Former Avenue Events project manager Steve Catling has launched a new event management agency, Hippo.

Hippo is an independent full service agency, specialising in event management and global venue finding, organising conferences, product launches, training, team building and roadshows.

Based in Surrey, Steve Catling, director of Hippo has more than seven years’ experience in event management, with experience on both the agency and corporate sides. Catling's previous employers include Best Parties Ever, Avenue Events and Lloyds Banking Group. 

Catling states: "Hippo derived from my desire to service clients using the five guarantees we pride ourselves on in every single aspect of our work. Honesty, initiative, personal, proactive and on-target. We believe these five principals of working are the fundamentals of a successful event and client relationship, hence the company name.

"Hippo is a young, fresh company with a positive attitude. I always say the answer is 'yes', what’s the question? I believe in being proactive, not reactive. It’s just about getting the word out about our approach to our work. Success doesn’t happen overnight, but I believe hard work pays off."
