3 security essentials for political party conference

folder_openTemporary Events

Political party conferences frequently take place in the UK and abroad. These conferences are attended by world leaders and agents from different political groups around the world. These conferences must be secure enough to keep these people safe and protected. If you’re in charge of a political party conference, then read on for some tips on how to secure the site and reassure politicians and others no harm will come to them.


Good fencing can mean the difference between a safe, smooth-running conference and one where there is a risk of an imminent threat. Make sure fencing is set up well in advance and solidly secured. Zaun fencing can offer advice on what type of fencing is best for your political party conference and provide fencing for many other events as well.

Get security to recheck fencing on the day to ensure no gaps that a person could slip through or any week points that an angry crowd could knockdown. It would help if you secured any gaps immediately, so contact a professional company like Zaun to address these issues ahead of the day.

Well-trained security

Security is necessary to protect VIPs. For this type of event, well-trained security forces should start planning with you long before the event, as plans will need to be put in place if there is a disturbance or an attack. This is not something you can do the week before. You may also need to consult with the police as they may need to be involved with high profile guests.
