The new space, a custom-built suite in the same building as previously, has a much larger footprint with room for further growth.

The Indianapolis office is one of three US Ashfield Meetings & Events offices - the other two are located in Ivyland, Pennsylvania and San Bruno, California.

The events agency has had a successful year, including a win with pharmaceutical company Bayer, the launch of its Science for Meetings programme, and collaborating with BlueHat on the Future Focus leadership development game.
