REGAL's 3D models of the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH and the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA.
REGAL is pleased to announce that we are providing analysis support for the 2016 Republican and Democratic National Conventions. Working directly alongside Homeland Security and the US Secret Service, REGAL is developing ingress, egress, and evacuation models for both conventions using our REGAL Evac tool. REGAL is excited to be supporting the National Conventions for the third consecutive time, having also provided analyses and support in 2008 and 2012.
REGAL will assist security planning efforts at the conventions with multiple scenarios, including ingress screening, egress flow, and emergency response that requires the evacuation or relocation of patrons. Using REGAL Evac, our team is producing sophisticated 3D visualizations to analyze crowd behaviors such as:
- Congestion points during an evacuation
- Ingress security checkpoint queuing
- Transportation configuration and optimization
- First responder access
- Resource allocations throughout the venue
- Security procedures and placements
The Republican National Convention will be held at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, with an anticipated 50,000 people converging on the city for the four day event. The Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, PA will play host to the Democratic National Convention, where attendance of more than 35,000 delegates and visitors is anticipated. Speaking on the importance of security planning, DNC chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman said “We believe that it was our proven track record of hosting big events safely and efficiently with a dynamic team of top-tier professionals to organize and manage a conference of this magnitude, paired with our City’s tremendous amenities, its accessible location and historical significance, which made Philadelphia the ideal choice for the 2016 DNC.”
REGAL is proud to be a key part of this process and remains committed to our goal of providing security support at the highest level.
