International Sports Event Management and Security (ISEMS) 2007, the new super event for sports event management and security, has signed partnership deals with two world-renowned companies as momentum builds ahead of the opening on October 31.
Cleanevent and Infostrada Sports have become Silver Partners of the two-day event at Wembley stadium which will become the premier meeting place for the cream of the world's sports governing bodies, rights owners, event management experts and specialist service companies.
More partnerships announcements are expected shortly as organizers complete their audit of applicants.
Cleanevent has provided cleaning and waste management services to many of the world's major sports events including two summer Olympic Games. The company has taken the provision of cleaning services to new levels through the use of sophisticated procedures and technology. The company has hundreds of clients and offices around the world.
Infostrada Sports has developed a reputation as a leading provider of sports information, news and statistics to many companies worldwide. The company has strong links with many major events like the Commonwealth Games, the World Championships Swimming and the Olympic Games and recently provided a one-stop dedicated news service for the 15th Asian Games in Doha, Qatar, last year.
"We are delighted to welcome Cleanevent and Infostrada as partners of ISEMS 2007", said Nigel Rushman, managing director of organizers Rushmans.
"These are two companies which embody the professionalism demanded by the sports events industry today. Both operate at the highest level and both are clear leaders in their respective fields.
"Their involvement in the event is a clear endorsement of the value which ISEMS '07 delivers to companies operating in this sector."
Craig Lovett, Executive Director and founder of Cleanevent Group, said: "ISEMS is the event the sector has been crying out for years and we are proud to play a part of its success. ISEMS is the ultimate showcase for an industry which is becoming increasingly important as sports events become more socially and politically significant."
Philip Hennemann, CEO of Infostrada Sports said: "We are delighted to be a partner of an event which will help set the pace and direction of a fast-moving sector in which new standards are being set and lessons learned with almost every completed event.
ISEMS, which has been developed in conjunction with leading industry figures, is set to be the most comprehensive and valuable event ever staged for the sector. It will deliver multiple networking opportunities, a major exhibition and conference and seminar streams focusing on event planning and management, security, marketing and the media.
Nigel Rushman said: "Over the last five years we have worked with the industry to share and develop events which deliver first class content and excellent value. This is reflected in International Sports Event Management & Security which will be the must-attend event of 2007 for all those involved in planning and staging sports events.
"No other industry event has such a broad attendance of top executives and focuses on the key issues around event management and security with such authority and clarity and no other event will feature such a stellar line-up of speakers and presenters who have each made a significant contribution to innovation and best practice in event management, security and event promotion."
ISEMS has been developed for, and will be attended by, representatives of national and international sports governing bodies, specialist event management companies, local authorities, stadium and facility owners and operators, media companies, sports marketing agencies, police and intelligence services and the companies which provide the technology, infrastructure and services which make events tick.
