Two-Way Radios for Entertainment Operations

When it comes to special events in both small and large venues, there’s a lot happening behind the scenes, like:

  • Directing patrons
  • Preserving the safety of your venue
  • Quickly relaying important info to your team

You might even be running a wedding or other kind of celebration, in which case you’ll need a way to convey information regarding food service, venue preparations, or even security detail.

No matter what kind of event it may be, you’ll want communications systems that work best for the needs of you and your staff. Two-way radios can be especially helpful, since they’re easy to use and can relay information in a timely manner.

The Best Motorola Two-Way Radios for Your Special Event

Two Way RadioWe supply a large selection of two-way radios from Motorola Solutions for your next special event.

Motorola is a leading name in the two-way radio market, and its products can give you communications that are:

  • Clear
  • Consistent
  • Easy

Not only that, but Motorola radios are very reliable. Every time you push the broadcast button, you’ll get the crisp calls you need to direct your team to wherever they’re wanted.

By utilizing these systems, you’ll have everything you need to help keep your staff members safe and your patrons happy, giving you great peace of mind.

One of the best things about two-way radios is that they come in a diverse range of applications and capabilities. No two special events are the same, so we can help you find a solution that’s tailored to your needs.

For enhanced coverage, Radio Communications of Virginia has its own wide-area radio network that covers Central Virginia. Our RCV Connect Plans provide an all-digital, push-to-talk subscription-based radio system. When your special events have you traveling throughout the area, a wide-area network makes it possible for a catering truck in the Richmond Metro area to radio to the main kitchen in Northern Neck.

A long-lasting battery life of up to 28.5 hours will keep you connected long after the last encore has ended, and then some.


Major conferences can host thousands of people from all over the country. Keeping all the moving parts coordinated and running smoothly requires reliable communication.

One of the biggest challenges of communicating with coworkers at a conference venue is the size of the building. Often, convention centers can be as large as a city block, and with concrete construction, getting signals through is difficult.

That’s why we often recommend the Motorola SL 7550. It’s both powerful and lightweight, making it easy and reliable to use. In fact, it’s the same radio that staff who work at The Mall of America use. The country’s largest mall has over 500 stores, four parking lots, and a roller coaster inside, but the Motorola SL 7550 is up to the task—and it can be for you, too.

Cell Phones vs Two-Way Radios for Special Events

Smartphones are everywhere these days, and for good reason. They make it possible to text, call, and connect to the internet on the go. However, when it comes to guaranteed communications at your next special event, two-way radios are a better choice. Here are some reasons why:

1.Two-Way Radios Can Be Customized to Your Event

Two-way radios can be built for certain industries. For example, walkie talkies for the manufacturing industry are more rugged and heat-resistant than two-way radios for front-of-house restaurant employees, who need equipment that is smaller and more discreet.

Cell phones, on the other hand, can only offer a one-size-fits-all approach to all applications. When it comes to running your special event as well as possible, a customized approach through two-way radios is the way to go.

2.Two-Way Radios Are More Durable

Many walkie talkie models can survive drops, submersion in water, and exposure to extreme temperatures. The same cannot be said for cell phones, which are less rugged than two-way radios.

3. Two-Way Radios Are More Reliable

When there’s something that requires immediate attention, two-way radios offer instant one-touch talk. For example, if security personnel at a sports stadium needs to alert team members about a lost child, using a cell phone means either dialing a number and hoping someone answers or sending a text and hoping that someone reads it. With a walkie talkie, however, you have an instant connection instead. Speak into the microphone, and your whole team can begin their search for the lost child.

Overall, when you’re in charge of special events, you need the reliability of a two-way radio to ensure that your event goes as smoothly as possible for both patrons and crew.
