A major firm in Saudi Arabia is set to benefit from the expertise of a world-leading security company based in Coventry.
Local security company Stadium has recently signed a joint venture agreement with Saudi training company Bayt Alkhibrah to support the training of how to run large events safely and efficiently.
Stadium, who work with a string of Premier League clubs on security, safety and traffic management, will devise a bespoke training programme to teach its joint venture customers best practice.
Stadium employs 18 people locally at its head office in Coventry, and a further 984 people across the country.
Stadium’s founder David McAtamney was very pleased to have agreed on terms with the Saudi firm, and looked forward to starting the training programme soon.
He said: “It’s fantastic news about our partnership with Bayt Alkhibrah – they could have chosen companies closer to home to work with, but they’ve chosen us thanks to our great reputation in delivering international bespoke training programmes.
“Our tutors will help train our customers to not only keep crowds safe when working at events, but to make sure the visitor experience runs as smoothly as possible.
“While many countries rely on their police forces to operate security, their main priority is operating traffic management and policing.
“But Stadium’s methods ensure anyone attending large events, whether that’s a football match, a music concert or an outdoor market, have a great time as well as a safe time.
“Poorly-planned traffic and crowd management can ruin fans’ experiences. So we’ll be delivering the best ways to prevent this from happening while keeping crowd security at the forefront of their minds.
“We’re really looking forward to working with Bayt Alkhibrah, and we’re confident it will be the start of a mutually beneficial relationship between us.”
