Safe Event Scheme are proud to present what3words as the official addressing partner to the scheme.

what3words is a new global addressing system that has given every 3m square on earth a unique three-word identifier - a what3words address. It enables people to communicate a precise location, anywhere in the world, using just three words.

By using what3words, attendees, traders and operations teams at events can communicate event locations easily, accurately, and efficiently, ensuring increased security and resilience.

The Safe Event Scheme is an initiative devised as a benchmark for the sports and events industry, post Covid-19. It takes into consideration government guidance, best practice, insurance evaluation and on-site requirements, and can be used as an industry tool by any event, both on a global scale and at local event level, to instil safety, trust and confidence.

what3words is built into the Safe Event Scheme Studio planning app to help events, venues, and partners, as well as the general public, find key locations at events, including main entrances, first aid points, evacuation routes, etc.

what3words vision

The what3words vision is to become a global standard for communicating location. For people to use what3words to find their tents at festivals, navigate to event hotspots and direct emergency services to an exact location.
