The boutique with big ambitions
Why? The boutique agency made headlines over the summer after winning a competitive pitch to deliver law firm Clifford Chance's global events programme.
The lowdown: Clifford Chance's appointment of Eventful came as a surprise to many, as the law firm chose the small agency over incumbent Zibrant and other larger players.
The Wimbledon-based agency, set up in 2002 by managing director Caroline Lumgair-Georges, also works with Ralph Lauren, among other international clients. It has grown from a team of three to eight in the last 18 months, and its recent big win, along with impressive profit growth from £40k in 2012 to £130k in 2013, makes its place on C&IT's one to watch list well deserved.
What they say: Caroline Lumgair-Georges, managing director, Eventful: "We worked really hard during the recession to network and produce great events on small budgets and now we are coming out of that period, the hard work is paying off: 2014 looks to be our best financial year yet."
