3 Things to Consider for Event Planning in 2021

With some restrictions easing across England today, many of us will be feeling a sense of relief that some industries can begin to return to normal. It is one of the first steps to opening up the country again, which may be promising to those who work in the events industry.

For the last year, many events have been continually postponed or cancelled altogether, with organisers facing an uncertain future. Now, many festival organisers are planning to go ahead with their events, albeit with some differences depending on the measures in place at the time.

At SRP Hire Solutions, we have worked with a number of organisations in the past to help them achieve a successful event, whether it’s for one day or over a weekend. With that in mind, here are just 3 things you should consider if you are planning an event for 2021.


Can your event facilitate social distancing?

Despite restrictions lifting and the promise that things will be back to normal by June, the situation with the pandemic can change very quickly. Social distancing could be a part of our lives for some time in order to keep transmission of the virus as low as possible, so this should be an important consideration when planning your next event.

Music festivals and sporting events naturally result in crowds of people, so it might be in your best interest to ensure social distancing measures can be implemented if needed. One-way systems, efficient queueing and marked areas have all been proven to help ensure attendees stay safe when in a busy area.


Have you thought about hygiene facilities?

Hygiene facilities at an event are important at the best of times, and perhaps even more so now. Hiring the right facilities for your event is crucial, including toilets and perhaps even showers. This ensure guests have access to modern hygiene solutions, from standard units and sink stations to more specialised equipment.

Having the right amenities on site for both attendees and staff can be the difference between a successful event and one that leaves a negative impression. It’s important that people feel safe and that their wellbeing has been considered by the event organisers, particularly if you’re hoping to make it a recurring event.


How flexible is your event?

With a lot of things still very up in the air, especially when it comes to large gatherings, it may be helpful to consider a contingency plan should circumstances change. Could you still achieve the same type of event if certain restrictions were to return?

Think of potential outcomes such as moving the event online or making it smaller, should the worst happen and you have to reorganise your event. By planning ahead for different scenarios, it could increase your chance of the event still going ahead in some capacity.
