Propyard was the winner of the ‘Events’ category and this is what the judges had to say about them…

“Cleverly transformed the former MOD torpedo testing warehouse to create big and bold experiences, from summer socials to art workshops, all the way to the outstanding Van Gogh Immersion.”

Airsec is proud to have partnered with Propyard since they opened keeping their venue and events safe for all walks of life to come and enjoy, from looking after 4000-capacity Boiler Room events right through to the Van Gough Immersive Experience and the Winterland Ice Rink together we have been there for it all and have enjoyed watching this business grow into what it is today. Since opening Propyard has benefitted from many of our services including Static Guards, Event Security, Door Supervisors, Dog Handlers, and Customer Welfare Staff.

Wake The Tiger received the ‘Tourism’ and ‘Platinum’ award making them the overall winner of the ceremony, this is what the judges had to say about them…

“Simply put, Wake the Tiger is a once-in-a-generation artistic masterpiece. Flair, imagination, ambition, reach, just stunning! 27 creative environments from 57 countries. Sustainable, disruptive, and daring beyond the impossible – very Bristol!” 

Similarly, Airsec has been in partnership with Wake The Tiger from the very beginning. They have had a member of our team on the door every day since opening, assisting with anything from First Aid and lost children to welfare for over intoxication and ejections. We have an excellent relationship with the venue and have provided Door Supervisors for events, Static Guards, and Alarm Response during our partnership.

“I know you shouldn’t have favorites in business but Wake The Tiger make this very difficult. The level of innovation and character this venue has is second to none and the team behind the scenes are absolutely spectacular.
