Weslo presents a deep and broad understanding about event management with a focus on best practices..
Events naturally necessitate the substantial movement of goods and people. The influx of freight and people to one centralised location presents event organisers with transportation conflicts that need to be managed.
People and vehicles do not share spaces particularly well and need to be separated. All deliveries and unloading of goods and equipment need to be conducted before the event opens to patrons. Once the event begins, all delivery vehicles should be off site and access limited to emergency vehicles only. Any vehicle movements within the event pedestrian zone during the event should be kept to a minimum, the speed limited to walking pace and whenever possible be escorted by event staff.
The aim of any great event is to attract the attendance of people. The travel practices of event attendees can place unduly pressure on the existing transport services and transport infrastructure. Therefore, event organisers need to consider how patrons are going to commute to and from the event, the effect on public transport services, parking and local street network operation.
If your event is likely to affect the operation of public transport services by causing an alteration in route, delay in services or requiring additional services, you must notify Public Transport Victoria. If you are planning a large event that will attract significant attendance it is recommended that you contact Public Transport Victoria to discuss the provision of extra public services on event day.
Car parking is often an issue for event’s organisers, local residents and businesses surrounding the event site. Ensuring your event is accessible via public transport will assist patrons to access your event without being dependant on the car.
The suggestions listed below can reduce car use, demand for parking, congestion of local street network and associated emissions. They can also make the event more enjoyable for patrons and residents, vendors and patrons of streets surrounding the event.
