Clive taps into Irish market

London-based live events agency Clive has opened a new office in Dublin. Three full time jobs have been created immediately, with additional roles planned for later this year.

Established in London in 2010, the growth of the agency’s business into the Irish market in recent years has driven the launch of its new Dublin office.

Clive helps brands to engage internal and external audiences through creative live events and digital communication solutions.

Brands currently working with the company include Facebook, Instagram, BT, Virgin Media, PlayStation, Honda, Volkswagen, Pinterest and LinkedIn.

Recent projects delivered include an installation for Facebook at the Data Summit, Dublin and Facebook’s Boost Your Business European Tour, which kicked off in Dublin.

The agency has also reported that its Dublin office signed a contract with LinkedIn to support its Central Western Europe Marketing team with a range of live events and digital content creation initiatives.

“We see a big opportunity in the Irish market,” said Sean Doyle, director, brand & creative at Clive. Doyle has overseen the launch of the new Dublin office.

“Many of our existing clients’ European headquarters are based in Dublin and it’s their feedback – that they would love an agency like Clive operating locally – that has driven the development of our new Irish operation.”

Clive will offer a range of services from its Dublin office including experiential activations, communications conferences, pop-up events, incentive travel and location sourcing, as well as content creation and digital design.

The Irish operation will be headed up by Robyn Church, head of client services (Ireland). He worked at The Convention Centre Dublin for eight years, supported by senior account managers Robb Kennedy and Pamela Murphy.

Commenting on the announcement, Robyn Church said: “The events industry in Ireland is undergoing a seismic shift, as global brands operating out of Dublin demand more sophisticated event solutions for face-to-face communications.

“From finding the perfect venue or location that helps brands stand out in a crowded market, to creating eye-catching event identities and communications campaigns to engage and attract distinct audiences; our approach always goes back to a brand’s communications objectives.

“Creative content sessions, experiential activations and engaging digital communications are just some of the tools we use to amplify brand messages, ensuring real return on investment,” Church concluded.
