Creating World Class Experiences for World’s Biggest Brands

by Alex Cottom

December 19, 2022

DRPG, a 42 year old global, full service, award-winning live events and creative communications agency, recently opened permanent North American (NA) headquarters in Atlanta. Already serving NA clients for 30 years, the establishment of the NA HQ in a booming creative, business, and cultural hub like Atlanta further signifies a commitment to those clients as well as to the potential of the NA market. DRPG NA is actively taking on new clients, with several wins already in hand.

After more than four decades of delivering everything from film, live events, and digital to research, strategy, and creative communications for some of the world’s biggest brands, DRPG CEO Dale Parmenter saw DRPG North America (NA) as a natural growth progression to more broadly share their experience and expertise to enterprise organizations here.

“British creativity is well respected around the globe and we’ve seen loads of success in the 30-plus years we’ve been working with North American clients. Our investment and increased focus here shows we’re confident it’s going to be a big market for us and could grow quickly,” said Parmenter.

DRPG NA is led by Emma Collins, former client development director at the agency and now Executive Vice President, North America. Emma will be supported by Matt Franks (Group Director of Events), Nick Fagan (Creative Technologist), and Erin Dickman (Marketing Manager).

“A global team of passionate creators, we're built to help businesses connect, communicate, and convince. We are always pushing the boundaries and believe anything’s possible,” said Collins. “Whether our clients need that vital strategic insight into exactly why their current prospects aren’t biting or an all-guns-blazing employee experience to help retain their best people, DRPG North America is a single point of contact for creating communications that engage, excite, and inspire in every detail.”

Supported by a team of more than 400 people working from nine key locations across the UK and even more across the globe, DRPG expands the realms of imagination and translates the most amazing concepts and ideas into actual realities.

Key DRPG services include employee comms, brand engagement, events & experiential, digital, animation, exhibition & display, film & video, and design & photography. Key areas of focus include the metaverse, event strategy, creative, and design, and people-first event design.

Sustainability has also been a longstanding mission for DRPG, since 2007, and it is leading the way, not only as a business in the creative sector, but through each client delivery, too. DRPG’s latest sustainability tracking app analyses each decision throughout a project’s lifecycle, in real-time, to determine adjustments that can be made to achieve the best outcome for people, planet, and profit, rather than solely focussing on a carbon off-setting figure. This and other award-winning efforts are poised to secure B-Corp status in 2023.

DRPG clients span industries and include global brands such as Triumph Motorcycles, Avaya, EY, Bosch, Amazon, Porsche, Honda, GSK, Ferrari, Unilever, and Apartments.com.
