Online event provider, Invent, has picked up more than £275,000 in new business, in the last two months of 2015 smashing it’s five-year growth target by 20 per cent.
Scooping an illustrious contract to be the online delivery partner to high profile global events company, Informa, Ivent’s significant new business wins also include well-known brands such as RBS and Kuoni, the luxury worldwide travel experts.
Gavin Newman, Ivent director, said: “We are extremely pleased with the revenue growth we’ve achieved in our first five years which surpasses our initial expectations. This is largely as a result of our on-going expansion and development within the education sector coupled with several new markets such as travel.
“As online events become increasingly popular, we are constantly looking for ways to develop our platform technology, ensuring we can continue to provide a cutting edge and unique solution which we have built our robust reputation on.”
Further cementing Ivent’s educational sector credentials, 2015 has seen the company reappointed by several universities with Queen Mary University of London also enlisting the virtual event specialists for the first time to design and deliver events from virtual career days to online conferences.
Traditionally hosting large-scale event and exhibitions for both consumer and trade audiences, global events company, Informa has commissioned Ivent’s sophisticated online platform and its pioneering technology, to provide interactive and highly tailored virtual event solutions to its clients.
Mr Newman added: “Informa taking the decision to offer an online events service is a significant step for the future of traditional events and we are delighted to have been selected to deliver this in partnership with them.
“We are currently carrying out a series of concept trials, which means replicating and maximising content from live events for use in a virtual version.
“This has certainly been a great first five years in operation and, with trends continuing as they are and an increasing number of diverse sectors embracing the virtues of online over physical events, we are confident to stay on this growth trajectory.”
