touch associates are pretty chuffed to have been placed at number 8 in the UK top 50 agencies list 2017, released by Conference & Incentive Travel (C&IT) magazine as part of the annual State of the Industry report.
This year showcases what phenomenal progress touch has made by leaping from Number 12 in 2016. The report ranks UK agencies by their event-based turnover — a significant achievement considering the brand was launched only five, fast paced, excitement packed, years ago.
The positive result highlights touch’s diverse talent base and unique breadth of experience that means employees are well equipped to deliver every aspect of an event, communication or digital campaign across variously different sectors. We do it all with a single purpose: to maximise the impact of audience engagement for our clients every day, we are architects of audience engagement.
The wider State of the Industry report found that 83% of the top 60 event agencies are forecasting financial growth for 2017/18, 40% of agencies have seen their budgets increase, and 71% of event planners expect to deliver a higher number of events in 2017 than 2016.
The Report also includes the Top 50 Event Agencies ranked by UK event-based turnover and this year, touch were ranked 9th, one of the high climbers.
One of the key agency trends noted was managing growth - over 80% of the agencies surveyed expanded headcount in 2016 and a similar number expect to expand further in 2017. Which we personally know from experience as, touch forecast approached 50% growth in 2016, and therefore, a strong focus in 2017 is set on delivering consistent magic, the touch way.
While budgets, resources, innovation, ROI and increasing delegate numbers and revenues were the top challenges facing corporate event planners. the event agencies were concerned with finding talented people, managing growth, procurement, lead times and pitching.
2017 has been an extremely rewarding year for touch and we still have 5 months left! Who knows what the Top 50 Agencies list will look like in 12 months’ time…
