Clive wins “Best Event Management Company” at the 2019 Event Industry Awards

Guess what Clive fans, we’ve bagged an award for “Best Event Management Company” at the 2019 Event Industry Awards!

That’s right folks, Clive won big at the 2019 Event Industry Awards, taking home the most prestigious award of the night for “Best Event Management Company” in Ireland. The award ceremony, which was held at Dublin’s Citywest Hotel on Friday the 19th of July, celebrated the best of the best in the Event Management industry. In total, 27 awards were given out, and along with Frankie Sheehan’s award for “Outstanding Contribution to the Events Industry”, the Best Event Management Company category was one of the most coveted awards of the night.

We were up against some stiff competition but emerged as winners in a very tough category; with 7 event management agencies trying to win the highly coveted title of “Best Event Management Company” in Ireland. Commenting on the win Gavin Downes, Head of Strategy said:

It really is a great honour to be recognised for all the hard work, creativity, innovation and operational excellence we’ve delivered over the past yearAs an agency that is only 2 years old in Ireland, we are building something very special, we have a superb team, world class supplier partners and a client roster that we are extremely proud of. A massive thank you to all of them, the other agencies in our category, the judges and the extended team at Citywest for putting on such a great awards show.”

Our services already span the globe; however, these new hubs will continue to ensure accounts in the region are provided with improved services, closer working relationships and even more streamlined account management.

Commenting on the win for the Irish team, Jon Reid, Regional Director of Clive EMEA said:

This is a huge testament to the work of the Irish team, our Creative Studio and our extended partner network. We are really committed to building on the success of what the Irish Team has achieved in such a short time, while we continue to deliver exceptional work for our clients and diversify our service offering in Dublin, London and across the entire EMEA region.”
