Working as a Think Tank in the field of Event Safety, Security and Crowded Spaces management, the YES Group (YOUROPE Event Safety Group) influences and promotes best practices in this field across Europe. The Group has organised numerous meetings and seminars between Event Safety managers and experts for the past 20 years, to enhance the learning and encourage the exchange of experiences in the field.
Having an expertise in both academic and practice, YES Group Members and Associates are regularly invited as speakers to public conferences, panel sessions and professional conventions at national and international levels to deliver their knowledge.
Every year at the European Festival Awards ceremony, the YES Group rewards the Health & Safety Innovation Award to one European festival. Decided by a jury of YES Group members, the Award goes to a festival who played a substantial role during the previous year in moving towards safer festivals and events.
