Our approach

What makes us unique?

These are the three things that we feel make us unique, along with our promise to all of our clients.

We are not just about doing what we have been asked to do. Our clients value us for our honesty and passion for doing what is right.

They like that we question and challenge. That is how we get the right results, and we guarantee that they are measurable.

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.

It's all backed up by our promise to our clients, measurable results guaranteed.

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 over three decades, and Rapiergroup is now an award-winning creative agency producing exceptional events, experiences and exhibitions around the world and online for the financial, automotive, pharmaceutical and medical, and defence and security sectors.

Our offering includes all aspects of conference and event management and delivery globally, including: creative consultancy, conference organisation; event strategy, production and logistics; digital; content and communications; and our best-in-class design capability.

Our resumé is among the fullest and most impressive in the events industry. What powers it? Our passion and purpose: Connecting people and brands.
