Thank you so much. You guys will be my first port of call for any security needs for future events that I’m running at TP.
Please thank your guys for their absolute professionalism and good humour throughout the night. Your team were integral to the smooth running of the event and the positive response we have received from the management at Tullett Prebon and our brokers and clients this morning is owed to them as part of a slick operation!

Just wanted to thank you for looking after Olly and Stacey at last week’s boat show. I will be in touch if we take Olly down to the Sunseeker factory, be great for you to come along too. Maybe sort something out later in the Spring after the tour?
Should be going to Glastonbury also, so no doubt see you there!
The recent WorldSkills London 2011 took over the entire 90,000m2 of floor space at ExCeL London making it the largest and most complex event ever to be held at the venue with nearly 200,000 people participating in the event over four days.
Gainsborough provided the security provision and demonstrated an exceptional level of service both during the planning stages and onsite. From assisting with preparing delegate bags to managing crowds no job was too big or too small and the team consistently delivered above and beyond what was expected of them. The staff were pleasant, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the event right across the board plus the consistency of the same staff at pitch stage, throughout the planning phase to delivering the event onsite made a huge difference and was a refreshing change.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Gainsborough to anyone who is looking for a professional service with a personal touch and complete peace of mind over the safety and security of the event and its visitors. I am looking forward to working with the team on future projects and would like to say a massive thank you on behalf of the WorldSkills London team for all their hard work and commitment
