US base assists WEM to rack up worldwide wins

World Event Management (WEM) has reported a series of global client wins following the expansion of its US division. Client wins include Johnson & Johnson, Wyeth and Aventis. Other undisclosed wins come from the healthcare sector, which makes up 70% of WEM’s client portfolio. Global events include several advisory board meetings, team-building events and the first annual summit meeting and convention for managed care nurses. “We have witnessed not only local wins but also growth within global accounts as a result of being located in the US,” said WEM UK sales and marketing director Graham Keene. “Healthcare companies, many of which have offices in the same area as our US division, are increasingly including global events in their marketing mix and therefore looking for companies with a reputation for delivering world-class events.” WEM has also appoin-ted two account coordinators in its US office – Kris Hammar and Shana McClinthey. Following the revelation earlier this year that WEM’s US operation had doubled its headcount since January, the company has moved offices to accommodate the expansion but remains in Lambertville, New Jersey.
