Why two-way radio hire is essential for event management16 February 2023
When you’re managing an event, being able to effectively coordinate on the ground personnel in all capacities is critical to a successful run. At the very least, this means making sure your events team has the right communications equipment at hand when they need it most.
If you’re looking for reliable communication equipment with high quality sound and transmission capabilities for your next event, two-way radio is the superior choice compared to mobile phones.
Two-way radios provide better coverage. You can’t rely on mobile phone networks to work in all areas of your event, but two-way radio systems are built for reliability and convenience for events anywhere in Australia, including remote locations.
That means no dead spots, dropped calls or service issues. Two-way radios can also be configured to cover large, specified areas and are dependable in difficult areas such as underground parking.
Two-way radios are more reliable in emergencies. Phone systems can get overwhelmed during emergencies as people try make calls, check on their loved ones or report concerns about an unsafe situation nearby.
Dedicated radio frequencies can be configured with priority channels and special call signs that ensure messages are heard clearly by staff who need it most.
Two-way radios are also better for group calling, private conversations and emergency alerts compared to mobile phones, giving you greater flexibility for event communications.
Two-way radio: renting vs buying
If you’re unsure which two-way radio system is right for your event, renting could be the answer. Here are the reasons why you should consider radio hire:
Renting allows you to scale up or down as needed. If you’re unsure of the number of attendees or staff needed for your event, renting is a smart choice, as it allows you to quickly add or reduce the number of radios as needed.
Renting equipment gives you access to the latest technology. Try the latest and greatest communications system for your event without having to commit to buying straight away. This is particularly beneficial if you’re planning to use the same equipment at future events but want assurance of suitability first.
Renting provides greater choice in features depending on event requirements, providing you the best system, no matter the size or location of your event.
Radio rentals cost less than you might think. It can be more cost effective to rent two-way radios for events compared to buying your own equipment and having to pay for storage, insurance and repairs.
