Luxury travel business Exosphere has officially launched an event consultancy division, following increased demand from high-net worth clients.
Managing director John Saunders said that while the London-based company has been offering events since it started in 2006, it had never operated a separate division until now. While many companies are tightening budgets, the events business of Exosphere will target high-end clients who are look for luxury in their events, including private equity companies, the banking sector and luxury brands.
Saunders said the official launch of the division kicks off with the company's new website and branding, which is being shared with existing clients from this week. He said: "We have grown and are now really expanding the events division.
"This is a huge milestone for Exosphere. The new branding and website properly reflect the exceptional quality of our offer. As for events, we've been planning and managing high-end international events for years, but with a sister company. These two spheres of expertise are so complementary, and so frequently overlap, it makes sense to bring them together under one brand."
The new website uses previous travel and event experiences to show the diversity of the company's offering. Highlights include an annual conference for ultra high net-worth individuals in the Swiss Alps, for which Exosphere convinced Cirque de Soleil to stage a one-off private performance.
Exosphere's events director Sophie Duncombe said: "Every single experience is unique, whether it's an off-site in the Alps or a major international business conference. The stories we have to tell are genuinely breathtaking, so we're letting them speak for themselves."
Sister company Albert - which Saunders also oversees - is now being restructured to focus more on social media communications, with its new social media analysis software, Magpie. In recent months a total of three staff have left Albert, after having been brought on to manage a major piece of business that did not materialise.
