Zaun Group has won the Physical Security Award 2015, presented by former England cricket captain Graham Gooch at the Major Events Summit in London.

Trade body Major Events International (MEI) has established the summit as what it plans to become an annual flagship event to showcase the expertise of its members and offer a peer to peer knowledge-sharing forum for the sector.

The summit takes place over two days, with day one covering safety, security and resilience and day two, venue technology and operations.

Gooch OBE – England’s second-highest ever runs scorer with 8,900 from 215 innings at an average of 42.58, with 20 tons and 46 fifties – made the presentation at an awards dinner on a middle evening. Zaun was joined by Saracens and England full-back Alex Goode at their table at the dinner.

Zaun joined MEI a year ago to extend its opportunities to supply temporary high-security fencing systems to major sporting events worldwide.

MEI has provided international business services and market penetration for more than eight years to companies who want to take advantage of Olympic and World Cup opportunities and win more business in major events.

It interfaces with the international mega sporting events market and can offer in-country early entry support, including proposal development, translation, sustained customer contact and market intelligence.

MEI boasts contacts and connections with the key players in the UK, Europe, Russia, Qatar, Brazil, USA, China, Japan and Australasia.

Zaun supplied temporary high-security fencing for last summer’s 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow and the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympics.

Zaun also provided the security fencing for the NATO Conference in South Wales a year ago; the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague in March 2014; the 2013 G8 Summit in Northern Ireland; and the 2013 Bilderberg conference The Grove in Watford.
