The Eventist Group, (formerly Best Parties Ever Ltd), has announced that its total revenue increased by 33% in the 2016/17 financial year.
The group turnover grew from just over £15m to over £20m last year.
The news follows a record season of 237 Christmas parties hosted by Best Parties Ever and more than 375 events which other brands in the group supplied for.
Group corporate catering brand Tapenade served 4,000 people at Farnborough Air Show, whilst Tobacco Dock Food delivered its first entirely vegan offering for the Lush Summit 2017, for over 3,000 people – one of the first industry caterers to do so.
Arribar!, the group’s bars and drinks specialists, and iELive, the company’s event technology arm, had a major presence at events up and down the country including the Henley Regatta and Red Hook Crit, providing operational support and enhancing the experience for guests with bars, lighting and AV.
The group expects this year to be even more successful with sales increasing for regional Christmas parties and confirmed business at a number of UK-wide festivals, shows, weddings, corporate events and sporting events, including a return to Glastonbury for Arribar!
Eventist Group MD Tim Stevens comments: “It has been an exciting time for Eventist Group since our re-launch last year and this year’s financial results prove how busy the whole team have been. This has fuelled our energy for the eventful spring/summer season ahead and we can’t wait to show people what we’re made of.”
