Butterfield and Brown both served in management and director positions in the former AlliedPRA UK operations, which recently transitioned its European business from a consolidated company-owned model to a strategic alliance position.
"With the closure of the AlliedPRA UK office there was noticeable gap in the marketplace, making the launch of 2B UK perfect timing for this incredible opportunity to continue providing outstanding DMC services to our valued client base," commented Brown.
"We are delighted that a large number of our overseas and UK clients are already working with 2B UK while we carry on a strong working relationship with AlliedPRA in North America."
Butterfield added: "Both Jeremy and I have extensive agency and DMC experience which gives us a keen understanding of what makes a great DMC.
"We are thrilled to be up and running with a strong pipeline of business already in place for 2015 and beyond and look forward to much success in the future as the go-to DMC in London."
2B UK Destination Management Services offers the full spectrum of destination programme needs ranging from meetings, incentives, congresses and product launches, and offering services including transportation, teambuilding, sightseeing tours, special event coordination and site selection across the UK.
