Leading Venue Finding Agent Opens Aberdeen Office

Posted: 20th August 2014

ExecSpace LogoOne of the UK’s leading venue finding, event services and accommodation providers, ExecSpace, has announced it is opening premises in Aberdeen – less than a year after it launched operations in the area.

Headquartered in Edinburgh, ExecSpace has experienced rapid growth over the last year in Scotland and across the UK.  The company expanded into the Aberdeen and North East area at the beginning of this year, and local operations are headed up by Account Director Jess Atkinson.

The company has taken the decision to open an office in Aberdeen due to high demand for services in and around the city. ExecSpace’s clients in the area include Dana Petroleum, LR Senergy, Aberdeen Asset Management, DOF Subsea and The University of Aberdeen.

During the past year ExecSpace has experienced other expansion including the growth of the team from 7 to 18, and additional personnel will be recruited before the end of the year to service the needs of the growing client base. With a turnover of more than £5 million and a very high client retention rate, ExecSpace is a key player within the Scottish and UK markets.

ExecSpace Founder and Managing Director Emma Little is thrilled to be opening an office in Aberdeen and  adds: “Jess Atkinson has done a fantastic job so far in Aberdeen, however I truly believe that continual investment within the areas where we wish to operate is crucial to us providing a flawless service for our clients”.

“It is naïve to believe that all companies across Scotland have the same needs, they quite simply don’t. The Aberdeen market is different to other areas we operate in and I believe having a permanent base in the city, where other agents don’t, will help us better understand and serve our clients even better than we do already”.

Local Account Director, Jess Atkinson, says: “We are delighted to have an office base located in the heart of Aberdeen and we look forward to using it to increase our presence within the region.”

ExecSpace’s new Aberdeen office is located at Riverside House, Riverside Drive, Aberdeen, AB11 7LH To find out more, contact Jess Atkinson on (07557) 864497 or email Alternatively visit
