Crowd management: which factors are leading the decisions and what does the future hold?
Frank Wijnveld had built an extensive experience in crowd management. Important competitions rely on this expertise, just like the UEFA Champions League did for the Final in Madrid 2019. During this Safety & Security e-Workshop, he will elaborate on the 3 key factors of crowd management: density, throughput and crowd psychology as leading factors in the decision making process. Furthermore, analytics tools such as DIM-ICE and RAMP are being discussed with their separate benefits. Thereafter, the challenge of COVID-19, social distancing and crowd management will be highlighted as an important aspect of the new normal.
