About Us

We’re a global live events agency with teams in London, Dublin and New York. We’re dedicated to helping companies communicate through creative-led experiences. 

We work with some of the world’s leading brands to gain a deep understanding of their audiences and communications goals. We uncover the perceptions they want to create or change, the emotions they want to evoke and ultimately the action they want their audience to take. We use this knowledge to create truly bespoke, engaging live communication events that get results for our clients. Whatever the nature of your business, however straightforward or complex your objectives, we can help you communicate and bring your brand messages to life through creative live events.

The world is changing.

Driven by factors like current climate, market uncertainty, sustainability efforts and marketing goals, businesses and communities are adapting. It’s more important than ever to connect and engage with your audience, through authentic human experiences. To do this you must first understand each individual before you can deliver the same brand experience, that’s unique to many.

It’s our focus on the collective individual that makes our brand experiences so powerful. Whether the goal is training and educating or conveying a message for your brand, nothing is more effective in creating lasting impact, than the self-discovery of information. Now, the tools and techniques that were often seen as ways to enhance and amplify a live event, are taking centre stage.

Interactive content sessions, online communities, experiential installations, AR, VR and new technology experiences are just some of the tools we use to ensure our clients’ messages are brought to life and understood.

We understand every business has their own challenge. B2B or B2C. Internal or external. Physical or digital.

Sometimes we create communications events, hospitality experiences or exhibitions to help B2B marketing teams generate leads or change the way customers think. Other times, for B2C companies, we produce experiential activations, stunts and roadshows to bring a product to life, build a buzz and create a new army of brand advocates.

Some clients come to us for our remote and virtual capabilities in order to stand out from the crowd or produce sustainable experiences. Others simply want us for our creative production or event management expertise to ensure a smooth, enjoyable experience for guests. 

We can work with internal comms teams on employer branding, motivation, engagement and talent retention – or even with sales teams on an exciting incentive travel programme that improves business performance.

Our Values

Constantly Inquisitive

We’re never afraid to ask the important questions that help us truly understand our clients’ brand, business, audience and objectives. This research provides us with invaluable insight, which we use to make sure our solutions not only deliver, but exceed objectives.

Always Creative

It’s our mission to always deliver original and effective ideas to bring brands to life. But we know that great ideas don’t just happen by accident. That’s why we’ve developed a culture of research, imagination and invention that puts our team at the forefront of innovation.

Great at Relationships

We work in a people business where relationships are key to success. We pride ourselves in having long-standing relationships with clients, working in partnership on multiple projects and acting as an extension to their team. By immersing ourselves in their culture and values, we can truly bring our clients’ messages to life.

Operationally Excellent

Great ideas alone are not enough; they need to be delivered seamlessly. Our Operations Team is amongst the most experienced and professional in the business. Ask any of our clients why they come back time after time, and they’ll say it’s because they can always trust us to deliver on time, on goal and on budget.

Serious Fun

We’re a young, passionate and committed team with real ambition and energy. It’s an infectious energy that shines through the projects we deliver and ultimately makes your audiences’ experiences warmer and more memorable.
