Actavo Events, collaborated with St. Patrick’s Festival to provide crowd control infrastructure in Dublin city centre, for the 16th consecutive year, for the 2024 St. Patrick’s Day Parade.

Commencing at 1am on Sunday 17 March, a 140-strong Actavo Events team installed a staggering eight kilometres of crowd control barriers; 41 pedestrian crossing points; two separate media structures to support live broadcasting and two mobile grandstands for dignitaries.

The complex logistics of the event were coordinated from the command centre, with a dedicated focus on safety and operational excellence. Once the official parade concluded, the crew began the process of removing all infrastructure from city centre, and working with An Garda Síochána to ensure minimal disruption.

The St Patrick’s Day Parade is a global landmark event and Actavo is very proud to be a trusted partner. We have been working with the St. Patrick’s Festival since 2009, so every year the whole process becomes more efficient. Our top priority is the safety of the public, and crowd control infrastructure is crucial to this at any public event, not to mention one as big as the St Patrick’s Day Parade.

The company also utilised technology to enable team members to effectively manage their time, and traffic management software to ensure that Traffic Management Plans were as efficient as possible, minimising disruption to the public.
