The successful trading period followed a series of business wins and a team expansion, with four new people joining the company in the past year. Producing events in 27 different countries, including new destinations such as Tokyo, Melbourne and Mumbai, the agency witnessed strong client retention, in addition to gaining new accounts. 

In a kick-off meeting for 2016, director Takis Kyprianou said: "2015 has been a great team effort. The year was full of exciting new destinations, new clients, continued trust from our loyal clients and we also welcomed new members to the Principal Family. We would not be here today sharing this news without the hard work of each and every one of our fantastic people. They are what defines the Principal brand and we are very happy to have them all on board."
