Insights from The Royal Highland Show 2023
Paragon Traffic Management’s Expertise Contributes to the Success of High-Profile Events
In the complex ecosystem of event planning and execution, a proficient traffic management company is an essential ally. At the Royal Highland Show 2023, Paragon Traffic Management played a crucial role in facilitating a successful event, drawing from our vast experience and strategic planning abilities.
The Power of Planning
At Paragon, we believe that meticulous planning is key to managing large-scale events. It starts with understanding the event’s scale, the expected footfall, and the specific challenges the location might pose. We liaise with local authorities, transport officials, police, and event security to anticipate potential issues and address them in our comprehensive traffic management plan.
For the Royal Highland Show, our leadership team, Bryan Hosier and Derek Gallagher, led the planning efforts, ensuring seamless execution of our responsibilities. Our strategic planning takes into consideration every minor detail, from the positioning of traffic signals to the efficient management of parking spaces, ensuring smooth and hassle-free movement for all attendees.
Operational excellence on the ground
Effective traffic management during the event is a testament to our Traffic Management Operatives (TMOs) and their unwavering dedication. Our teams at Gate 1 and the A8/BP fuel station, headed by the likes of Patrick, Gareth, David Smith, Kyle, Steve, and Curtis, exemplified resilience and professionalism. Their excellent management skills, infectious positivity, and ability to handle pressure helped ensure the smooth flow of traffic.
Our commitment to efficient traffic management extends beyond regular operating hours. Our night crew, comprising Craig and Stewart, carried the torch of excellence into the early hours, exemplifying Paragon’s 24/7 commitment to service.
The Event organisers’ perspective
From an event organiser’s perspective, having a reliable and experienced traffic management company is invaluable. The smooth movement of vehicles and people is fundamental to the overall event experience. Delays or mismanagement can lead to dissatisfaction among attendees and potential safety hazards, negatively affecting the event’s reputation.
A traffic management company like Paragon does more than just directing vehicles. We contribute to the overall success of the event, enabling organisers to focus on their core activities while we handle the flow of traffic seamlessly.
The Royal Highland Show 2023 serves as a testament to our proficiency in managing traffic at large-scale events. Our team’s invaluable contribution played a pivotal role in the event’s success, further solidifying our position as a trusted partner for event organisers.
