Vote For The drpgroup

Nominations have once again opened for the annual M&IT Awards celebrating the best agencies and suppliers in the events industry. We hope that the work we’ve been doing this year to expand our products and services, increase the size of our team and offer innovation across the board in live event, digital, video and design engagement solutions will encourage our clients and friends to vote for us in this prestigious awards scheme. All votes cast for the drpgroup will automatically enter you into a prize draw for the chance to win a three-night break in in Abu Dhabi’s Yas Viceroy Hotel, including flights.

Cast your vote for the drpgroup in the Best Intermediary Agency (more than 40 employees) and Best Event Provider categories and you could be in with the chance to win an unbelievable break for two people in Abu Dhabi's Yas Viceroy Hotel and Resort in a luxurious suite. As Yas Island Abu Dhabi's premier hotel, Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi sets the standard for exceptional service throughout its 499 impeccable rooms and suites, 11 innovative dining and lounge venues, and the luxurious ESPA at Yas Viceroy Abu Dhabi. Return flights for two are also included on the world-renowned Etihad Airways.

Throughout 2014, the drpgroup has been working harder than ever to improve the already exceptional delivery we provide for our clients. Our new studio complex has been delivering award-winning solutions for a year now, with easier communications and the latest technology driving the growth of our business and the success of client projects. Our business has grown seeing our new exhibition division formalised and GROSVENORFILM become part of the group . Training and development has kicked up a gear with four drpdivisions delivering apprenticeship schemes, safeguarding the future of our business and bringing the best talent into the industry. We’ve already picked up 8 IVCA awards this year and as we enter awards season for 2014, we already have 13 nominations with less than half the key awards schemes announcing their shortlists.

This year, our managing director, Dale Parmenter continued his chairmanship of newly created association EVCOM, overseeing the IVCA-Eventia merger and creating an association reflective of the current communications landscape. Dale has been asked to stay on as chairman for a further year to keep driving the association forward with the success of his stewardship to date.  Dale has also been recognised by the IoD as the West Midlands SME Director of the Year and Dale will represent the region at the national awards this October.
