We also manage temporary staffing agencies, provide risk assessments, hire and manage emergency medical services, executive protection/security escorts, safe rental, mobility scooter management, sessions on convention management, develop crisis management plans for show site and provide exhibit hall floor managers.

We will develop the pre-show plans needed for the area you assign us to manage and then interview, evaluate and hire the local security companies, temp agencies and/or TNT Event Managers needed to fulfill the plan and execute the plan on site.

We will also provide post-show reports to summarize our support and offer suggestions for your next event.
