Weslo presents a deep and broad understanding about event management with a focus on best practices..
The provision of First Aid facilities is essential and critical to any event or festival, and must be appropriately equipped and easy to find by patrons. The number of first aid posts and personnel required depends on the size of the event and the level of risk involved with the activities at the event. St John Ambulance has provided a guide based on the number of patrons, however as an event organiser you will need to assess the risk of the activities. If considerable risk activities are included as part of your event program, the emergency support services such as first aid providers should be included in the planning stages of your event and they can provide advice as to how many personnel and posts you may require.
St John Ambulance Australia has suggested the following as a general guide:

When deciding upon layout, think about how different areas and attractions will complement each other. The layout of your event whether it is indoor or outdoor can provide a different experience for your audience. The following is a list of suggestions to consider when deciding your layout:
