The latest appointment, which saw Kate Allsop join the finance team from Zibrant last week, is the full-service agency's fifth of 2016 and takes its workforce to 20.
The expansion is accompanied by a 30% increase in turnover year-on-year. The agency expects to turn over £4.5m this year, up from £3.5m last year, and forecasts to exceed £5m in 2017.
Absolute’s performance is boosted by a growth in international incentives, with the acquisition of new clients in the international banking, insurance and commerce sectors, and an increase in large international conferences with new clients in construction, law and professional services.
Finance executive Allsop will be responsible for all invoicing and event reconciliation.
Other recent new hires include James Goulder, who joined as new business development manager from the Scottish events management company ExecSpace, and Bethany Matthewson, who moved from Ashfield Meetings & Events to run Absolute’s new venue finding team as venues team manager.
Amy Spencer, also from Ashfield Meetings & Events, joined in the role of event manager and specialises in international incentives. Kirsten Sorensen took up her first job in events when she became part of the venues team.
Chris Parnham, managing director of Absolute Corporate Events and owner since 2013, said: "2016 is our most successful year yet, with some terrific new clients coming on-board and some of the freshest and most desirable talent in the industry joining the team.
"Having built on our very solid foundations of international venue sourcing and event management, we are now enjoying an enhanced pedigree including international incentives and live event production, forecasting our biggest order book in the company’s history. As always, our success is a credit to my team, who work so hard to make our events beautiful and memorable."
Last week, Absolute Corporate Events held its annual Partner Awards event at Parham’s home.
