Agency MCI Group on track to achieve double-digit growth

MCI Group is on track to achieve double-digit growth this year, after announcing gross margin for the first half of 2015 was up 12% compared to the previous year.

Gross margin increased by £5.3m to £51m, following renewed focus on technical and digital services, which now represent 22% of total business.

After the integration of the group’s USA acquisitions in the first half of the year, the Americas region is expected to grow to represent 15% of total group revenues.

"The meetings and events industry is evolving rapidly, so we have invested strategically in our product portfolio and global reach to offer a strong client value proposition," said Sebastien Tondeur, CEO MCI Group. "The MCI teams globally keep learning from each other and always go the extra mile to achieve fantastic client results."
