Timebased seeks global opportunities for 10% growth

Richard Dodgson, owner of Timebased Events, has revealed to Event that the agency will focus on international work during the next 12 months, as it aims to achieve a 10% increase in turnover for 2014/2015.

Dodgson told Event that Timebased’s international work will continue to be a focus during the next 12 months, with the agency currently developing projects in Brazil for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games. "We are also discussing a series of Europe-wide events for a prospective client," he added.

The news comes as Timebased has also revealed a 40% increase in turnover for the 2013/14 financial period to £4.5m, as well as a 48% uplift in experiential spend and the number of brand experiences it has created for its clients during the same time frame.

"I believe the key to our success this year has been our strong focus on repeat business," Dodgson added. "There has been an increased awareness of our services in the media and by word of mouth, which has enabled us to develop some very interesting new client relationships."

Timebased has also strengthened its team within the past 12 months, increasing headcount from 15 to 18 members of staff, focusing on increasing the agency’s in-house design and creative offering.

The agency has started working with several new clients during 2014 including H&M, Bobbi Brown, Team GB and Harrods, Manhattan Loft Corporation, Knight Dragon and Amazon UK.

"We also are looking at doing an office design review this year," he said. "We have lived in our current premises for three years now and still never quite finished the internal fit out as we were so busy into 2012, and this pace has continued."

Last month Timebased Events delivered a launch event for Brazilian footwear brand Melissa. Timebased will also produce the GQ Men of the Year Awards 2015.
