This follows the news that the agency appointed four new starters in recent months and moved to new larger offices in May.

C2events is an international healthcare event specialist founded in 2004 by Cheryl Clarke. Former Eventia Chairman, Mark Saxby, joined the business in 2015.

Five Hats, also an international healthcare event specialist, was founded by David Waldman in 2006 and has a number of global pharma clients. Five Hats employees are continuing as employees of C2events as part of the transaction.

Commenting on the move, Cheryl Clarke said: "With both companies being privately owned and well established in the healthcare events sector, the synergies between us were very apparent. One of the most striking factors has been the almost identical culture that we share. This has made working together with teams from each company very seamless. It also means that going forward all key client contacts will remain unchanged. This will ensure that we continue to deliver the exceptional service which clients of both companies have become accustomed to."

Executive director of C2events, Mark Saxby said, ‘The acquisition strengthens and broadens our existing event management capabilities and services in the healthcare sector. It is in line with our 5 year strategy for C2 as part of this we will be investing in additional resource and in key areas such as training and development, compliance, ToV reporting, IT and finance systems.’

Founder and managing director of Five Hats International, David Waldman said: "Having taken the business to this point, I am very happy to be handing it over to C2events.  I look forward to seeing the progress that I am certain will be made."
