Coventry security firm scoops top industry award
A Coventry security company is celebrating after scooping a prestigious national industry award for a highly successful 2019.
Stadium won the ‘Best Security Company’ award at the Event Production Awards, held in London in March.
The awards aim to recognise the very best suppliers to the major outdoor and live events industry.
Stadium was able to win the award thanks to its rapid progress in 2019 - including winning a contract to train senior safety officials in Qatar ahead of the FIFA World Cup in 2022.
Stadium’s founder David McAtamney was delighted the firm won an award in such an important category.
He said: “Stadium had a fantastic 2019 – we hugely increased our stock and variety of hostile vehicle mitigation barriers, meaning we could appeal to far more customers than ever before.
“Some of the events we installed HVM at included the ICC Cricket World Cup, NFL matches in London, the Fever Tree Tennis Championships, and the Godiva Music Festival in Coventry.
“We also won the contract to provide a bespoke training programme to safety officials and police in Qatar ahead of the FIFA World Cup in 2022, and trained around 1,300 learners in the country in the last year alone.
“We were so pleased the Event Production Awards recognised our achievements by crowning us ‘Best Security Company’ at the ceremony.
“We’re continuing to make great strides this year – we are now accredited by training body Lantra to teach traffic management courses, have attracted more clients for our range of services, and our training programme in Qatar is continuing in earnest.
“I’d like to thank all the team at Stadium for their amazing work over 2019 – we could not have won this award without them.”
Stadium’s win in the Event Production Awards capped off a successful award season for the firm.
Stadium were finalists in two categories in the Midlands Business Awards 2020, for two categories in the Outstanding Security Performance Awards 2020, the Coventry Telegraph Business Awards 2019, and the Amazon Growing Business Awards 2019.
