Event Security

Events come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, from some of the nation’s largest festivals to smaller private gatherings. Any type of event can have its own security issues that need dealing with by experts, so you will want a team with decades of experience in event security. 

Since 1983, ZED have been responsible for covering a vast array of events, from smaller exhibitions or corporate award ceremonies to some of the biggest concerts and expos in the East of England.
