RefTech, a UK-based provider of event technology is celebrating 220 years of combined service among its employees. The company has also welcomed five new members to its team, which has grown from 17 staff to 29 since 2021.
RefTech has been a supplier of event industry technology for over 20 years.
Margaret Reeves, managing director, says: “Hard work and dedication have been instrumental in our success, and our post pandemic recovery. Like most companies in our industry, we were severely affected by the pandemic but since 2021 we have implemented a 70% increase in staff and increased the number of events we work on by 285% – which is back to pre-pandemic levels.”
RefTech’s new hires are in roles which the MD says will bolster and build the project team and account team. “Over the last two years we have attracted 61 new clients, and developed exciting new registration technology. Adding new skills and expertise to our team will enable us to continue providing the best possible service to our clients and maintain our position as a leader in the events industry.”
RefTech has worked with event organisers including IMEX, MPI, Toy Fair, BioScientifica, WBR (Worldwide Business Research), BSAVA (British Small Animal Vet Association), Association of Anaesthetists, BCD Meetings & Events and Premier Events, and on events for brands including KFC, Shell, Jaguar Land Rover, Adobe, Goldman Sachs and Waitrose.
