Established in the summer of 2008, INVNT is the global brand storytelling agency™. They launched their APAC office, led by Australian native Laura Roberts, who was a member of INVNT’s founding team, in October 2017 to address a surge of demand across the region for live brand experiences.
In 2018 the agency grew from one to five employees – which saw the team move to larger premises at the beginning of 2019, secured 10 new clients, achieved an RFP success rate of over 95%, and saw a 100% client retention rating. The INVNT team successfully delivered events including Xerocon Brisbane, TEDxSydney and the Atlantis Sanya launch, and they grew the Xero account from local to global, with their US counterparts delivering the event in Atlanta.
The agency’s challenger approach, competitive fee structure and killer talent was so well received in 2018, INVNT launched a second APAC office in Singapore at the end of last year.
