Eventist Group announces 33% growth in first year since re-launch
The Eventist Group, (formerly Best Parties Ever Ltd), has announced that their total revenue increased by 33% in the 2016/17 financial year.
The group turnover grew by a third from just over £15million to over £20million last year.
The news follows a record season of 237 Christmas parties hosted by Best Parties Ever and more than 375 events which other brands in the group supplied for:
- Eventist Group’s expert catering businesses created first class menus for weddings, conferences, air shows and trade shows. Tapenade served a grand total of 4,000 people at Farnborough Air Show whilst Tobacco Dock Food delivered its first entirely vegan offering for the Lush Summit 2017, for over 3,000 people – one of the first industry caterers to do so.
- Arribar!, the group’s bars and drinks specialists, and iELive, the company’s event technology arm, had a major presence at events up and down the country including the Henley Regatta and Red Hook Crit, providing essential operational support and enhancing the experience for guests with stand out bars, lighting and AV.
This year is set to be even more successful for the group with sales increasing for their regional Christmas parties and confirmed business at a number of UK-wide festivals, shows, weddings, corporate events and sporting events, including a return to Glastonbury for Arribar!
Tim Stevens, Managing Director of Eventist Group, comments: “It has been an exciting time for Eventist Group since our re-launch last year and this year’s financial results prove how busy the whole team have been. This has fuelled our energy for the eventful spring/summer season ahead and we can’t wait to show people what we’re made of.”
Each of the group’s division teams are experts in their fields and combine to create the complete event experience. From event catering and live events to Christmas parties, the Eventists plan, style and bring logistics to life for a wide range of audiences.
