Headquartered at Great Titchfield Street in London’s West End, nvisible will specialise in music, sports and entertainment, building on the extensive experience of the team.
“The growth of the experience economy in recent years means that live events have never been more pertinent for brands and rights holders.
Collectively and individually, this team has worked on myriad world-class and iconic live experiences that have touched millions around the world and I’ve brought them together to create a ‘best in class’ service for agencies wanting to achieve success through live events.
It feels like the perfect time for nvisible; I am confident we’ll be the unseen partner behind some of the most successful events in 2019 and beyond.”
