Due to its growing team and need for a larger premises, the agency has opened its Norwegian home within the Telenor Arena in Oslo. With a capacity of 23,000, the arena is Norway's largest events venue and has played host to events such as the Eurovision Song Contest, as well artists such as Lady Gaga, Beyonce and The Rolling Stones.
Christian Stenseng, county manager in Norway, and his team helped to deliver an exclusive launch party for its Norwegian clients and prospects, journalists and industry influencers at its new office within the walls of the arena.
The agency maintains an integral relationship with the venue, which allowed guests to enjoy an evening watching the Nobel Peace Prize concert. Over 8,000 guests were in attendance to pay tribute to this year’s Prize Laureate, President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos.
Artists from all over the world performed at the concert, including Halsey, Marcus & Martinus, Icona Pop, Juanes and Sting. The evening was hosted by American television presenter and comedian Conan O'Brien.
Jason Megson, managing director of George P Johnson, said: "Christian and his team have grown the GPJ business quickly and decisively from the outset. Working from within such a key venue like The Telenor Arena brings obvious benefits to our client offering. It also demonstrates our wider footprint and ambition of George P Johnson not only within Norway, but across Scandinavia as a whole."
In October, the agency reported a 16% year-on-year increase in turnover. Last month, George P Johnson announced the appointment of Peter Davies as UK business development director.
