Clive picked up the award for the Best Event Management Company at the recent 2019 Event Industry Awards which was held at Dublin’s Citywest Hotel.
Clive saw off some stiff competition from the seven other event management companies that were shortlisted in the category, the most hotly contested of all the categories.
According to Gavin Downes, head of strategy at Clive: “It really is a great honour to be recognised for all the hard work, creativity, innovation and operational excellence we’ve delivered over the past year. As an agency that is only two years old in Ireland, we are building something very special, we have a superb team, world class supplier partners and a client roster that we are extremely proud of. A massive thank you to all of them, the other agencies in our category, the judges and the extended team at Citywest for putting on such a great awards show.”
With over 14 years’ experience in the pedigree in the UK market, Clive formally launched its Dublin office in July of 2017, and also recently launched their NYC office to more efficiently service its increasing demand from US clients.
Commenting on the win for the Irish team, Jon Reid, Regional Director of Clive EMEA said, “This is a huge testament to the work of the Irish team, our Creative Studio and our extended partner network. We are really committed to building on the success of what the Irish team has achieved in such a short time, while we continue to deliver exceptional work for our clients and diversify our service offering in Dublin, London and across the entire EMEA region.”
