A warm summer evening, good weather and many happy people, the ideal conditions for a good open air concert. So that such evenings can be a happy experience, you need good organization and planning.

Sabine Funk, among others, is responsible for such things. She is one of the leading experts for event safety and crowd management and is currently working on the German adaptation of the event safety guide. At the PLS she will be speaking about safety regulations at German events at the International Event Safety Conference in the Eventplaza. Prolight + Sound team asked her a few questions ahead of time.

While thousands of fans cheer in front of their favourite band’s stage, jump up and down or follow the hundreds of scenes in a musical, and entire hoard of event managers and event engineers have been working in the background. They not only think about the lighting, sound and autograph hour, the question of the safety at the events plays a crucial role in the planning. At the “1st International Event Safety Conference” experts will lecture and discuss these exact topics. The conference takes place parallel to Prolight + Sound. We spoke with the consultant, Hubert Klüpfel, Executive Director of TraffGo HT, in greater detail about his lecture topic: “Evacuation Simulations”.
