The floor is yours.
Our aim is to improve experience, by better managing risk, so our spaces become safer and more enjoyable both emotionally and physically.
Night time economy risks such as sexual harassment are not just common, they are expected. Average night out antics and part of ‘the culture’ at the heart of a heady mix. But the floor is changing. And we are taking a stand.
Your venue speaks VOLUMES.
Artists are speaking up, club-goers are demanding reform and venues are in the spotlight to deal with issues more effectively.
But as a venue, you’re not alone. Venues across the world are considering how to make dance floors safer. We want club-goers to be able to speak up. But we also want to give you the support and know-how to make your venue safe. So that you stand out from the crowd (for the right reasons).Read more stories
