ACT (National) Ltd is a professional health & safety consultancy operating across a wide range of events both in the UK and across the globe.
We provide Health & Safety solutions that are tailored to the client, their business, and their budget!
Health & Safety in the events world is viewed by some as an obstacle to creativity. We prove that this is not the case. We apply sensible and pragmatic solutions to every event we work on.
We believe that behind every great event there should be a professional safety team. We become part of those teams by providing top level strategic event safety consultancy for some of the world’s most prestigious sporting, music and regional events. Our focus is always the UK events market, but we have established great business relationships across the world, and we combine our global experience to reduce costs, enhance the service delivery, and therefore assist our clients to deliver the safest event possible.
A.C.T. provides support, advice and knowledge, enabling our clients to get on with their core tasks, confident that we will develop a complete safe system of work, that dovetails into the overall event management plan. We communicate and liaise with our clients and other stakeholders (emergency services, local authorities, etc.) to ensure safe plans are delivered at a strategic and operational level to everyone’s satisfaction.
A.C.T are proud to be futures sponsors with NOEA. This commitment has allowed A.C.T to be kept abreast of new developments within the industry and in turn enables us to provide the association, and its members, with up to date, relevant and affordable event safety services. Being a futures Sponsor has provided A.C.T with the opportunity to influence the Events Industry in improving safety standards across the board which sits high in the values of A.C.T.
Although the events we work on are wide and varied, and span the globe, we never forget our roots. The local village fete is equally as important to ACT, compared to the biggest sporting and cultural events on the planet. From our perspective, the principles of safety are the same, they just have to be applied in different ways.
See Tickets has become the latest event brand to partner with the National Outdoor Events Association (NOEA) through its Futures Programme. The partnership was announced today at the Event Production Show, and will see the ticketing brand join the three other stellar brands already part of the initiative.
As part of the Futures Programme, See Tickets is taking a proactive step to invest in the future of the outdoor events industry by supporting the initiatives implemented by NOEA. The leading event ticketing company will also join an Advisory Board, alongside the other supporters, that puts recommendations forward to the NOEA Council, to ensure the association continues to represent the industry’s growth and stability. On top of the futures initiative, See Tickets will also become official ticketing partner at NOEA’s Annual Convention and Awards showcase.
Already part of the elite Futures Programme are GL events UK, A.C.T (National) Ltd, and Arnold Clark, with See Tickets becoming the latest high profile addition. Commenting on the new partnership, Matt Evans, Commercial Manager, See Tickets, added: “As a business, we’re keen to support the outdoor events industry by working with NOEA. We’re big fans of education, recognition, and representation of our industry, across business and government, and are looking forward to helping out on these initiatives.”
Andy Grove, President of the National Outdoor Events Industry, added: “See Tickets are another great brand that have chosen to proactively support the outdoor events industry through the Futures Programme, and we couldn’t be more thankful. Not only are they commercially backing our long-term vision, they are also bringing with them a whole host of experience and expertise, which will be valuable assets in our mission to grow and professionalise the industry.”
The ABB FIA Formula E Championship is the electric street racing series and the world’s first fully-electric international single-seater category in motorsport. Formula E brings intense and unpredictable racing to some of the world’s most recognisable and progressive cities – including Hong Kong, Rome, Paris, Berlin and New York.
Formula E enters a new and exciting era in season five with the competitive debut of the next generation car. The striking new model boasts a distinctive futuristic design and demonstrates a clear step-up in performance with almost double the energy storage capacity – allowing teams and drivers to complete a full race distance at higher speeds without needing to swap cars. The Gen2 car is a testament to the ongoing advancements in battery and electric vehicle technology in the space of only four years.
The fifth edition of the ABB FIA Formula E Championship will see 11 teams and 22 drivers tackle a variety of challenging circuits in 12 cities across five continents in a bid to be crowned champion. Formula E will be making its debut in the Middle East on December 15 for the season-opener in Ad Diriyah, with the championship once again coming to a close in New York City over the course of two days on July 13 & 14.
The concept of Formula E is to act as a platform to test and develop road-relevant technologies, helping refine the design and functionality of components and infrastructure – actively speeding-up the transition and uptake of electric vehicles on a global scale.
Formula E is continuing to attract some of the leading names and renowned brands in motorsport and the automotive industry. For this season, Formula E has nine manufacturers on its roster – including Nissan – taking over the existing entry from Renault – and BMW linking-up with Andretti. This number is set to rise further still, with the highly-anticipated inclusion of Mercedes-Benz and Porsche in season six.
