Showsec, the crowd management specialist, will play a key role in delivering the 177th Royal Highland Show in June when almost 190,000 will attend the event in Scotland.

Showsec has secured an initial one-year contract for the Royal Highland Show, but there is the potential for a three-year extension.

Scott Anderson, Showsec’s regional manager for the region, said: “The successful tender for the Royal Highland Show is a fantastic achievement for the Scottish regional operation of Showsec.

“As Scotland’s largest outdoor event, the Royal Highland Show has a long-standing reputation for excellence and quality.

“This is a great opportunity for us to build on our success in Scotland and provide crowd management expertise to help the Royal Highland Centre develop into Scotland’s premier event destination.”

Anderson will head up Showsec’s delivery of the RHS operation between June 22-25, 2017.
