Every spring bank holiday, the Hertfordshire Agricultural Society puts on a full weekend of activities to promote farming, agriculture and associated skills, crafts, trades and professions. It’s a stunning event and the planning that goes on behind the scenes is no less impressive.
Stewarding an outdoor event in a large space is no mean feat: crowds jostle, children get fractious, exhibitors get tired, and all of that needs considering before you even think about the weather…
As event planners with years of experience, Herts County Show organisers know that high-quality communications are essential to this type of spectacle. They don’t leave it to chance – they call in Brentwood Communications.
Mobile phone coverage cannot always be relied upon at staged events, making two way radio the only dependable option. This year we supplied 45 Motorola DP2400 digital radios along with a Motorola DM3400 desktop base station, 24 d-shape earpieces and 15 fist mics, plus a repeater system to boost the coverage across the show ground.
Motorola two way radios have excellent range and a long battery life. They come with Intelligent Audio that adjusts automatically to compensate for background noise, making them ideal for an event where stewards are competing with farmyard animals to be heard! Health and safety is top priority at mass events, and with the Motorola equipment, Herts County Show organisers were well equipped to deal with any emergency situation that might have occurred. Obviously safety concerns need to remain low-key at a family day out, so we provided the stewards with over the ear d-shape earpieces for easy and discreet communication with other team members.
We heard that all went well at Herts County Showground in Redbourn this year. Brentwood Communications is delighted that our top-class radio kit ensured that organisers and attendees had one less thing to worry about and could focus instead on promoting and enjoying all the good things the countryside has to offer.
