Planning a corporate event is an exciting but demanding task. It is a chance to highlight your business and achieve dramatic results. Whether a seminar, conference, retreat, or product launch, planning your own event can leave details overlooked, or possibilities missed. So, rather than attempting to coordinate your event or leaving untouched potential, consider hiring someone who can organize an event that exceeds expectations.
Event agencies are your ticket to a quality event. They know the market, the services you need, and are experts in their locales. A strong agency has the ability to make the event wildly successful and let you focus on the tasks that matter most to your corporation. And fortunately, London has no shortage of high-quality agencies.
The 5 Best Event Agencies in London
Picking an event agency can seem nearly as stressful as planning the event yourself. There’s the looming threat that something vital will be missed and the event’s success is all but lost. To shed this fear and help with your planning, here are the five top agencies in London and some of the awesome events they’ve hosted.
1. Jack Morton Worldwide
As the digital world continues to accelerate, Jack Morton Worldwide has moved to the forefront of event planning by harnessing the power live experiences still have. They pride themselves on highlighting the touch points of your corporation’s vision and mission, making your success their goal.
Managing over $500 million annually, and winning 88 global awards over the past two years, it is obvious the company knows how to host events. Having worked with big names like Google, Samsung, and IBM, you can rest assured they can meet the needs of your corporation.
In 2017, Reebok hired Jack Morton Worldwide to demonstrate their products and innovations to retailers. To do this, Reebok took residence at the W Hotel in Barcelona for a full week, where they provided guests with a 90-minute live brand experience show, brand galleries, product showcases, innovation and design rooms, as well as fitness events and parties in the evenings.
Results blew expectations out of the water with almost 700% more interactions over the initial goal. Additionally, over 20 retailers inquired with Reebok over what they had witnessed during the week, proving Jack Morton Worldwide could host world-class events that generate positive results.
2. BCD Meetings and Events
BCD Meetings and Events is an agency set on providing a flawless experience for your corporation and brand.
BCD takes a special interest in ensuring the planning, design, budgeting, and logistics are managed to the smallest detail, making your event to run without issue. Their creative planning team is comprised of veterans from the industry and can breathe life into whatever event you need.
BCD hosted a product launch for Lenovo with the goal of conducting a “live” launch that implemented streaming and active social channels. To meet their lofty goals, BCD worked with Lenovo to create a full communications strategy and used full LED and moving walls to create a complete brand immersion for guests.
To further engage the crowd, they created “shareable moments” for people to interact live and on social platforms, increasing the hype and awareness of new products. Overall, the event was a success, and Lenovo’s launch won the Gold Sabre Award for best Trade Show of 2016.
3. Touch Associates
Just as their website claims, Touch Associates is a true architect of audience engagement. The Sunday Times awarded them 33rd in their Fast Track 100 for 2017, and they’ve continued to grow from there.
The company focuses on the storytelling of your brand to help you create live events that surpass expectations. They engage through emotions and can create memories that your guests will remember for years to come.
When Amadeus, a respected hospitality company, wished to execute a two-day leadership conference, they partnered with Touch Associates to make it happen.
The event took months of planning and included a full day of rehearsals for the speakers and panels. When the panel kicked off, the audience was 400-members strong and included leaders from around the world.
Through the social channels and within their company, the conference became the most talked about event Amadeus had ever executed.
Smyle lives up to its name by designing events that are bold, enjoyable, and inspiring. They “fuse creativity with technology” to produce award-winning events that meet the goals of their clients.
Smyle has one of the most dramatic portfolios for different event types. They’ve planned everything from high-profile dinners, to ship christenings, to concerts. No matter what type of event you’re interested in hosting, there’s a good chance Smyle can surpass expectations.
In 2013, Smyle had already earned a spot at the top of the event agency listing. This is evident in their selection to plan the 9th Annual World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF) for its first gathering outside of Asia.
The event was hosted at ExCeL London and included 19 world leaders. Coordinations required police to close roads, enabled staff to register over 3,000 attendees in one hour, and facilitated a 1,500 person meal with Prince Charles as the guest of honor. Smyle was commended for their attention to detail and an event lauded as the best in the series.
Clive is an agency that focuses on communication and how they can spread your message throughout whatever event you host. They aim to bring out your unique personality while achieving positive results, no matter how demanding they may be.
Serving companies in telecommunications, automotive, media, technology, and more, Clive’s creative event teams have produced revered events that demonstrate the true potential an agency can provide.
Clive was tasked to provide a breath-taking awards ceremony honoring 350 Virgin Media Business employees, and to do it with style.
To meet client expectations, Clive effectively reworked the lighting of the Monastery in Manchester before putting on a show they titled, “Cirque du Sparkle.” The show blended the beauty of the venue with the edginess of Virgin Media.
Attendees were able to feast while enjoying the show and left the event excited to be part of their corporation.
