BitF Committee: Flow Producer

Flow Pod Description 

Flow is responsible for the flow of vehicles and participants in and out of the event. They manage and set up gate, parking and placement stations, and mark the roads needed for access throughout the site, and for safety. Flow is responsible for the final stage of the event mapping process: translating the map into real life on the event grounds, which is crucial for everyone’s setup. Flow also manages all BitF onsite signage, as well as signage leading into the event, and is responsible for coordinating services and camping placement for differently abled participants and those with medical needs. It’s also the Flow group’s responsibility to manage accessibility within the site. As such, Flow is also responsible for managing accessibility and medical needs such as power for devices such as sleep apnea machines.
