The formation of MASA consolidates and strengthens our industry's response to the risk of terror attacks and other malicious risks. The UK event industry now has an over-arching security and counter-terror information framework providing a solid foundation for safer, more secure events now and in the future.


Meet the Chair and Vice Chair

MASA was conceived and created in recognition of our joint responsibility as an industry to bring people together in a place and keep them safe. This multi-association support and engagement will be essential to provide a central conduit for the timely dissemination of consistent security information, evolving legislation, advice and counter-terror updates, to the event industry.

Vice Chair - Paul Williams

Director of Safety, Security & Risk, The O2

Who is it for?

Membership of this group is made up of fifteen senior representatives from event industry associations.

MASA will meet quarterly, one month after its representative attends the latest Counter Terrorism Business Information Exchange (CTBIE) meeting, allowing it to evaluate how the latest information affects the event industry and provide specific advice and warnings to all sectors, regions and event types.
