Packed summer season of event security for G4S

G4S Secure Solutions (UK And Ireland) : 28 May, 2009  (Application Story)
High profile summer events in the UK such as Proms in the Park, the Wimbledon Championship and Epsom will be protected by the Events subsidiary of G4S
G4S Events is set for its busiest season to date, with a non-stop summer schedule of over 250 events. Predictions of good weather, coupled with a weaker pound, has meant that many Brits are planning to holiday at home this summer and the UK Events market is consequently anticipating a busy season.

In total, G4S Events will safeguard venues attended by over two million sports and music fans, as well as those attending arts and cultural festivals.

As the biggest provider of event stewards and security in the UK, G4S Events will be securing stadiums, open air parks, race courses and concert halls right across the country. From Stornaway to Swindon, from tennis tournaments to antiques fairs, G4S Events is providing services to some of the biggest and most high profile events in the UK's summer calendar including The Hebridean Celtic Festival, Radio 1's Big Weekend, The Championships at Wimbledon, OIAAF - Olympia International Arts & Antiques Fair, The Norwich Union Grand Prix, The Derby Festival, Epsom Downs, Proms in the Park, The Great Scottish Run, T in the Park, Fairford Airshow, The Open Golf, V Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fireworks.

In order to deliver services to such a large range of customers, approximately 4000 G4S staff will be deployed across the UK this summer to provide security and stewarding services.

Mark Hamilton, Managing Director, G4S Events, said: "Since the acquisition of Rocksteady by G4S last year, our events business has doubled in size to become the leading provider of security and stewarding services in Europe. The company is now fully integrated and employees and customers are seeing the benefits of new efficiencies and our expanded service offering."

"We are really excited about the breadth of events we are supporting this summer. We were protecting politicians in April at the G20, securing some of the world's biggest tennis players in June and arguably the world's biggest music stars in July and that is just a small part of our schedule. Protecting performers, VIPS and members of the audience and event attendees, G4S is committed to ensuring a safe and enjoyable experience."
