HGA Creative managing director Michael Henderson told C&IT: "We will be addressing areas of the events market that we have previously been cautious of entering. Our strategy is to focus on the softer side of event production and promote our audio visual services, for example.

"We have religiously worked in the corporate conference market, but recently we delivered a heavily themed staff party, which previously we would have shied away from. We are now looking at 20% growth across the business in 2014. This follows the growth of our video division, which has doubled in size in one year."

This follows the news that HGA Creative experienced record-breaking sales of £2.5m for its financial year to 1 June 2014, while it also made a series of new appointments last month.

HGA Creative recently delivered a staff party for Dr Oetker in a marquee in the Yorkshire Dales. Other clients inlclude Lloyds Banking Group, Santander and Shop Direct.
