Our Approach

AASE takes a local approach to our management of secure staffing and other services that we offer to our convention and conference clientele.

We are not some big conglomerate company with hundreds of offices that treat your event like any other with cookie-cutter formats and a management team only interested in their quarterly revenues versus the success of your event and the experience of your attendees.

We know that the AASE staff are sometimes the ONLY show management representatives some attendees may encounter and or interact with during their visit to your event and the convention center or hotel venue. AASE management makes it their mission to have our staff represent you and the venue in the most positive light.

Our Story

Every business has a beginning and ours was back in 2005 when the Orlando area and the Orange County Convention Center and surrounding hotel venues were growing and attracting visitors from around the world to Central Florida because of our theme parks and our attractions.

Our company was formed to provide a safe environment with welcoming greeters and informed staff to direct your attendees to various areas of the venue and to the area attractions to add enjoyment to their visit.

Meet the Team

Locally owned and not some mega-corp AASE becomes personally invested in the way we treat your event, the same way we run the company, like family!
