Corporate Innovations were delighted to host a select gathering for our longest and warmest supporters at The Shard to celebrate the culmination of our 20th Anniversary Celebrations. We all shared a few tales in an incredible environment with some breath-taking views.
Years 2009 - 2014
Years 15-20 has really seen our expertise mature and we have been trusted with amazing opportunities to support the EMEA launch of Adobe CS6 and the development of a Symantec EMEA loyalty program. We are also helping drive a massive uplift in sales within over 30,000 Camelot retailers with impressive ROI. With the recent leaps and bounds in digital advancement we set about building this expertise within the business and today all of our live brand engagements start and end with a digital component. Digital today represents over a third of our business and allows us to digitally connect live brand experiences and we factor this into our Sales Incentives and Promotions and Reward and Loyalty Programmes wherever possible. These connections have given us the honour of winning over 20 industry awards for our work for world-leading IT, FMCG and Telco Brands.
Years 2004 - 2008
Years 10-15 saw us part company with Wembley PLC via an MBO and we left hospitality behind us. We became a much more nimble business focused on developing services that added value, such as introducing the first pre-paid Visa Reward and Loyalty programme and innovations in Brand and Employee Engagement programmes. We brought on new clients such as 3 mobile and helped support an employee engagement program of 8000 employees through events in a single year and supporting Brand Engagement for McAfee developing our first digital solutions. These exciting developments in our offerings kept all our existing clients engaged and continuing to work alongside us for the longer term.
Years 1999 - 2003
Years 5-10 saw our development in the field of live events, sales incentives and product launches. Notably, in one year we put over 30,000 Orange employees through events and provided incentives for a further 5000 people, and supported Microsoft on the launch of Window 98 within their distribution channel. Our rapid business expansion lead Wembley PLC to acquire Corporate Innovations to grow their events services division. Our hospitality credentials and service expertise, coupled with our blue-chip client base, made us the obvious choice.
Years 1994 - 1998
The first 5 years saw us become experts in the hospitality industry; each year entertaining over 25,000 people through a UK based events calendar and adding a further 2500 people with attendance at global motor sport events. Our subsequent expansion into sponsorship and activation made us market leaders. With a client list of every major IT Company from Microsoft to HP, from impressive FMCG clients such as PepsiCo and United Biscuit to the emerging Telco Brands of T Mobile and Orange. Towards the end of this era we turned our focus to other services our existing clients needed.
