Octopus names two new clients

Octopus Communications has won two new accounts, a London conference for Rentokil Initial, and an incentive trip to South Africa for Interactive Digital Sales (IDS), the sales wing of broadcaster Flextech Television. The incentive trip will be Octopus’s first piece of work for IDS, which will join a growing roster of media clients at the agency, including Clear Channel Group, AOL and the Daily Express Group. The four-day incentive trip will see 28 of IDS’s key advertisers and their partners fly to Cape Town in early November. The itinerary includes an overnight stay at the five-star Cape Grace Hotel, a visit to the Shamwari Game Reserve and a journey through the country’s famous Garden Route on the luxury train run by operator Rovus Rail. Rentokil Initial has also appointed Octopus for a conference for 70 managers across its Fire & Security division to be held at London’s five-star Kempinski Courthouse Hotel. The two-night partner programme in January next year will combine the conference with dinner at the hotel and an evening on the London Eye. “By building on relationships with our current clients, we seem to be winning new business and strengthening our case to new clients,” said Octopus managing director Simon Brown. “It is fair to say we are now specialising in high-end events for groups of 200 to 250 delegates that are weighted towards the top-tier of management.”
