ExecSpace reports 500% growth as live events return

Venue finding agency ExecSpace has reported a 500% rise in its business, as companies and organisations return to face to face events.

The Edinburgh-headquartered company, which lost 90% of its revenues when Covid-19 lockdowns were introduced across the UK in 2020 and 2021, has now reported 500% growth over the last year with more than £5m in client bookings secured so far in 2022.

Founded by entrepreneur Emma Little in 2008, the company’s UK client base includes Addleshaw Goddard, Phoenix Group (along with their Standard Life, ReAssure and Sun Life brands), Mazars, abrdn and RSM.

Support and recruitment 

While the company had to scale down due to the pandemic, it also used the time to enhance its offering, and launched the ExecTech platform. The platform is dedicated to supporting meeting and event planners manage their spend and streamline the process across their organisations.

With the easing of Covid-19 restrictions, ExecSpace is also on a recruitment drive with three new meeting and event executives having recently joined the team and plans to recruit further colleagues in the coming months.

The company says its increasing revenues on the back of a return to in-person events and meetings is another positive indicator of a return to a pre-Covid business environment.

Commenting on the news, Little said: “We are delighted to report such a strong surge in our business which also serves as a hugely encouraging sign for the wider UK business community.

"As our current growth suggests, we are now seeing a renewed sense of confidence, especially within the private sector, where businesses are staging an increasing number of events and face to face meetings."
