Whenever it is time to setup an event, the promoters naturally tend to focus on the most visible and exciting elements first. This means the decor, the promotions beforehand, the speakers – all of which are important and valuable, but hardly the whole picture. An event may have a strong premise, god speakers and might be well decorated, but without good traffic flow, easy directions, and the right tools for speakers to communicate, the entire thing won’t work. While many venues do provide these, but it is important for every company to understand what they are in case you ever come across a venue that does not provide these for you.
Whenever you need to make sure that people follow an orderly path, the best way to do is by using stanchions. Commonly associated with the lines at the movie theatres in years past, stanchions have now grown up to be used in many other locations. Many stanchions are actually quite attractive and are available in a number of different finishes that can be tailored to match your event decor. Also, rope and stanchions tend to be durable and easy to store.
Stanchions are comprised of posts and rope, and each can be customized in a number of ways. Companies generally offer different lengths and style of rope, which are attached to the posts of stanchions either by a hook or a snap depending on your choice. The posts of the stanchions can be as lightweight or as heavy as you would like it to be, and the height can also be adapted. It may also be possible to rent stanchions depending on your requirements, or they may be included from the venue. Make sure to ask about the stanchions specifically if you intend to use them. Don't assume that they are available.
