About us

We love live events. We love the excitement, the camaraderie, and the pressure – yes, there’s pressure, because in events, you only get one chance to get it right (and we love that too).

We are communicators, problem solvers, creatives, designers, digital specialists. We are live events aficionados.

And we get around. On any given month, we’re in Shanghai, Barcelona, Cape Town, Dubai, Cannes, San Francisco… and more.

We produce events that leave a lasting impression, for brands, businesses, charities, and governments. Sometimes they make headlines. Sometimes history.
And we do it all with a smile on our faces.

About you

You want a role with variety and you like the idea of joining a dynamic, multi-skilled, international events team.

You want to make an impact. And you have the energy and enthusiasm to do it.

You’re a solutions person. A team player. A clear communicator. And comfortable with international travel.

Most importantly, you want to do work you can be proud of. And maybe, like us, you’re slightly addicted to the feeling of triumph that comes with a huge project seamlessly delivered.
