Beetlenut scoops ICI and TK Maxx activity

Live communications agency Beetlenut has boosted its client base by more than 50% with four new client wins for 2006, including a series of regional conferences for retailer TK Maxx and a team-building and internal motivation scheme for chemical giant ICI. The wins bring the number of clients held by the agency to ten. “It’s too early to say how much money the events will bring in, but these new accounts mean a lot to us personally,” said Beetlenut director Debbie Bragger. “We’re trying to expand now and it’s great that huge corporations are willing to put their trust in us. “Most of these wins came from our client recommendations, which means our track record speaks for itself.” Bragger added that the agency would not be taking on new staff to carry out the events. “Although we hope these clients will keep us on, the initial deals are only for this year, so we will use freelancers rather than boost staff numbers.” Other client wins for events this year include catering supplier Brakes, international investment company Amvescap and security printer and paper supplier De La Rue.
