Peder Berg, CEO and Co-Founder of Accredit Solutions is the latest individual to join the Venue Management Association, the peak body for venue industry professionals in Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. 

Accredit Solutions helps venue operators to improve operational efficiencies and safety by implementing smart accreditation systems that have processed accreditation for over six million workers, contractors and volunteers at sporting events, concerts and live events worldwide.

Borne in the United Kingdom 15 years ago, Accredit now employs staff around the world and has recently appointed an account manager in Melbourne to support a growing number of clients in the Asia Pacific region, including New Zealand Rugby, Cricket Australia and the Hong Kong 7s.

“With our platform, Accredit Solutions wants to support the VMA community giving them an efficient way to know exactly who is in their venue or event. Illegal workers, terrorist groups, fraudulent activity and increasingly, the Insider Threat, mean it has never been more important to ensure that only the right people are in the right spaces at the right times,” says Peder Berg.

The Accredit platform is being used in some of the world’s most famous sporting and entertainment venues, including those used by Arsenal FC, Manchester City FC, Chelsea FC, The Rugby Football Union, New Zealand Rugby, Hong Kong Sevens, Cricket Australia The Brit Awards, BAFTAS and the England and Wales Cricket Board.

If you don’t have the right systems in place, allowing staff and contractors to move around a venue efficiently, whilst countering the potential threat of criminal activities can be a labour Intensive challenge.

“We have recently had one client tell us that the Accredit platform has not only made their venue more secure, but has decreased the number of operational man hours spent on accreditation by up to 90%. I’m delighted to be welcomed into the VMA community, and I look forward to sharing our experience and knowledge with other members over the coming months,” added Berg.
