - Space was wider DrinkUpPH organizers should have addressed this competition by adding more elements to their event and marketing it as bigger or better than other similar events. Also, they should have identified themselves.
  10. 10. NATURAL AND HUMAN THREATS Excess metal posts SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: Put barricades that has a signboard -limits or construction On- so that people may avoid the area. Excess metal posts should be cut and kept away from people going in and out of the place or area. They should be stored in a truck or a place with no access of people. Clear the area ASAP after installing the tent.
  11. 11. NATURAL AND HUMAN THREATS Exposed wiring SEVERITY: HIGH RECOMMENDATION: Use floor/wire cable cover or protector. Use junction boxes If the wiring is on a flat surface, duct tapes May be used to cover the wires Align wiring at one side and fix tangled wire and put them in a junction box if possible or use cable locks especially for long wires
  12. 12. NATURAL AND HUMAN THREATS Missing tent cover SEVERITY: MEDIUM RECOMMENDATION: Do not remove tent cover once it has been stored/installed especially when there are people already. Tent covers are used for protection for heat and rainy weather. Use tent locks so that when its windy, the cover wont get removed.
  13. 13. NATURAL AND HUMAN THREATS Proximity between tent posts and tables SEVERITY: MEDIUM RECOMMENDATION: Set a distance of at least 3 meters away between tables and chairs from tent posts. Do not congest the area with a lot of tables and chairs. Add them when necessary only but in another area where passage is still free of way. There should be a wide spacing from one table to another and from any other fixture.
  14. 14. NATURAL AND HUMAN THREATS Scattered materials in the area SEVERITY: MEDIUM RECOMMENDATION: Have a storage area or room where all equipment or materials needed or extra stuffs are placed and label them for easy identification. Assign a person-in-charge for all equipment and materials.
