Make Events has expanded its headcount with two new staff members following its best year, which saw turnover increase by half to £1 million.

The Cheshire agency says the growth has been the result of a number of client wins such as Virgin East Coast Trains and Hays Recruitment, along with investment in technology. Additional venue finding tools have been implemented to allow staff to find venues around the world, while the agency has also remodelled its delegate registration systems and finance system.

Faye Smallwood has joined the agency as venue finding executive while Charlotte Aston Redfern is the new office manager and personal assistant to MD Holly Moore. They take staff numbers at the agency to nine.

More said: "Technology is at the centre of what we do and we use great tools to support our creativity and productivity. To achieve 53 per cent growth in only our fourth year is exceptional and a huge testament to the incredible team I have. I am delighted to welcome two new staff members so we can continue to expand our international offering.”

Make Events also broke into the international market this year after conducting events in Lisbon, Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The agency will deliver its first major charity ball in September on behalf of BetFred owner Fred Done.
