Conferences, Exhibitions, Sports, Arts and Culture events, Rallies, Shows, Music Festivals and much more are now part of our everyday lives, often held at venues that were never designed for the purpose, from public roads to large open spaces. Indoor events too have grown with many exhibitions taking place in multi-hall, purpose built centres the size of a small town.
From the management of contractors and deliveries at the build-up, to security, safety and co-ordination during the event, through to the break-down, ‘out’ and clean up – organisers and their teams are well aware that they should expect the unexpected in whatever form it takes.
Which is why the use of two-way radios in event management is so widespread and for good reason; whatever happens in and around an event, someone needs to know – and two-way radios provide the instant, reliable communications tool that underpins every successful event.
Kenwood has been involved in supplying its proven two-way radio equipment for use at major events for many years, from the ever present licensed analogue radios and ProTalk license free PMR446 walkie-talkies to the complete trunked communications centres at large events and festivals which allow Contractors, Crowd Management, Safety and Medical teams, Stewards, Artist Management, VIP Concierge Services, Caterers, Site and Stage Management, Transport, Sanitation, Waste Management and of course Security staff to communicate within their own groups and cross-communicate with extended event management teams as required.
Since the launch of Kenwood’s NEXEDGE® peer to peer and trunked digital two-way radios and walkie talkie solutions, an increasing number of customers in the event industry have upgraded to the improved clarity, increased coverage, additional flexibility and enhanced security of NEXEDGE® digital two way radio technology.
Today, in addition to its NEXEDGE® fully scalable digital systems, Kenwood can offer dPMR and DMR digital solutions alongside the latest ProTalk digital license-free PMR446 radios featuring digital/analogue mixed mode.
As you would expect, all Kenwood professional series hand portable walkie talkies conform to MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F/G for ruggedness and durability and are IP54/55 Water & Dust Intrusion rated, making them ideal for use in hire fleets and outdoor applications.
