Event agency websites should be exciting and vibrant and show off some of the fantastic projects they have created. Here are 20 great examples to inspire you.
In order to keep up with the fast-paced event industry, event agencies need to increase their online presence and the way they market themselves online through their website. It is no longer good enough to just write what your company stands for, potential clients and attendees are impatient and want to get a taste of this straight away.
Event agencies need to show that they are up-to-date on trends and technology and prove there are the best in their field or niche. Whether they cater to a specific event set or offer wide-ranging services, a killer website is essential to show off and prove what they are made of.
Defining an Exciting Event Agency
So what exactly makes an event agency website exciting? We have been looking into the best websites around and we have decided that to be exciting it has to:
– Pop and catch the eye to make it stand out from the other tabs or pages we have open (and make us think, wow!).
– Have a lot of features or information whilst being easy to navigate – we want to learn as much as we can without getting lost or not being able to find what we want.
– It has to encompass the brand itself (don’t say you are innovative with Arial font please!).
With this criteria in mind we set to work and found a round-up of some of the very best of the bunch in terms of exciting event agency websites.
This bold, bubbly site gives off good vibes from the outset and with bright pink backgrounds and writing it has a fun feel. The bold logo on the landing page emphasizes the brand straight away and offers an introduction video to some of their work. As an agency that specializes and focuses on live events and engaging audiences it has options to meet the team you could be collaborating with along with the easy to read bios of everyone involved.
With client testimonials and a full run down on the Who, What and How of the company you’ll learn everything you need to know about this agency, straight away.
Focusing on experiential tours, festivals, awards ceremonies and other large events this agency clearly has big tricks up its sleeve. With an awesome web design which is fun and user friendly you have access to the creative blog, their ongoing projects and you are able to meet their team for a personalized touch to the site. One of the best parts about the site that makes it exciting is the edge and bold transitions to site pages as well as the darkened video snippets from previously organized events.
From the landing page you can tell that this London based event agency is a creative and quirky one, which is good because that is exactly how they describe themselves. Deciding to describe their previous work and projects as “stories” and highlighting the uniqueness of their previous case studies and individual events, means that they are focused on the details (which is what you want from an event planner isn’t it?)
They have a pretty stunning Instagram Account to boot and it showcases some of the best parts of their events and the team behind them
(Psst: also they are currently hiring interns too!)
Fresh is clearly an event agency that wants to interact with their users with their highly interactive website and the bold, interesting graphics on their homepage. They have worked with big brands and names such as Homebase, M&S, Santander and Hyandai which are proudly displayed on their scrolling screen. You can also easily browse plenty of example pictures from previous events (“case studies”) which may even give you some inspiration of your own.
This global agency specializes in exhibitions, trade shows and conferences worldwide. They have worked with the likes of Skoda, Nestle and Renault and have a sparkling reputation. Their website proudly displays stunning slideshows from previous events. The large graphics and multi-color contrasts draw the eye and then they back it up with examples of their work. One item we found particularly interesting was the examples of interactive digital media that they can provide at events that allow attendees to play games which is a great ice breaker idea to help event networking!
With video images as soon as you visit the homepage you can see the types of events and vibes this agency is dealing with and having catered to over 500 events and 16,000 meetings globally they clearly have plenty of experience. The site is classy and easy to navigate with light splashes of color to make a point where they want too. The site menu immediately has a range of categories such as; event travel, technology and production as well as management and venue solutions, proving it can solve a wide variety of event related problems under one agency.

Luckily it delivers with the bold, catchy titles and introduction videos and since they have 30 offices around the world they have a lot of examples of their work. They have worked with brands including; Nissan, IBM, Cleveland Cavaliers, Jeep, Tesla and Charles Schwab so you know they are used to dealing with tall orders.
With a catchy intro on their landing page with a slideshow you can’t help but get drawn in to the WRG experience which is perfect as they specialize in live event experiences (and you can see why). Past that you are taken to a simplistic design and navigation that just works. The most impressive part of the site however, is their unique “our work” page that gives you the option to pick previous projects according to event sector e.g. technology, engineering or financial to see associated projects they are currently working on or that they have completed.
Clicking through to each of these projects allows you to see stills and video from the event and some catchy information for their case studies. Overall it is an interesting and in depth website that may even give you some inspiration or ideas looking at the previous events that WRG have developed.

There is an array of example photos of clients and event inspiration which you can look at but what really stands out is their “about us” page.
The emphasis on their business culture is slightly reminiscent of Google’s famous ethos that culture is “created by their team”, and with this in mind they host social perks, lunch cook offs’, town meetings and social events for staff to improve team building and culture (and in case you’re wondering they are also currently hiring too!).
