The Training Zone – NOT TO BE MISSED

New for 2018, Festout is working with Storm4Events to deliver an onsite training programme dedicated to safety, security and crowd management issues.  These sessions, to be confirmed very soon, will deliver complimentary training from leading, qualified industry trainers, exclusively at Festout. 

Our trainers will use case studies and theory over 8 hour long sessions to cover topics such as emergency planning, safety and security, counter-terrorism and crowd management.
