Experiential marketing and live events agency, Identity, has received the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is an awards programme for British businesses who excel at international trade, innovation or sustainable development. 

Identity has created live and virtual events, and experiential campaigns for global brands such as Siemens, Harley-Davidson, EuroTunnel, New Balance and Google.

Michael Gietzen, managing director at Identity said: “I am delighted that Identity has been considered a worthy recipient and I want to acknowledge the tremendous efforts of the entire 100+ team at Identity who have made this possible.”

Over the last 12 months Identity was responsible for high-profile events in the UK including the NATO Leaders’ Meeting, the Global Conference for Media Freedom, the Get Ready for Brexit campaign (the largest deployment of personnel ever for a UK campaign) and winning the Norwegian participation in Expo 2020.
