08/10/09 Dance event postponed - Stockland Park Saturday 10th October
Mad Man Events have decided to postpone the long anticipated Parkbeatz festival. The decision has come as a result of the security company pulling their services in the final hours, due to the loss of a family member. As safety for all staff and patrons at our events is paramount, we pride ourselves in upholding this reputation for this event and all future events.
Sourcing a reputable security company to provide a quality service is not something that can be done in 48 hours therefore the event must be postponed to the 17th October 2009 to ensure the safety of all patrons.
The event will proceed on the 17 October at 4:00pm -- 10:30pm at Stockland Park Kawana. Free bus services will still run as per the bus timetable schedule displayed on the website. Should anyone require further information about the change of date you may contact the Mad Man team via our website www.madmanevents.com alternatively reach us via the Mad Man info line on 0428 901 986.
We apologise for any inconvenience but I think we can all agree that the safety of the Sunshine Coast youth must come above all other concerns.
Senior Sergeant Ian Hasted from Kawana Waters Police said that the promoter on this event has acted responsibly by postponing the event to a more suitable time that will allow adequate supervision, "some promoters would push ahead and risk adverse outcomes, however this time the promoter should be commended for the professionalism and his interest in the youth of the Sunshine Coast"
Stockland Parks Senior Events and Operations Coordinator Simon Ball said it is a shame that the event has had to be postponed, the youth of the Sunshine Coast need more events like this, we are very impressed that the promoter has chosen to postpone to ensure the safety and security of those attending, these events are fantastic if run professionally and that means having the right amount of security and safety controls in place, next Saturday night with a new security and safety team will be a huge hit with the School age kids.
