HARTLEBURY-based Drpgroup has announced the launch of new division - Drpexhibitions.

Over the past year, Drpgroup has expanded by adding more than 25 new team members. It will use the new division to change the way the organisation accesses the exhibitions market, both globally and within the UK.

Although the group has been doing some elements of exhibition work with existing clients it has seen an increase in demand for higher quality exhibitions and the need for a dedicated resource.

Drpexhibitions division will sit within the rest of the group but also act as a standalone operational service, building its own clients.

With the announcement Drpgroup welcomes back a familiar face as leading the Drpexhibitons team will be Ed Vickery. After leaving the group eight years ago, he forged a career at exhibitions and design agencies such as Iguana Group and the DSA.

Mr Vickery said: “tTe timing has never been better for event agencies to hybridise with the exhibitions world."
