MULTI-award winning events and communications company Drp celebrated a successful year with a Harry Potter themed Christmas conference and awards ceremony.

A total of 218 team members attended the event at the Drp studios in Hartlebury, which were transformed into an auditorium for the plenary, a winter wonderland for the drinks reception, the Harry Potter Grand Hall for lunch and awards, and a nightclub for an after-show party.

Group chief executive Dale Parmenter said: "2017 has been a ground-breaking year full of growth for Drp.

"With 32 award wins, two of which were agency of the year.

"The launch of the Drpacademy is a true testament to our anything’s possible ethos and it’s remarkable that the team can be recognised for their continuous hard work and dedication.

"We shall continue to thrive throughout 2018.”

The county firm ended their year on a high with an increased turnover of £21.5 million in comparison to last year’s £16.4m, and a gross profit of £12m.

Various awards were given out with the main prize, the Anything’s Possible team member of the year, being won by Creative Director Tommy Moore, who won a trip for two to Canada.
