ACE Group was launched in October with Lex Butler’s new agency Wolf & White the first to join.

The aim of ACE Group is to enable smaller boutique agencies with complementary services to work together to pitch for larger events and contracts.

Parnham said of the new signing: "I have been considering for some time, a venue find partner who can tackle the high volume and fast delivery model of UK venue finding. This is in contrast to the service we provide to client’s at Absolute Corporate Events, which is based on creativity, high touch service and fewer, larger projects. 

"Now that we have Wolf & White providing market leading creative production, with a pedigree in top-end fashion events, Absolute Corporate Events providing event management and high end meeting services, and ExecSpace able to handle high volume venue finding, we can compete with some of the largest full-service agencies, whilst retaining the close attention and passion found only in the small agency world."

Emma Little, managing director of ExecSpace said: "I’m delighted that ExecSpace has signed this agreement to work closely with Absolute Corporate Events and Wolf & White to offer our services as a complete solution under the ACE Group. Our area of specialism is very much venue finding and this will allow us to work with other specialist agencies to deliver a full end-to-end service."

Parnham told C&IT that ExecSpace is the first of three new partners expected to sign up to ACE Group this year, which launched its website recently, and is holding its first board meeting as a group this month.
