Working in Parntership with Voyage Control

ETMS have now hooked-up with the clever people at Voyage Control. We believe the combination of our experience on the ground and their 'Smart' traffic management system, is going to make our service to the industy even better - and here's how...

‘Voyage Control’ is an on-line registration system enabling exhibitors and contractors to ‘book’ their vehicles into an event schedule themselves. Giving details of the event, venue, access points and details of tenancy dates and timings for each event, it is an easy to use self-booking system. Vehicle Access Passes and reporting instructions can be downloaded and printed, thereby pre-authorising direct access to the site. This is proven to save considerable time and mileage, improve turnaround and measurably reduce the carbon footprint of any event.

RHS contracts 'Blossom'

ETMS have managed the traffic at The Royal Horticultural Society's Hampton Court Flower since it 'sprung to life' some 23 years ago. From that 'shoot' came The Chelsea Flower Show in which the company has also been 'rooted' for the past 16 years. In 2013, a further 'branch' will be added in the form of The RHS's Flower Show at Tatton Park in Cheshire.

The RHS have recently formalised the relationship by contracting ETMS for all three events. On concluding the contract, MD Gerry Kilsby said," This formalisation with the RHS demonstrates how both good service and commitment to client relationships pays off ". "We have worked very closely over the years with our 'friends' at the RHS's Show Team to fine tune the management of these three major and prestigious events". He concluded, "Our team - especially Steve Howe - deserve great credit for where we are today"

ETMS take to the highway!

Exhibition Traffic Management Services announce the launch of a new Highways Traffic Management Division.

Headed up by Martin Metcalfe, formerly Traffic Manager with public works highways facilities contractors Ringway Jacobs and supported by Stuart Sharp, former executive consultant to TfL, the new service will provide event and festival organisers with a comprehensive range of services including project management, liaison with Local Authorities, traffic management plans and applications, CAD drawings, road closures and the provision of ‘TM’ equipment and signage.

“Managing traffic on the public highway is a very different discipline to an event or exhibition site and can be a daunting prospect to the inexperienced”, said MD Gerry Kilsby. He continued, “Martin’s experience and Stuart’s specialist knowledge will be invaluable to many existing and potential clients who have need of support in this area. We aim to develop this natural extension to our core business to both the events industry itself, public works and local authority contracting sector”

Olympia contract signed

Olympia has announced the appointment of Exhibition Traffic Management Services (ETMS) as its official marshalling contractor as of 1 January 2011. As part of the contract ETMS will provide year-round parking and marshalling services for Olympia’s customers, contractors and exhibitors.

ETMS boasts a longstanding relationship with EC&O having served as traffic marshalling partner at Earls Court from 2007 to 2014.

The announcement coincides with the Borough of Hammersmith and Fulham’s decision to grant planning consent for Olympia’s £20m redevelopment project which will begin work in early 2011.

Rachel Parker, Halls Director, EC&O Venues said: “We have been in partnership with ETMS for four years at Earls Court and we are delighted with the way they have integrated into our company. Feedback from our customers has been excellent. Following the exciting news regarding the West Hall development it is imperative that we manage and control the traffic effectively particularly during the construction phase. For this reason we have decided to mirror the arrangements at Earls Court and appoint ETMS.”
