What Clients have said about us;

 “Steve was Event Safety, Security and Crowd Management Manager and a central member of the TdF Hub Team for the Tour de France 2014. His professionalism and expertise were a major asset to delivering this event.”

 James Tibbetts, Event Director TdFHub 2014

“The work that was conducted on the 2015 event then opened the door for Face to work with the City to move the footprint to the heart of the City for 2016, with a profile footprint, 20,000 spectators, with the integration of stakeholders including the City of London, City of London Police, TFL and LAS,were key to the successful and on the day delivery.

Awen’s ability to integrate very complex events into already complex environments regarding both safety and security is recognised by ourselves, the City and City of London Police, which has allowed us to secure the event for a further 3 years. There is no doubt that the work that was undertaken by Awen UK proved to be vital within this decision."
