Experiential Marketing Toronto Agency Tigris Acquires New Office
Tigris, a Top Experiential Marketing Toronto Agency, is Expanding!
As many of you know, Tigris surpassed our 10th year milestone in 2014 and is well into our 11th year in the business. We couldn’t be more excited to share the news – we are moving!
Although the move isn’t significant in distance (the new space will be just 5km away – on the border of Pickering/Ajax) it is significant in size! Tigris has operated from an open concept space with room for 4 employees since 2007 with a satellite office in Toronto for additional support. The new office will afford the space for twice the number of employees and ample storage space. Our head office team is extremely excited for the move, which will take place March 7-8 weekend. The new office space will accommodate our growing needs for space and volume of internal employees (our Marketing & HR Coordinator recently transitioned from part time to full time. Who knows… we may even take on interns next!).
The new office space is double the size of our current space with 2 floors, 2 washrooms, a boardroom, kitchen, 6 offices and a front reception area. The office space was previously operating as health and wellness clinic and their brand colours happen to match Tigris’ – how perfect! Our account coordinators can’t wait to start decorating their new offices! Our new sign is designed and will be up once we take possession Feb. 27. We are literally counting down the days until the big move.
Tigris is Excited for a New Milestone & Humbled by the Growth of our Experiential Marketing Toronto Agency.
None of this could have been possible without our amazing clients and temporary staff across Canada. Our client base has grown exponentially, resulting in sales doubling from 2013 to 2014. We’re just shy of 100 quotes and proposals for 2015 to support event services and requests across the country, and it’s only February! We’ve also hosted several interviews this year to expand our roster of temporary staff in Canada’s major markets including Toronto, Victoria, Edmonton, and Calgary. We even have an event in New York City this coming Sun., Feb. 15 in association with Krista Slack and MLSE.
We know that we aren’t the only temporary staffing agency in Toronto, and there has been a lot of new companies to arise in the past five years. We pride our growth in our ability to provide top event management, brand ambassadors and promotional models, as well as our ability to specialize in experiential, creative, and event planning. We are a small experiential marketing Toronto agency company that creates high impact experiences to help consumers connect to big brands.
Speaking of big brands, we don’t usually like to brag, but event portfolio is quite large and continues to grow. Some of our notable clients include Petcurean, Bell Media, CHIN Radio, Zoom Media and Campari. We pride ourselves on the relationships we have built with these reputable brands and value the experiences we have created with them.
We are so excited to add “New Office Space” to our list of milestones.
