We’ve been there, done that… but don’t do the yellow shirt.

It’s what you do. 

Different roles involve different levels of skill. What a company does at the show translates to capability and the trust placed in them by the event or artist. Equally important is whether a company shows up with a people to fill spots or are they managing the whole show.

History matters.

Major shows in the Maritimes take place in Charlottetown, Cavendish, Moncton and Halifax. These are the most complex and demanding of the security organizations. It’s not only good to see who is doing them, but also who did them and doesn’t any longer.

It’s not a numbers game.

All shows aren’t created equal. Big numbers are nice but bragging about artist counts or hours is like comparing apples and oranges when taken into context with large outdoor festivals. Stadium shows make for large numbers but have near zero planning outside of filling spots.

Cavendish Beach Music Festival

One of the premiere music events in Canada, Toursec has been involved with the CBMF since day one. The CBMF is held in picturesque Cavendish Beach, a popular tourist destination. CBMF continues a model event that has been studied by first response agencies from abroad. We’ve recognized it as one of the safest shows in the country with a fully operational incident command group spanning the entire first response spectrum.
