International SOS and Control Risks advise clients in Thailand

03 December 2013 ,  —


Medical and travel security experts working for International SOS and Control Risks are working to support clients in Thailand, as public protests continue in Bangkok.

Teams are able to provide advice and reassurance to over 2,500 travellers in Bangkok who are working for organisations with operations in Thailand.


Alex McSporran, Regional Security Manager, said: “Our clients are starting to come to us with requests for information.  We work with them on an ongoing basis to plan and prepare for events such as public protests and any impact these may have on business continuity.

We are liaising directly with our contacts and providers on the ground as these demonstrations continue. We will provide regular updates to our members who can contact us at any time if they have any concerns.”


The International SOS and Control Risks alliance brings together the extensive global network and expertise of both companies.
