Royal Ascot, viewed by over 650 Million households and arguably seen as one of the most prestigious sporting events in the calendar year was the setting for Wise Security at the 2018 meeting. 

Having undergone an in depth tendering process we were overjoyed in being chosen as one of a select few to supply expert Stewarding and Security Services.

The preparation, thought, time and effort put in from our Operations Team certainly put everyone to the test, but we can safely say that they done an amazing job and played an integral part in making the event a success! Transportation, Bookings, Uniform, Welfare, Online Inductions were just some of the logistical items implemented by our team ensuring for a smooth and well co-ordinated Service Delivery.

Over the course of the week we proudly greeted and safely looked after over 60,000 guests having been entrusted with an entire enclosure. It’s fair to say that our team of Managers, Response / Search Teams, Ticket Scanners and General Stewards done a truly amazing job in some blistering temperatures, having overseen all elements within the enclosure inclusive but not limited to the following: Bars, Track Side, Turnstiles, Crowd Flow, Ejections, Searching, Assisting Drugs Dogs, Music / Entertainment, DJ, Royal Visits.

Dan Frost (Event Manager) had this to say: “It was a real honour being involved in such a big event. I’ve watched the event on TV for a number of years and the settings and atmosphere always looks spectacular”! “Now, having been part of the event on the ground it is even more special and I thoroughly enjoyed my time overseeing this event. I would like to say a massive thank you to my trusted team, all whom done myself and the company extremely proud. Despite the warm weather and long days, everyone performed to extremely high standards something that I am truly grateful for! 

Having secured a long term working relationship we really look forward in playing a key part of Royal Ascots Team for many years to come.
