EIGHT PR & Marketing will focus on the full spectrum of the events industry, from business events to festivals.

Turner said: "The key tenets of EIGHT are intelligence, creativity and what we’re calling ‘The Club’. Intelligence comes from the knowledge and experience we’ve picked up over the last 15 years in the industry. This is then adapted creatively to develop campaigns that make a measurable impact on our clients' businesses.

"Finally, we’re creating a club around our clients, and will encourage organisations who can add value to their businesses to join so that everyone can share knowledge, interact and do business together through EIGHT, it should be fun."
