Event Safety Alliance 

AGCS Entertainment has entered into a partnership with the Event Safety Alliance (ESA) as Title Insurance Sponsor, playing an integral role in supporting event safety.

Entertainment industry members and safety experts founded the ESA with a mission to create a common safety protocol for assessing hazards and controls at live events in the United States. The group’s long term goal is to promote safer events through training and education.

The ESA has developed the Event Safety Guide that provides best practices for every aspect of live events. A diverse team comprised of tour managers, stage technicians, weather experts, firefighters, legal experts, insurance professionals and other event safety experts synthesized information from several established safety guides into a single document that is easy to understand and apply.

The Event Safety Guide is a living document, continually evaluated and updated as new approaches and technologies emerge. Building training tools and an accreditation program is also part of ESA’s safety initiative to make production of live events infinitely safer for all involved.

Managing efficient operations and public safety at large-scale public events — such as music festivals, marathons, political rallies and parades — has become more complex and challenging. The Event Intelligence Group provides the services and tools that help event organizers and health and safety managers maintain a more complete awareness of their environment to ensure a safer and more efficient event.

Event Intelligence Group gathers relevant data from on-site resources such as high-definition security cameras (HD CCTV), video analytics and social media. This information is collated and fed real-time into the Communications Center to be used to resolve problems before they escalate. Video analytics can count people, perform facial recognition, recognize license plates and track crowd density. The company performs location-based monitoring of social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Four Square. They can also provide GPS tracking and live weather information.
