Drp has welcomed four new recruits to its events team as it reveals plans to expand further for the remainder of 2016.

The agency has taken on Laura Ciancimino, Emma Burgess and Sarah Robinson as event coordinators and Josh Berlen as live event show technician, taking staff numbers to 180.

It comes after drp revealed its major extension at its Hartlebury building in Worcestershire, which doubled its office space with an extra 5,6000 sqm, with CEO Dale Parmenter telling M&IT he hoped to reach 185 staff members by the end of the year.

Parmenter said: "There has been a significant expansion at drp in all divisions of the company during the past two years, and this growth will continue into 2017. We now have even more room to grow with our new office expansion recently finished. It will always be essential to us to employ people who have the ‘anything is possible’ mind-set inherent in their work ethos, which drp upholds."

Robinson has previously worked with Top Banana and the NEC Group for onsite events, while Burgess has a mix of event experience following her previous role as recruitment consultant. Ciancimino has just finished her studies in event management while Berlen has a broad background across tech.
