Over £4.5 million of client business was placed across venues and hotels for the financial year ending October 2016. The agency has forecasted £5.5 million in business across its leisure, venue, hotel and events departments by the end of this year.

To support the additional business, the agency has announced a number of changes to its staff. Sezanne Brown has recently joined the company as a venue finder, from her role as a meeting, events and hotel consultant as part of the Uniglobe Group.

Lizzie Thomas will be joining the live events team from the leisure team within Brief2Event, and event management graduate Zara Moradi has joined the venue finding team. Rachel Thorp joined Brief2Event last November as Head of Live Events from WMP Creative, to extend the agency’s event management capability.

The results underline Brief2Events’ growth in the meetings, events, accommodation and venue finding sector, in which it has specialised since 2005.

Since its launch, Brief2Event has expanded to work with clients in the retail, technology and association markets, with clients including Miele, Samsung and The IET.

Guy Mason, director at Brief2Event Solutions, said: "We are delighted with these results and our current progress. Last year was a really positive year for the company, and for all our staff. We have the utmost confidence in our team and are very much looking forward to the future, where we’ll be focusing on building relationships and extending our own brand of personal service to the market."
