Step 3: Ask the Security Service to approve an event with alcohol.

To obtain authorization, inform about the event:

  • Date and time
  • Rooms reserved
  • Number of people attending

Make sure to let the Security Service know if the event is being held outside regular work hours (in the evening or on the weekend), or if a particular dignitary or public personality will be attending. In this case, email


Step 4: Use Eventbrite ticketing if it is a paid event.
