The new office has been designed to reflect the style of the UK headquarters, incorporating both the Ashfield Meetings & Events and SPARK THINKING brands. Using the space to promote collaboration and creative thinking, the US office will take the UK’s lead and encourage the senior team into the main office space.

The move follows a string of new client wins and the expansion of the creative and production teams.

Gavin Houston, CEO Americas, said: "We had simply outgrown our office space and so we utilised the opportunity to create something engaging for our employees. It was important that the space reflected both brands but remained true to the heritage business. We haven’t moved far from the Ashfield divisional business, in fact we still share the same car park. I hope having our own space will give our employees the feeling of growth and will encourage development and fresh thinking amongst them all."

He added: "We had a fantastic grand opening on Friday 4 March but now it’s time to get to grips with the new space and start back to work in our wonderful new office."
