Event Security and Site Protection

The executive protection experts at IMG believe that the most fundamental component of event security is the inclusion of security personnel early on in the event planning process. Although it may not be apparent, security has a role to play in many aspects of event planning. Some of these aspects include: venue selection, the guest lists and invitations, ID badge selection, floor space design and allocation and of course, contingency planning and emergency response.

Involving security early on in the process can also make event planning and execution significantly easier. For example, if a security threat assessment determines that further resources are required, it is better to know this earlier rather than later. Additionally, including security early on in the event planning process can also help limit the number of last minute changes and challenges, smoothing the execution of the operation as a whole.
