Select Event Solutions acquires The Conference Agency

The acquisition expands Select's capabilities and grows its customer base, as it eyes global expansion.

London-based events agency Select Event Solutions has acquired The Conference Agency.

Select Event Solutions was set up in 2016 by managing director Clare de Brett as a venue finding agency. The company grew quickly in the first year, supporting over 100 events across the UK, and eventually added event planning and management, as well as incentive bookings to its list of services.

The Conference Agency was founded by American event professional Matt Riley two years ago to support US companies and associations holding events in Europe. It initially formed a strategic partnership with Select Event Solutions to support client events.

"We’ve been fortunate to grow our business while supporting our own client’s growth," said de Brett.

"Their success is our success, and that’s why we invest so much in the relationships with our clients. We will continue to go where our clients need us, both geographically and with the services we offer," she added.
