Global Elite Group (GEG) meets the security demand of providing management services for sporting venues and events. Large events bring value to a local government and their economy but the responsibility is great for keeping participants safe. Sports attract worldwide attention providing an attractive target for malicious motives. Security planning is a key component to ensure memory of the event is about the event.
There is an increased need for protection due to the heightened awareness of potential threats and dangers at gatherings that may be held at a high profile location or a sporting event that will draw huge crowds. Security is now on the forefront of today’s event organizer as each terror incident at a mall, movie theater or towards sports spectators exposes the need for better preparations. All of this alerts us to the new potential risks that need to be planned for. Global Elite Group has added new security programs to complement services provided to corporations and government agencies. “Our core services have expanded to provide advanced screening technology, surveillance tools and management opportunities for clients to take advantage of when it comes to deploying proven security practices,” stated William McGuire, President and CEO of New York-based Global Elite Group.
