We could not bid farewell to this year without recalling the most important moments of 2018 for beon. Worldwide, and our most precious milestones.
At the beginning of the year, the group established five main divisions -beon. Events, beon. Communication, beon. Production, beon. Entertainment, and beon. Technology- becoming a global company offering international services. Besides, we announced our plan to continue the business expansion with the opening of a new office, this time in Paris, France, the perfect move to strengthen our presence in the international market.
Following the strategic line of the company, empowering our communication and advertising divisions, we announced the acquisition of the agency Avantine, with more than 20 years of experience in the sector and expert leaders in Andalusia. This was our second acquisition in the advertising industry in less than two years, a step that has helped to strengthen our communication division with more than 100 professionals of multiple profiles.
We have continued our sponsoring line in crucial industry event such as the Eficacia awards, San Sebastian International Film Festival, or the Cannes Lions Gala 2018.
We want also to highlight some very special projects accomplished throughout 2018. For Revlon Style Master Show 2018 we designed a spectacular show, we toured across Europe with the Swedish multinational Oriflame 6,000 guests event, and worked with Ahorramas, BMW, Red Cross Spain, Cepsa, Continental, Siemens Gamesa, Ordesa, Pilot, Prosegur, Schweppes, Scania… Projects that have honoured us with numerous and international awards. Recognition such as ‘Best Event Agency’ by Control magazine, third position in the world ranking of ‘Best Event Agencies’ at BEA World Festival, together with the recognition of best Spanish agency at national level. More recently, we were recognized once again as the most awarded Spanish agency in the International Festival of Marketing, Communication and Innovation Techniques and Events in Latin-America (FIP), where we won 17 international awards.
We have started our journey in the industry of entertainment as promoters partners in the production of ‘El Médico’ inspired by the famous novel by Noah Gordon, a musical premiered in Madrid, where we have also collaborated in the work production, concept development, graphic image, and audiovisuals.
And of course, this has been a year in which the search for talent and fund raising activities have continued to be part of our daily work. Through ‘Events for a Better Life’, we collaborate with programs that foster music culture and education with the unique, very special concert ‘Cuéntame Principito’, and our campaign #Yonotengoabuela, that support creativity and talent of young professionals with a new winner every edition.
We could not hope for a better year, thanks 2018! Welcome 2019!
