The move from the current offices near Barons Court station follows AOK Events' acquisition of Cavendish Hospitality and Events in November. In total, 23 employees from AOK Events and three staff members from Cavendish will be moving to the new offices, which have capacity for up to 45 people.

"2015 was a landmark year for AOK Events with us adding 11 new staff members, including non-executive chairman Mike Kershaw, marketing manager Anna Hernandez and the team from Cavendish Consultancy, who we acquired," explained CEO Alex Hewitt. "We will be able to house up to 45 members of staff there in the future and all of our current employees will hopefully appreciate the increased space, the air conditioning, the meeting rooms and the roof terrace. We are investing a large amount of money in creating fantastic offices, which demonstrates our very ambitious plans for growth moving forwards."
