Minimal Risk secure the 2018 Diamond Anniversary Game Fair
The event was held at picturesque Ragley Hall in Warwickshire between Friday 27th and Sunday 29th July 2018 and hosted in excess of 120,000 attendees and over 800 exhibitors over the three days. Visitors enjoyed all the wonders of the countryside and the many varied trades and industries linked to it.
Despite the high temperatures on Friday and the downpours of Sunday visitors and exhibitors enjoyed a wonderful spectacle, fitting of the 60th Anniversary.
From the centralised control centre Minimal Risk worked in conjunction with: site management, event organisers, the fire contractor, medical teams and traffic management teams to ensure the event ran perfectly to plan.
For the first time in the events history Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVS or ‘drones’) were used by Minimal Risk to further improve event security and traffic management.
“Our UAVs now play an important role within our event security, event management and traffic control” comments Minimal Risk director - Greg Cole “They are incredibly important in helping to reduce ‘on the ground’ response time. With our team securing such a large area, the ‘drones’ can be deployed to continually feed-back images, or they can be sent to locate a reported issue. The real-time aerial footage overlayed with GPS data can be used help guide the response team whether that be toward: security, fire brigade or first aid incidents.”
Minimal Risk were delighted to once again offer their services to such a prestigious and high profile event and stationed skilled Stewards, SIA DS and SIA CP Licenced personnel daily at the event. Minimal Risk personnel managed entrances and exits, secured the site both night and day also dealing with many visitor requirements. They also secured the site throughout the build and breaking-down periods of the event. MRC Directors lived on site for nearly two weeks to directly support and manage security operations.
Feedback from the: Game Fair, exhibitors, visitors and venue has been very positive and Minimal Risk look forward to supporting The Game Fair in the future.
The Game Fair 2019 will be held at Hatfield House on 26th, 27th and 28th July. More information is available at www.thegamefair.org
