Apart from the leadership acumen of both partners which has been brought to bear on the performance and growth of the agency, EventPlus IMS is equally blessed with a team of experienced, diverse, uncompromising, and committed individuals who believe in one another. The coming together of such great individuals working in a family-like setting has enabled the agency to excel in the business of activation, communication or experiential marketing. Since its inception in 2012, EventPlus IMS has never been found wanting in the delivery of exceptional solutions to clients’ marketing challenges. The agency has continued to achieve great feats upon feats to the delight of clients/brands in the nation’s economy.
Interestingly, all these achievements have made EventPlus IMS to grow very quickly within five years of operation to the extent that it has earned a reputation for being a nimble organization that has the capacity to rise to all challenges.
According to Medebem, “I’m extremely pleased with our attitude and ability to deliver results at EventPlus IMS. Over and over again, we have proven that we can deliver activations on time and often with very tight budgets.
“We have professionalism. Our integrity is key and that is actually number one for us. We take integrity to be overall for us. We have had staff that had to leave just because of integrity issues. We are also consumer-centric because in the experiential business, the consumer is quite important and they change per time. So, we take the time to know what our consumers want and deliver the best to them at all times. We are also service-oriented, which is why we do not lay much emphasis on the individual, rather we emphasise the team.”
Medebem added that though EventPlus started life as an events-focused venture, the partners were well grounding in branding which made it quite easy for the agency to grow beyond events planning and organisation to accommodate all other aspects of integrated marketing communication (IMC) business. She explained that EventPlus IMShas the understanding that brand building goes beyond organising an event or outing, “it involves being able to integrate your brand into every activity that you do. The name of the company has even progressed beyond EventPlus. We are now known as Event Plus Integrated Marketing Services (EPIMS).
In the same vein, Dr. Amanerimi said:“We pride ourselves in being original because we are not an accidental agency. So, whatever we are doing today is a deliberate engagement and at the core of that is integrity, which is pretty much our competitive edge. We stand by our promise as we always think, ‘Leap and the net will appear’ “We’re never afraid to take the big risk with our clients, and we will never go to our clients with some idea that’s outrageous for the sake of being outrageous. While we do want to break through the sea of sameness, we also want to be able to back up our argument that it is going to help drive the business forward.” We do only the best and our standards in this industry are very high.”
Amanerimi said the vision of EventPlus IMS, which is to be the dominant and the best brand experiential hot shop in Nigeria, was very clear to the founders from day one. “We did not say the first, we did not say only, but we said dominant. There can be others, but we will dominate and be the best brand experiential hot shop. We are clear about who we are, what we are and where we want to be.”
