EE has appointed drp as preferred partners to carry out the digital communications company’s conferences and live events.

The new contract will draw upon drp’s resources and experience in live events, and was won after a competitive tender process over the course of several months.

“We are all extremely excited about this fantastic opportunity to be working with EE and build upon our new professional relationship,” said drp board director of events and EE account director Matt Franks.

The communication agency also just announced that it ended 2015 with a turnover of more than £15m – a 20 per cent increase in profit on 2014.
