HGA has been selected by these brands to deliver a range of live experiences, digital, video and design projects.

The growth of the business has also continued at the start of the new financial year with further client wins including from existing clients Nationwide, Shop Direct and Travelodge.

Commenting on the agency’s growth, Dan Laurence, HGA’s managing director, said: "It’s been a combination of our determination to deliver on our mantra of ‘Challenging the Ordinary’ and the stand out creativity and service levels that our clients have come to expect from our teams. The results are already being translated into driving even further to become the live experience partner of choice for our clients and the employer of choice for the most exciting talent in the region.

"We’ve recruited a number of new colleagues already and are currently looking to add another four people; there has also been a great re-fit of our colleague social area at our Manchester offices and some major additions to our live experience resources such as new projectors, lighting and our transport fleet.

"The coming months will see us bring a more defined digital event technology offer to the market and we are developing additional services that will see our live experience offers become even more comprehensive. It’s a very exciting and rewarding time for this great agency."

The global lead on internal comms and engagement at pladis said: "HGA demonstrated our values of purpose-led , agile, collaborative, resilient and positive. Their ‘always on’, around the clock support and creativity was invaluable, helping to deliver a significant event in our history - one that exceeded expectations and which continues to have a positive impact on our global business. But more than this, HGA made it their business to get to know us as a business – and quickly - and it is a great example of collaborative agility."

Director of PR, Debenhams, added: "HGA hit the ground running and delivered a top-notch series of events for our colleagues. They helped foresee obstacles and their solutions ensured all events landed brilliantly.  Our colleagues were hugely engaged as a result of the events with a thorough understanding of our future strategy."

Director of communications, marketing and public affairs, The Hyde Group, commented: "HGA brought together the perfect combination of creativity with the ability to deliver on time and on budget. Our delegate feedback said it all: "Best conference ever!"
