Sledge, the UK-based live experience agency, has seen a 32 per cent increase in revenue this year.

This is a result of the agency securing work with several new and existing clients despite the pandemic, its successful on-boarding of SWM Partners, the specialist pharma events business it acquired in February last year, and  aflexible and agile nature.

Sledge recently wrapped up an eight-week virtual programme for We Are Family Foundation’s (WAFF) Just Peace Summit, in-person events for industry hair publication, Creative HEAD Magazine, and the virtual FACT Dialogue event. Sledge managed the entire show, which was broadcast to a global audience, including creative direction, filming, editing and scripting.

Currently, Sledge is actively building out its team to keep up with client demand, and has launched a website to reflect the changing state of the industry and its evolving offering.

Sarah Yeats, managing director of Sledge, explained: “There’s no doubt that the past 18 months have been challenging for our industry, and we’re feeling grateful that our size, strategic and consultative approach, and commitment to pushing the creative boundaries has enabled Sledge to both continue its operations during the pandemic, and achieve the successes it has of late.

“While our expertise has always been in live experience and film, we’re definitely seeing a renewed focus on pairing these two powerful mediums together, and we’re incredibly excited to be working with clients to bring their visions to life in virtual, hybrid and face-to-face environments. The growing demand we’re experiencing for the latter is a positive sign for our industry, and we’re confident in its ability to bounce back.”
