The Blackbird team was unbelievably helpful and professional at our company’s event. The team showed up every single time sharp and ready to tackle any tasks assigned to them. Everything was simple and organized. They lead you through the whole process so you understand what services they are providing you as well as what you need from them and how they are going to deliver it. Thank you Blackbird and Ranko for the best experience.Event Coordinator at ParkWest Living in North Vancouver
Have been using Blackbird Security services for over 4 years at an average of 150 events per year (non-covid shutdown). Events range from formal galas to sold out concerts involving full bag check/pat downs and venue ejections. I have found Blackbird Security to be far more reliable and responsive than other security services that I have used in the past. Staff have good customer service skills and are always courteous and good at de-escalation when needed. If you are looking for reliability and peace of mind at your event or business, this is the company to use!Faculty of Pharmacy Event Organizer at UBC in Vancouver
It was a pleasure having Blackbird Security on board with our event this year. Our Pharmacy Skits Night welcomes 500-600 students and faculty each year and is held in a large venue. From the feedback I've received from our attendees, all the guards were respectful and attentive to the crowd. We look forward to continuing to work together in the future and do not hesitate to recommend the company to colleagues.Theatre Manager, Bell Performing Arts Centre
I hired Blackbird Security several times for suit and tie client events, special open houses and for concierge services. Their security guards were all presentable and professional. Dealing with Black bird has been a pleasure and I will continue to use their security services. Their security training is excellent and their employees are all great to deal with. Blackbird is a fantastic security company.Century 21 and the Aziz Group
Blackbird Security gets 2 thumbs up from me and my family. We unfortunately lost my Dad suddenly last year, and because of the COVID regulations planning a funeral was harder (than normal). We hired Blackbird to help maintain social distancing between guests, contact tracing, and to make sure masks & sanitizer were available for everyone during our outside Celebration of Life for our Dad. Thank you Blackbird for helping us celebrate my Father's life safely. My family appreciated your hard work.
We had a small private event and needed suit and tie security. Brett and his team did an excellent job. Good professional company, will use them again.
I wouldn't trust any other company than Blackbird to take the stress off of event hosting.
Great service at a recent event we held at our residence. Security guard stayed longer than our hired time slot to ensure the property was secured.

If your current security provider doesn’t offer this level of training, perhaps it’s time to upgrade.
