drpBIGtalk Takes Insight and Innovation to Another Level

drpBIGtalk’, an interactive day full of tours, thought leadership sessions and entertainment on Thursday 29th September, was the official opening of our brand new building extension. The momentous day and evening event revealed the huge investment into comprehensive and innovative facilities at drp head office. This 4.3 acre site on the Ikon Trading Estate, in the Midlands, is the largest corporate creative production facility of its kind in the U.K.

We unveiled our state-of-the-art headquarters to existing and potential clients with ‘drpBIGtalk’, an occasion full of insight and innovation with industry leading panellists and experts. David Meade, one of Europe’s most dynamic keynote speakers, kick started the event with the power of engagement, followed by Samantha Wilson, one of the UK’s top sustainability gurus. Other speakers included Dr.Elling Hamso, the leading authority on managing ROI in the events sector, Steve Feeney, who built a multi-million pound finance business using SEO, Richard Hollis, an expert in cyber data security, and many more. The day concluded with an evening drinks reception and tours of the facilities, before street food, drinks stations, interactivity, competitions, and entertainment going on into the night.

We have doubled our office spaces and capacity across the entire business. The bespoke facilities in the Midlands include 8 fully equipped edit suites, 3 state-of-the-art studios, digital innovation labs, a dedicated print facility, 3D projection cinema, construction centre, contemporary design suite and fresh new additions ‘The Park’ and Studio 3.


With our own dedicated insight and innovation team, we’re able to harness our experience working with some of the world’s best-known brands.

Callum Gill, Head of Insight and Innovation at drp, commented: “Over the past few years, we’ve recognised the need not only to maintain our excellent creative and technical delivery of comms projects, but also to provide analysis, insight and justification for the solutions we put forward. With our own dedicated insight and innovation team, we’re able to harness our experience working with some of the world’s best-known brands, as well as our team’s insight into the latest and greatest technology available, and put it to good use for our clients.

The drpBIGtalk is the latest in a series of thought leadership events we have been running with clients that has allowed us to share this insight, as well as our thoughts on how the industry will develop over the coming years. From my perspective, any brand, agency or organisation that doesn’t have one eye on the future probably won’t be around to see it.”
