Group executive director Nigel Cooper today announced his bold predictions for the division, which includes agencies P&MM, Zibrant and AYMTM.

He said the forecast was based on significant new business wins and indications that existing clients would increase their event spend next year.

 "The events division of Motivcom is confident about growth next year," said Cooper. "We have delivered year-on-year profit growth through the recession and look forward to significant growth in 2010."

He added that Motivcom may resume its acquisitions strategy next year if the general market continued to recover.
