Event Rental Options for Crowd Control & Social Distancing

July 3, 2020

Experts recommend social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but that doesn’t necessarily mean postponing or cancelling your upcoming event. Rental products can help you manage the crowd and maintain sufficient space between your guests.

If you’re planning a gathering or already have one scheduled, you’ll need to develop strategies for keeping everyone safe. To that end, you may want to consider one or more of the following event rental crowd control options.


Retractable stanchions or stanchions connected with velvet ropes provide an easy and attractive way to ensure your guests practice social distancing. For added elegance, pair the barriers with a roll-out carpet.

Rental Walls

A range of event rental walls are available, any of which can be used to divide the venue space and help with crowd control. Many options — including curved chalk walls and faux boxwood walls – also add a unique touch to the decor.

LED Wall Panels

Place LED wall panels in areas where guests need direction and add custom adhesive graphics or signs to create a fun and effective method of crowd control. The panels glow in a wide array of colors and work well with other pieces of LED furniture.

Themed Rentals

Props and event rental décor can also serve to assist with social distancing. For example, faux hay bales and whiskey barrels suit any sort of western-themed gathering, while vintage sleds and fir trees are great for holiday parties.

Floor Clings

To help keep everyone safe at an event, experts recommend that guests refrain from congregating in tight groups and instead remain at least six feet apart. Place floor clings in the right spots, and the attendees will have an easier time with social distancing.

Custom Signage

Using signs in select venue areas can assist with crowd management by directing guests on how to move safely through the space. Simple arrows may suffice, or event planners can create custom signage with a specific message and state-of-the-art graphics.
