BCD M&E increases EMEA team by over 500% in two years following strong business growth and acquisitions

Nigel Cooper MD EMEA BCD M&E
At the beginning of 2018 Nigel Cooper MD EMEA BCD M&E addressed an audience of 600 people at the BCD Meetings & Events company conference and stated that 85% of the people were new to BCD M&E in the last 2 years. An incredible statement, but one that summed up the growth and ambition of this company, however, don’t let it be assumed that this growth has just been through acquisition, it has been built on a solid base of client wins delivered by a creative and committed workforce across EMEA.

The company has increased its head count to 600 people across Europe taking in to account the acquisition of the Zibrant and Grass Roots businesses as well as expansion of in-country teams which have had to scale up to handle the growing number of new client wins in; Life Sciences, Sports, Finance and Automotive as well as the growing demand for a full service solution in a significant number of existing clients.

Cooper tells us “A strong knowledge and understanding of the different sectors combined with our ability to seamlessly embed client brand values, has seen us rapidly grow our portfolio over the last two years with new multi-year client contracts and high profile creative event wins. A truly unique and powerful combination.

Essentially we’re a people business and I see our staff delivering passion and purpose every day in offices across EMEA where the teams are going over and above to ensure our clients’ exacting needs are met and surpassed, we call it the ‘Human Connection’ and it’s what we’re all about.

Where we need to scale up, we place huge emphasis on sourcing the best talent in the industry and expanding the teams to meet growing demand. We’re delighted to have seen such a positive surge and look forward to the future as we continue on the path to becoming the number one events agency in the EMEA region.”

This follows the news that BCD M&E Germany has welcomed a number of new recruits including three logistics & project managers and a sales manager to keep up with new demand and reflecting an increasing market share within the Life Sciences sector in Germany.

These new roles are typical of the recruitment patterns being seeing throughout BCD M&E across EMEA cementing the agency firmly across the region and establishing it as a full service events agency combining strategic meetings management, live production and a dedicated Life Sciences division.
