"With the experience and expertise of the team at drp in digital projects and live events and their established track record in video, this is a very beneficial move for us all."

Drp group CEO Dale Parmenter said: "We are thrilled to have HMX on board as part of the drp team and we are looking forward to expanding our capacity and extending our capability as a business, helping to support our mission statement of being the company of choice.

"HMX is an established, creative and distinguished agency which we are very much looking forward to welcoming into our team and bringing their expertise into our business."
