As the live events industry continues to grow throughout the Middle East, one company that is keeping pace is JAM Event Services. Now in its sixth year of operations in the region, the trademark JAM high-vis jacket is becoming a ubiquitous sight on projects throughout the Middle East, with the company delivering its services to the likes of Sole DXB, the FIFA World Cup Opening and Closing Ceremonies, the Dubai Run & Ride, and Atlantis The Royal Grand Opening, to name just a few.
Now, JAM has restructured and increased its scope, with its two divisions – JAM Safety and JAM People – offering a one-stop shop for its loyal clients. “We all know that clients like to deal with as few companies as possible,” began JAM Founder and Managing Director, James Mistry, explaining the rationale behind the recent move. “By extending our offering and providing that single point of contact, we are servicing our clients’ needs directly.”
The new structure sees the company offer a range of services within its JAM Safety division, including event safety consultancy, crowd management, security management, film production health and safety, event control teams, training, occupational health and safety management systems, and venue services.
“It is everything we have already been doing, but with a few more specialisms added into the mix,” Mistry explained, drawing TPMEA’s attention to the film production health and safety vertical as an area that has been added in response to growing client demand.
JAM People, meanwhile, has three verticals within it – freelancers, permanent recruitment, and event staffing. “The expansion of our services is an opportunity for us to service the need that clients want to come to a one-stop shop for those specialist personnel requirements,” Mistry added. “Clients are comforted by the fact that they can satisfy their event professional and staffing needs using a company with a deep health and safety background that carries through in everything we do.”
