Crowd management and event security specialist Showsec has been selected to be the leading supplier of venue security at London’s Wembley Arena.
The three-year contract will see Showsec run the front-of-house operation at the 12,500-capacity venue.
The new agreement will come into effect on 1 March and represents a further development following the company’s recent restructure of its London operation.
“We have run the backstage security at Wembley Arena for many years now, so we are delighted that we have been handed this opportunity to take on a more prominent role,” said director Simon Battersby. “It is testament to our commitment to achieving the highest possible standards across all aspects of our work that we have emerged successful from this tendering process.”
John Drury, GM of Wembley Arena, added: “We have enjoyed an excellent working relationship with Showsec backstage here. We look forward to building on that relationship front of house where we expect to see a continued rise in customer compliments for our FOH team.”
In other news, Showsec won the award for Best Security Company at the Event Production Awards at Earls Court, London, on 11 February.
