I would like to thank you, on behalf of myself and the rest of the team, for your continued support and tireless efforts which have helped to make the 2013 Formula One Grand Prix such a great success. Setting the standard for future events and moving forward.
Head of Public Events, Silverstone.
I want you to know that the team here at Goodwood are hugely appreciative of your support, good humour and resilience when under fire.
Event Operations Director, Goodwood.
…. THANK YOU to you all for your tremendous hard work, help and support this year. Your guys are always on the front line and often bear the brunt of people’s anger from all sides and very rarely receive the praise you all most certainly deserve. Please don’t think it goes unnoticed or is not greatly appreciated because it most definitely is and without you we simply could not produce the event as well as we do.
Head of Production/ V Festival Organiser SJM.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you personally not only for the loyalty and commitment you and your onsite teams have dedicated to the show but also to me and the rest of the Hampton Court Team. It was a great year, with record attendance figures and a huge amount of positive feedback – something we couldn’t achieve without the brilliant teams we work with.
Deputy Operations Manager, Hampton Court Palace Flower Show.
… A massive thank you for providing such tremendous support yet again to the CLA Game Fair….Your staff are true ambassadors..
Head of Operations, CLA Game Fair.
…. With grateful thanks for all your help, advice and support this year
Show Manager, Royal Highland Show
The Show is only as good as the team that runs it and you and the whole SEP staff members who are involved with the Show are very important to us. Thank you for your support and the work that went in to ensuring we put on a quality Show.
Devon County Show Secretary
“If I had a pound for every person who suggested that we should build a new road around the village, I might just be able to pay for one; not that anyone who has received my tips on a regular basis is likely to give me a pound for anything.
So we went to “plan b” – and brought in the professionals. SEP Ltd have been helping the public to gain access to many of Britain’s busiest events since 1989 including: the Aintree Grand National, the Goodwood Festival of Speed, music festivals and this week’s Great Yorkshire Show. In addition to helping us devise a traffic management system which is sanctioned by the County Council, SEP Events design the appropriate road signage, set out thousands of road cones and provide staff for all the key positions including most of our car parks. They are the NASA of the car-parking universe.
SEP’s traffic management system involves the creation of dedicated one-way routes into the racecourse, which are reversed half way through the day to facilitate the get-away. In the meantime, we try to keep surrounding lanes available for local residents to negotiate their way around the village to continue with their normal business. So if you’re approaching the racecourse next week and think you know a short-cut, please help us to avoid gridlock by sticking to the signed routes and don’t rely on your sat-nave, especially if you’re driving a space shuttle or a horse drawn cart.”
Excerpt from the blog of Jonathan Garratt, Managing Director of Cartmel Racecourse.
"I have often heard it said that people attending the Show remember how easy it was to get in and particularly how easy it was to get out again: hence the car park teams see them first and last. I had a great many compliments paid with regard to the personable nature of the car park stewards employed by SEP and this in no small part made for a successful show."
The Chief Steward, Royal Highland Show, Edinburgh.
"The management team at SEP have successfully controlled the admissions and car parking arrangements at Aintree for over a decade. Their enthusiasm and commitment ensures the smooth running of, at times, a very demanding job."
MD - Aintree Racecourse.
"SEP are so reliable, cheerful and efficient that I cannot imagine running Badminton without them."
Hugh Thomas - Badminton Horse Trials.
"SJM Concerts have retained the services of SEP for the operation, manning and control of car parks at the annual V Festival and all our outdoor concerts for over a decade. The friendly, honest and efficient operation provided by the Company is illustrated by their continuing growing success."

"I am happy to recommend SEP to any event organiser. The Company has undertaken control of car parking for the Royal Norfolk Show ever since its inception. Their managers, together with the Show Stewards, form a formidable team which ensures that our car parks work efficiently even in the most adverse weather conditions."
Show Secretary - Royal Norfolk Show.
" The Great Yorkshire Show has, for many years, used the services of SEP. They have always provided excellent service, even in adverse weather conditions and their management teams are second to none."
