The Lab, now in its fifth year, is an interactive event for UK staff, dedicated to delivering continued professional development, building supplier partnerships and driving creativity. 

This year the theme Outside Inspiration focussed on how staff - both individually and collectively – can find fresh sources of creative stimuli to help enhance solutions for their clients. The Lab had over 200 attendees (including a number of preferred suppliers) and provided staff with the opportunity to learn through a combination of ice-breakers, facilitated workshops, technology demonstrations, crowd-sourced galleries, external speakers and exhibit environments.

Nicola Burns, global managing director, said: "The Lab is an important event and something our staff look forward to each year. It is an opportunity for us to share insight and understanding, develop more collaborative relationships and build strategic partnerships."

Luke Flett, global head of marketing, added: "The Lab gives us time away from the pressures of the office to reflect on the important issues that we face as an event agency. We developed the outward-looking theme to encourage staff to explore the external factors that are driving the fast pace of change and consider how this might impact our agency, both now and in the future."
