    Event organisation can be a complicated and logistically challenging industry, with so many factors to consider related to crowd control, staging, technical equipment, ticketing and much more.

    The key for planners of outdoor markets, sports days, festivals and cultural events is to streamline their to-do lists as much as possible and look for ways to improve efficiency in all aspects of the process.

    One of the major considerations for many organisers is traffic control, with car parks being required to accommodate hundreds or thousands of patrons and their vehicles.

    The last thing you want is for congestion and chaos in the parking area to impact on the smooth running of an otherwise great day.

    A variable message sign (VMS) can be used to provided multiple clear instructions to drivers as they enter the designated area - concise information may help to speed up the traffic flow process both prior to and after the event.

    It might also be important to divide the large area into different sections and create temporary thoroughfares using portable barriers and barricades.

    These and other traffic-related items are available to hire to help ensure your one-off event is memorable for all the right reasons.
