Make your venue scare-free this Halloween season

Make your venue scare-free this Halloween season

October 26, 2020

As Halloween approaches, many attractions across the country will be preparing to open their doors to visitors looking to celebrate this spooky season. The government’s lockdown, however, means that there are many venues that have to close, but for those remaining open, there are a few things to pay attention to so that the scariest thing at your venue is the decorations.

It has been a very difficult year for the attraction industry, however with venues reopening and uncertainty surrounding COVID restrictions increasing, now is the right time to review how your visitor attraction can adapt to stay safe and secure.

Rule of 6

The most recent government guidelines state that for visitors can not attend attractions or events in groups bigger than 6, both in inside and outside settings. It is therefore important that you do everything you can to prevent groups from interacting with each other, especially if they know each other. This can be a major obstacle for businesses that serve food or drinks.

At Vennersys, our mobile food ordering solution allows guests to use their own device to pre-order food and drinks and order refreshments directly to their table. As well as keeping contact between guests and staff to a low level, this system also ensures payment remains contactless and leads to fewer queues and reduced waiting times. This food ordering solution can be easily and fully integrated into the Vennerys EPOS system.

Track and Trace

The recently released NHS Track and Trace app helps to contain the virus by allowing visitors to track where they have been visiting. Make sure you have your unique QR code set up so that visitors can check into your venue easily when they first arrive.

Our automated ticketing software supports containment of the virus as guests will pre-book their tickets for your Halloween events online, and so it is easier to see who entered your venue and on what date. This allows you to track customers should you need to contact them following the risk of a localised outbreak of the virus.

Social Distancing

The government’s guidance states that it’s imperative for individuals who do not live in the same household to stay 2 metres apart or 1 metre with extra precautions in place. With these regulations in place, it’s important that you consider the number of guests you allow into your Halloween events so that social distancing remains possible at all times.

With an ticket management system such as Vennersys, detailed sales and admissions reports make analysis of visitor demographics easy and quick, thus allowing you to optimise for events. Find out more in 5 Important Considerations for Capacity Management at Your Venue.
