Now, the concept of a meet and greet has become almost like a sort of trend, providing fans with a moment of bliss, where they get to meet their idol, take a picture and maybe even have a small chat. However, this moment of bliss, can easily spiral into something unexpected. Keep reading the blog to become aware of the possible risks that come with meet and greets and how a team of experts can handle them effectively.
Reasons why a meet and greet can require security:
At a meet and greet, all kinds of people are given the permission of being in close vicinity of the person hosting it. In such a large crowd, it is difficult to differeniate a fan, wanting to meet the person they look up to, and a person that can be a threat. Moreover one can never know when an uproar might occur, during all that commotion.
Invasion of personal space:
When planning a meet and greet, the hosts intention is for their admires to have a nice time. However in some cases, people in their excitement forget that their idol is human too. A human who just like everyone, becomes uncomfortable with people standing too close or not letting them have enough space of their own. This can become overwhelming for a person and at times, delay the smooth flow of a meet and greet, because of some fans unwilling to leave their side, keeping others waiting. Being someone looked up to by people, it can become hard to say no to a loyal fan, even if it is necessary to do so. To avoid facing such a dilemma, why not let a third person intervene. An unbiased person, such as a security guard, can save one the hassle of being put in such a conflicting situation.
When put in such an exhilarating but hectic enviornment, people can lose control, everyone equally looking forward to meeting their admired figure. This usually can get out of hand, when such folks decide to take the aggressive approach for resolving a dispute. To steer clear of, or stop this before any injuries occur, a team of experienced guards, sounds like the best solution.
