One of the world’s largest websites, Venuedomain.com has finally confirmed its popularity.   The site has now received in excess of 1’755’076 page requests, so far and will break the
2 million mark in 2016.   So why not advertise your venue or hotel with us today, as over 900  suppliers have already done so.

Traffic stats are available on request to prove our visitor activity.

The worlds biggest search tool for venues hits another milestone – we just achieved 100k’s worth of page requests in just 11 days.

This is a great start for the new year and marks the start for great things in the future for this niche promotion company.

Eventdomain.co.uk  sure see its share of bad customers over the years, you know the type, the ones who take advertising/links, then claim they dont owe etc –  like the following bunchof  idiots Flavourz Event and Party Services, which we assume is a small, sole trader, but we’ll fill you in on this operation.

On the 7th Dec 2014,  they took a listing on Eventdomain, and they were supposed to pay us via bank transfer, but when we checked with our bank, obviously they didn’t, so we
fired off an invoice and waited – now usually companies contact us to arrange payment, but this one didn’t,  so we contacted them and the little girl (who answered)  went nuts, psycho infact demanding we remove her and how dare we charge her for a service she admits she signed upto – oh how awful!   well, not really as we are used to it, but got no chance of telling our side of things, infact when we mentioned that Trading Standards were on our side, and that we
have contract, and won our case against others in Court, she went nuts – nice huh, some people.

She then tried to make out she didnt know it was a paid service, hmmm, funny how our fees are clearly displayed throughout registration, in our terms and our advertise page – oh and don’t forget the huge purple graphic and flash viewer
as well – perhaps she’s blind or stupid, but likely both I suspect.   Terms & Conditions

Anyway, here’s the call transcript between Eventdomain and Flavourz so you can judge for yourselves:    Following our phone conversation today  19th December 2014 at 2:14pm:

———————————————————–

The Call Conversation:

Eventdomain:   Hello,  we are calling today as we are one of your creditors, and you didnt pay us when you should have done.

Flavourz:  Right, and you are?

Eventdomain:     You took some advertising on one of our websites, Eventdomain.co.uk

Flavourz;  Oh right, yes, er, we thought it was free, cos when we signed up right, it never said it was paid.

Eventdomain:   Well, it says so on all our registration pages, so its imposible to miss that, and we can prove it.

Flavourz:          But we didnt want to pay, so why cant you just remove us:

Eventdomain:  Sorry, it doesnt work that way, we provided a service to you and you must pay us, as we have contract.

Flavourz:   We arent going to pay you.

Eventdomain:   But we have a contract, you automatically signed up to when you registered to us.

Flavourz:  Yes, I did sign up, when I signed up I thought it was free.  I dont care, I dont care, I’m not paying you.

Eventdomain:   But we have an online contract, with Trading Standards backing me up.

Flavourz:    Whats an online contract?  yes, but when I signed up, why didnt you take payment online?   others take online payment.

Eventdomain:   you got an invoice and letter, sent on the 15th Dec to flavourzservices@yahoo.co.uk and the full details of how to pay were on the site when you signed up.

Flavourz:   No they werent, No they werent…

Eventdomain:   yes they are, in about 6 different places, and also links from the homepage eg:    http://www.eventdomain.co.uk/advertise/

We then sent an email to Flavourz Event and Party Services:

Let me explain, as amicable as I wanted the comms to go, you chose to have a slagging match in the hope it will make this go away – I assure you, this will NOT be going away.   Let me show you proof of what happens and what we did to others when we took legal action: (please see attachment).   We will prove our paid services, that you knew about them and yet still signed up and took our service.  In doing so, we have an online contract and this is Trading Standards view on Eventdomain vs Debtors:

The main problem with t&c’s is whether they are part of a contract.  If they are referenced in a signature box or you cannot proceed to contractually agree without clicking that you have read and agree to abide by the t&c’s, then they are part of the contract.  Of course, whether Click4 Cabs is worth suing is another matter but it looks as if you have a legal right to claim from them.

—————————————

This is good evidence from a Government agency, backing Eventdomain up saying we have a contract and right to claim.    So we can do this amicably, you can do the right thing and pay, or we take further action, which you won’t enjoy, no matter how much you claim you don’t care.    It costs just £25 to begin action against you, so you might want to consider your options plus we have other options we are fully prepared to use, if you fail to pay us.

Also you may want to view our full Terms, just so you wont be able to act or claim innocence in this:   http://www.eventdomain.co.uk/terms-conditions-eventdomain/

You are advised to pay via bank transfer today:

Failure to pay will result in action

Kind regards

Eventdomain marks a giant milestone by reaching 1 Million Views  (1’002’216)  so far.

The 6 month mark is a far cry from ED’s humble ‘traffic beginnings’ –  back in 2006, when it reached 650’000 views at the 12 month mark.

Eventdomain’s Stats History

2006 –  650’000  views

2010 – 472’063  views

2011 –  694’745  views

2012 – 948’389  views

2013 –   1’002’216   (upto June 13)

so we expect to smash that 1 million mark to 2 million hits by the close of 2013.     Total hits to Eventdomain over 2006, 10, 11, 12 and 13 is:  3’767’413.


Event Security

Event security london is one of ‘crowd control’ combined with basic security duties like patrolling, pass/I.D checks and access control.    But the main difference is one of venue control, to secure the venue internally and externally by placement of multiple officers at key points.

Venue officers can be known as Event Stewards, Security Officers, or just plain Guards – but the role is the same which is to protect the delegates, the public, premises and suppliers from threats or just to see the event runs without incident.

The Security Guard

These are either from a military background or tend to be civillians from other industries.  Requirements tend to be for people with extensive customer/people facing backgrounds as events require dealing with the public directly.    The most preferred personnel are likely from Retail, Hospitality, Customer Services or those who hold qualifications/training in those areas.

There’s no such thing as ‘the best’ operative or guard  –  ALL security staff are qualified and now legally have to be so whether its Static Guarding, Close Protection trained or Mobile Officers who previously sat at least the Security Industry Training Organisation (SITO) 4 day course and qualification to operate in the UK.    Now the standards are higher and require potential officers to be licensed by at least passing either the Level 2 Award in Security Guarding or Level 2 Award in Door Supervision, both offered by National Open College Network and City & Guilds.

The Security Agency

You have 2 types – the general (with event security segment)  and event security specialist agencies.   General agencies can easily supply guards to cover events,  but sometimes large events/venues demand a higher calibre or status of guard – or one that specialises in event security.  Such guards – can provide a more efficient service as their well-drilled and experienced with venue operations,  but usually smaller events request merely a ‘presense’ to keep crowd conflict to a minimum.   So contracts will depend on a client’s needs and thus the type of guards deployed to sites.


Securing the Venue

Venue Security London is one of Access Control and Patrolling.  Now, usually venues have 2 access points (front and rear), with one to two guards at each point, perhaps a metal detector and detection wands for premises with large footfall and depending on the event type.  Depth of security will depend on size of event, for instance a concert requires larger security than a nightclub venue would, that relies on minimal door staff.

Searching is done in a set way eg:  male on male and female on female, this is to prevent any females visitors from accusing male officers of rape, touching etc –  although its rare and with current laws, it’s a very risky undertaking.   Most guards are ‘contract’  which means their hired in via a security guard company such as Chubb or 1st Security Guards etc,  duties are often patrolling, issuing tickets, directing traffic, searching the public, checking passes or ejecting trouble-makers from the venue, ensuring the event remains enjoyable.  Guards/Officers will switch roles from static to patrols around the venue, to protect the public, control numbers, and perform general safety checks.
