Manchester based exhibition agency, Full Circle Events, has announced a record-breaking year of growth, with over 210 shows delivered and a 40% increase in revenue over the previous 12 months.
“Reaching this level of growth is a major achievement for a business that is only just 3 years old,” explained Simon Clifton, managing director, Full Circle Events. “It’s confirmation that our rising revenue targets for 2017 through to 2019 are highly achievable. 2016 has been a good year for us, particularly the latter half where we’ve delivered some great content including Handmade in Scotland, LAPADA, PAD and Food Matters Live.”
In 2016 Full Circle invested more than half a million pounds in vehicles, modular display equipment, electrical fittings, and opened a regional office in the Midlands, in addition to its Manchester HQ and London office, and is now well equipped to move forward with its plans for growth and expansion.
Clifton explained why he thought Full Circle was enjoying growth and success whilst the event industry as a whole has levelled off, saying, “We revel in delivering those challenging shows where creativity and an almost obsessive attention to detail are needed, and because we invest the time and energy into the show, alongside the organiser, we can deliver spectacular results. Although we’re often viewed as a full service supplier, we’re also enjoy a lot of success with our design and build customers, and more of them are coming to us, not just to design and build their activations, but to walk them through the whole exhibiting process. Our team have established our reputation as being decent, honest and approachable, and it’s vital that we can manage our growth without compromising this reputation.”
