McKenzie Arnold successfully completed the security and crowd management at London's first ever FIA electric single seater race weekend. McKenzie Arnold were on site covering the build, event and breakdown period for over three weeks.
The brief included managing the following areas;
McKenzie Arnold successfully fulfilled all its obligations to this assignment. We also added a new dimension to Carnival by developing a stewarding communications plan including representation in the event control procedure. This had not been done in previous years.
"I was met at the gate by a 'Disability Ambassador' who was very polite, he gave me a map of the site which was very useful, he also escorted us to a crossing point across the track and walked with us till we met up with the rest of group. Coming to events is often challenging for a disabled person so I was delighted that when I came to Battersea Park I had a really positive customer experience".
With the news that Donington Park has been taken over by the MSV group we have already seen some huge investments already including a new tarmac surface in the paddock. MAG is delighted to be associated with the MSV group and to continue its 15 year relationship with the Donington Park Circuit. The calendar for 2018 already looks busier than 2017, with the British Superbike Championship, British Touring Cars and World Superbikes Championship already solidly penned into the Diary.
Once again the McKenzie Arnold management team volunteered to attend the annual Presidents Sporting Club Christmas lunch for 600 disabled children. The team got there at 7am and joined the 50 other volunteers. Dean and Mo managed the car and coach park, Martin and Tracy Urand assisted with packing the goodie bags and decorating the venue. Martin Jackson said "It's a privilege to help with the running of the day, and its great for our team to give up their time at Christmas for such a great charity. its definitely the best event of the year".
