Complexity comes in many forms. In examining this from a crowded places perspective we tend to consider dynamics-related issues and traditionally-accepted geographically complex events, be they single site or multi-site. This session will investigate some of the additional layers that contribute to complexity, including command and control, integration and interoperability, management structures, historical inertia, cultural issues, audience profile and threat and risk perspectives. Balanced against this, it will explore the growing role for the crowd safety manager and the means by which crown management planning might identify and manage such complexity.
