The experiential agency has picked up ten new clients in 2010, which include Kraft, E.ON, Marks and Spencer and Best Buy.

Work has included Best Buy’s annual conference for 2,000 delegates in April at the NEC in Birmingham.

RPM managing director Dom Robertson forecast a 50% increase in turnover as a result and said the agency will add around six staff in the first quarter of 2011.

C&IT’s State of the Industry Report ranked RPM at number 23 last year, with a total turnover of £12.8m, including an events-based turnover of £4.6m. Pre-tax profits were £500,000.

Robertson said: "We expect profits to rise in sync with last year and we hope there is some good, natural growth. We are definitely going to remain focused in the corporate arena but move beyond conferencing into employee engagement."

Meanwhile, RPM was recognised at the Eventia Awards 2010 for delivering Sky’s annual Sky Ride and Wines of Rioja Fantastica for Phipps PR. 

RPM has remained on Diageo’s roster this year, as well as being appointed by Nissan.
