If you're a venue owner then you know that all customers are not the same. The laid back and easy to get along with customer and the more demanding customer have expectations that are worlds apart. In the current business climate you know that keeping your customers happy while keeping your sanity can be a difficult balancing act. It's hard to believe but yes there are still venues that don't see the value in requiring their customers to have a security company for events at their venue. These venues are not only placing their business at great risk but their reputation in the community as well. We all know that word of mouth travels quickly especially in the social media world.
Heres a few reasons why every venue should require event security.
1. Peace of mind is very important as a business owner. You will be able to spend your time doing the business of the venue owner. A venue owner doesn't need to worry about the security of the event if they've hired professionals to secure the venue. No running around checking invites, checking identifications, bag searches, etc... That's all taken care of by a professional security company if you've hired one.
2. Venue owners know that their building and sites are going to have numerous people visit and not all are going to be honest people. A professional security company can help guard your venue from theft. The venue that you've spent your money to create shouldn't be looted after an event or during an event. Guarding your site and the possessions on site are gonna make your guest feel at ease knowing their wedding gifts are secure. The vendors that setup equipment on site are gonna feel better knowing they need not worry about their expensive electronics disappearing. A professional security company deters theft.
3. Party crashers are known on TV as fun and humorous but in reality it's an expense that the customer has to cover and many times they can create issues that could've been avoided had there been a professional security company. There should be site protocols that give invited guests a warm and inviting entrance into your venue and the opposite for unwanted visitors. Trespassing is a serious issue and if someones ex relationship shows up to make a scene it could potentially backfire on the venue owner for not properly securing the event. Checking for invites and making sure the event participants are those who are welcome isn't something a venue owner needs to deal with if they've hired a professional security company.
4. Alcohol related issues are one of the main reasons that you should have a professional security company on site. Under age drinking is a very common issue that venues deal with. Using a professional security company can aleve your worries about minors being served or drinking off others drinks. Let the security be the "bad guy" who notifies the guest that alcohol is only for those 21 and up. Some people need help realizing they've drank too much. While others need to be shown the door after causing a scene. Hiring a professional security company will keep you safe from fines and possible insurance liabilities when it comes to serving alcohol at an event.
