A recent testimonial we received from a

travel director:

"For over ten years I have had the pleasure of working with Karl de la Guerra, at locations throughout the United States.  He has led numerous conference security details in support of our meetings and conventions.  Anyone that works with Karl sees that he consistently demonstrates a high level of professionalism and assimilates extremely well into the corporate environment.  His alert attention to detail, ability to immediately respond to a variety of situations and his extensive operational experience is truly commendable." -

Conference Security Managers Course

Training our management staff truly sets us apart from others...

Six years ago, Karl developed a sixteen hour conference security managers course and presented it to a Fortune 100 company.  That program exists today through KDI and is administered to all Conference Security Managers fielded by KDI so they have knowledge of the unique environments of hotels, airports and  transportation.  They also learn to interact with hotel staff, DMC's, meeting planners and executive teams.

Conference Security Management

"We've worked with meeting planners around the world and we recognize that you're not in the security business.  We know that

when you're trying to plan a meeting, conference or convention, that you have your hands full with a variety of tasks placed upon you by the meeting host.  Security does not need to be one of those tasks that you have to handle alone.  Let us help you find, schedule and manage the security for your next event.  Our staff have over thirteen years of international experience working with meeting planners to ensure that the security for their meetings is impeccable.  You remain informed of everything your security team will do and we ensure that your hosts liability is protected."
