What's the lowdown?

Set up in 1988, Zibrant now places more than 25,000 events annually in more than 50 countries and employs 200 staff predominantly in the UK, Ireland and France with strategically placed global representatives. It's services include venue-finding, event production, event and incentive management and hotel booking services.

Zibrant operates independently as part of Motivcom, an AIM-listed UK business services group offering marketing communications, event management and incentive expertise to corporate clients.

Zibrant's managing director is Fay Sharpe and its chairman is Nigel Cooper.

Why shine the light?

Zibrant recently posted a 9% boost in operating profit following investments, new clients wins and repeat business from corporates including BG Group. 

It has also introduced Virtual Payment Cards to its business process outsourced proposition. The vCards facilitate quicker transactions for clients who use Zibrant for the procurement of their events, accommodation and other services associated with live event production. 

Zibrant is currently looking to recruit two business development managers. One role will focus on developing the company's accommodation division and the second role will look for new business opportunities with clients that require an event management, incentive, production and AV service.

It has also been ranked at number 87 in the Sunday Times Best 100 Companies to Work for 2012.

Client work

Zibrant recently ran an incentive in Dubai and Capri for Elavon Merchant Services. It has also worked with Barclays Bank for more than 20 years, sourcing venues for their L&D courses and delivering a range of events. Other clients that Zibrant has worked with include Pzifer, Shell, BMW, Boehringer Ingelheim and Centrica Energy.
