Drp celebrated ending its year on a high with an increased turnover of £21.5 million and a gross profit of £12m.

The turnover figure, which is more than £5m up on last year’s £16.4m, was revealed at drp’s annual Christmas Conference and Anything’s Possible awards ceremony, held at drp’s 212 studios in Worcestershire.

Group CEO Dale Parmenter said: “2017 has been a ground-breaking year full of growth for drp with 32 award wins, two of which were agency of the year. Alongside three drptalk dinners, the acquisition with Penguins and the second drpbigtalk that was held at the drp studios in September with 150 clients. The launch of the drpacademy is a true testament to our anything’s possible ethos and it’s remarkable that the team can be recognised for their continuous hard work and dedication. We shall continue to thrive throughout 2018.”

The four drp studios were transformed into an auditorium for the plenary, a winter wonderland for the drinks reception, the Harry Potter Grand Hall for lunch and awards, plus a nightclub for the after-show party. The day consisted of presentations from drp’s board members and directors which reflected on the year’s achievements and the future opportunities for 2018.

Throughout the day, drp recognised its top performers for the year in the newly rebranded internal recognition scheme, the Anything’s Possible awards. The top award of the night, for team member of the year, was won by creative director Tommy Moore, winning a trip for two to Canada.
