Showsec Delivers at Exhibition London’s First Music Event
On Saturday 8th February Showsec provided services to the first live music event held at West London’s new multi-purpose venue – Exhibition London.
This beautifully restored Grade 2 listed building, situated in the heart of White City and the Westfield development, provided the perfect intimate setting for nearly 2000 guests where leading Indie pop artists Catfish and the Bottlemen performed as part of the BRITs Week together with O2 For War Child 2020.
Sponsored by O2, the event series, now in its 6th year, is produced by AEG in partnership with War Child. This series of one-off gigs saw the biggest names in music perform at small venues across London between 8th and 22nd February, whilst raising money for children affected by the conflict of war.
As market leaders in security and crowd management Showsec worked closely with Exhibition London and managed the entire security provision for the event. With safety being paramount to the attendees, venue and performers, Showsec deployed a team to deliver high standards of customer service, providing security and stewarding services across the front of house, backstage and pit areas.
Exhibition London is a collaborative project from Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield and Broadwick Live and recently opened its doors in January 2020. It offers 3,185m2 of event space for music, celebrations, corporate and cultural events and will bring a new destination for culture to West London.
Showsec were delighted to be involved with this event and have a long history of working with Broadwick Live providing security and crowd management services at venues including Printworks London and The Drumsheds and also across the UK at a number of festivals in their portfolio.
It’s exciting to be working with a new venue and Showsec are looking forward to being involved with future events this year ensuring all security is delivered according to best practices.
