Event management agency, Top Banana, has been appointed to run Tuffnells Parcels Express’ 100th Anniversary event following a record January which saw the agency achieve 20 per cent of its projected turnover.
The agency says it has averaged three events per week so far this year and has welcomed a spate of new clients from sectors including beauty, premium luxury and pharmaceutical.
Top Banana says the boost in demand means it has increased its annual turnover projection (year ending March 2014) from £5.8m to £6.6m, with a 40 per cent increase in year-on-year client spend also predicted.
The news comes as longstanding client Tuffnells Parcels Express appointed the agency for its 100 year anniversary event, which is set to take place at Heart of England Conference and Events Centre in Warwickshire next month. The event is expected to attract 160 delegates.
“We’ve had a number of great wins already this year, with some ambitious events to look forward to,” says Top Banana’s MD Nick Terry. “Confidentiality precludes us from sharing a lot of our new, particular projects which are stock market sensitive, but these events are of significant strategic importance to the companies, which is great for us.”
Terry adds that Top Banana’s recent London office opening, which began last month, is well underway with 50 per cent of the office team now in place.
