You may think your special event won't attract protests. In this increasingly political age, though, more people are willing to physically gather to voice their thoughts about people, nonprofit organizations and special interest groups that are even just loosely connected to a political cause. In fact, a Washington Post poll found that 1 in 5 Americans have participated in some sort of political rally or protest since 2016.
Reducing Risks From Protestors
Your special event doesn't even have to be promoting a controversial cause; perhaps one of your guests or attendees has attracted attention on a recent issue. That could be enough to draw protesters. (Just one example from this year: Crowds gathered outside an international auto show's charity preview event to protest one automaker's decision to close local plants.) In today's political climate, it's clear that you simply can't take a chance with security at your upcoming event.
GSS Security Services, Inc., is your answer for discreet, professional security. Should the need arise, we'll be there to protect your patrons, just like we do at hundreds of corporate events, galas, private parties and award shows throughout the country. In addition to preventing potential problems with protesters, we reduce the risk of "gate crashers" and work to make sure your guests and their personal belongings are safe throughout the event. Conflicts between guests can be handled quickly and quietly to prevent distractions that take others' eyes off the main fundraising event or celebration.
