The client

The Abu Dhabi Motor Sports Management Company, UAE - For The AD Formula 1.

The brief

In 2010, the Abu Dhabi Motor Sports Management Company and the Event Security Council of Abu Dhabi called on EAS to rescue the accreditation project for the 2010 Abu Dhabi Formula 1 Grand Prix mid project. EAS was given just five weeks to implement its Accredit Solution and roll it out to the tens of thousands of stakeholders who needed to be vetted before being granted access to the track for the start of the race.

The outcome

EAS jumped into gear and delivered the system and production on time, accrediting more than 20,000 visitors in three weeks. For the 2011, 2012 and 2013 races, EAS was hired at the start of the project to work along side the ADMM and the ESC for the entire accreditation project. In this capacity, EAS worked side by side with the organisers and security teams at the Yas Marina Circuit for more than five months each year and through the race itself.

The team at EAS introduced speed and efficiency when they completely overhauled our systems using their unique Accredit programme. Accredit’s multi-lingual capabilities are invaluable to us, and this year, along with a range of new features, they are introducing electronic sign out. EAS is now an integral part of the Yasmarina Circuit team with EAS staff based at the track for six months of the year.
