The company, which recently completed a rebrand of the business and stopped using the Events by Appointment name, has an a office in New York for its Global Corporate Travel business, but handles US events business from its UK office.

It plans to recruit its first events employee in New York in the next couple of months and grow the team from there.

Sam Robson, group events director, The Appointment Group, said: "Whilst we currently manage the majority of the events for our US client base from our London Head Office, we plan to move this to locally based American offices in 2015. It’s now time to strategically activate an events team to service the growing requirements and logistics demands of our US client base,

"We have ambitious plans for our global event and logistics services and our continued investment demonstrates our commitment to expand our global network of experts providing clients with world-class events in any location".

Earlier this month, The Appointment Group expanded its Global Events division with several new senior hires in Manchester and announced it would offer destination management services for events taking place in the city.
