NEC Group boss says security is “our priority” following Manchester attack

The company operating the NEC has reassured customers that “public safety at our events is our priority” after the Manchester Arena attack.

The NEC Group emphasised it has “a number of security measures in place” which it continues to review at its venues, which include the ICC, NEC, Barclaycard Arena, Genting Arena, and the Vox Conference Centre.

The Manchester attack led to 22 deaths and many more injuries.

The group’s CEO, Paul Thandi, reminded those attending the venue “to report any suspicious activity to our security staff or police”.

“We don’t discuss specific security details as doing so is potentially detrimental to these measures, however, we do use a number of different security techniques,” he added.
