Our focus is you
After three decades planning and managing conferences, events and exhibits for leading international brands, we’ve come to realise that the most important part of any event is the same in every case: you.
Rapiergroup crafts brand experiences built around the individual; around the success of our clients; around the happiness of our employees; and around the engagement of visitors to every event we host.
We are honest, transparent, curious – always asking how conferences, events and exhibits can be delivered at the next level. Paired with our creative insight, strategic experience and faultless agility and execution, the result is event excellence every time, built around you.
A history of excellence
Rapiergroup’s foundations stretch back to 1954, when Rapiergroup was part of a wider body of companies. Following an acquisition in 1988, Rapier Design Limited – trading as Rapiergroup – emerged as an entity itself, project managing exhibit design and execution for a range of defence and security clients, including Marconi Systems and British Aerospace.
Fast-forward three decades, and Rapiergroup is now an international presence at conferences and events for the financial, automotive, pharmaceutical and medical, and defence and security sectors, working with the likes of Audi, BAE Systems, Bayer, Clearstream, Daiichi Sankyo, Nestlé, Renault, Skoda, Sibos and SWIFT.
With 60 staff spread across two offices, our offering includes all aspects of conference and event management and delivery globally, including: conference organisation; event strategy, production and logistics; employee training and engagement; content and communications; and our best-in-class exhibit design capability.
Our resumé is among the fullest and most impressive in the events industry. What powers it? Our mission: to get people talking.
Blended for best results
Every event is important; every event is different.
That’s why we approach each brief with fresh thinking, backed by intelligence and experience. We like to think of our work as a chemistry set; the key elements are constantly the same, but our blend is always bespoke.
We have the personality to collaborate hand-in-hand with our clients, the skill to develop creative, cost-effective strategy, the experience and knowledge to anticipate and deal with issues before they occur, and watertight processes to ensure projects are delivered on time, to brief, every time.
The chemistry works. Just ask our clients.
The key elements are always the same, but our blend is bespoke every time.
