UKCMA Membership for ExcluSec

The UK Crowd Management Association (UKCMA) has officially recognised fast-growing North West company ExcluSec and has welcomed it to join a prestigious list of members.

The ExcluSec Group – which offers security, facilities and training services – has its head office in Bolton and sister bases in Manchester and Warrington.

Membership under the UKCMA cements ExcluSec’s meteoric rise in this vital industry sector.

The core aim of both the company and the UKCMA is to maintain and increase the standard of protection, security and care provided to crowds at all events throughout the UK. The company is also committed to raising the standard of security offered to visitors and staff at sensitive or complex locations.

Michelle Bancroft, Quality & Compliance Director at The ExclusSec Group, explained: “There is increased pressure on event organisers, venues and companies to offer extremely high levels of crowd management. Contemporary risks ensure that there is no room for complacency.

“This places a greater demand on companies like ExclusSec to stay ‘one step ahead’. Every individual member of our event security and crowd management teams has to be trained and ready to face any situation. Our performance must always be 100% professional.

“This made it a logical step for us to apply to become members of the UKCMA. Not least as it gives us a stronger voice in the events industry.”

Michelle added: “Part of taking our role and responsibilities seriously is to be at the forefront of developments in our sector.

“ExcluSec wants crowd management to continuously improve to tackle modern risks and challenges. We are committed to that internally, but membership under the UKCMA puts us in a position to influence these priorities on a national platform too.”

The UKCMA is the trade association representing the most advanced and professional companies in the crowd management industry. It is the voice of tens of thousands of security professionals who work in the UK’s massive events sector. The UKCMA also champions stringent training and disseminates best practice.

Michelle concluded: “Membership of the UKCMA follows on from a very exciting period in the Group’s history. We have been nominated for a whole raft of awards, including the prestigious Festival Supplier Awards.

“Our main impetus is the knowledge that groups of people in our care are kept safe, and have a positive experience when they visit events and sites. However, recognition on a national scale is certainly a great way to end a highly formative year for ExcluSec!”
