The Eventist Group has expanded its business with the acquisition of Fareham-based Corporate Events International.
It is the Eventist Group’s third acquisition in two years, after Zafferno and Walled Garden Syon.
Corporate Events International (CEI) is an events and production house working on corporate, private and community events.
Tim Stevens, managing director of Eventist Group, said: "We are thrilled to have had the opportunity to bring CEI on board, a highly respected company with a fantastic and creative team of experts in their field.
"This is also a great opportunity for Eventist to further its offerings through incorporating new and exciting creative channels, which complement our existing brand portfolio."
Eventist Group will revert CEI back to its former name, The Corporate Festival Company but the business will continue to operate as an independent entity. There are no plans for any mergers within the Eventist Group’s existing brands.
Sarah-Jane Williams will continue to lead The Corporate Festival Company as CEO, with the company retaining its Fareham premises and the same team of experts.
Williams said: "The team are delighted by the new union and know how much the Group appreciates our passion, creativity and ‘dare to be different’ approach.
"The union compliments our combined brands beautifully, allowing scope to further grow the business and enhance our offerings to existing partners and clients.
"Above all, we are appreciative of the retention of our exceptional team who are an integral part of our brand, identity and reputation."
