An innovative events and entertainment company that’s held on to its family-run ethos is celebrating doing business for a quarter of a century. While Benson’s Agency has retained its boutique business feel, its client book is bursting with well-known names, its list of entertainers promises to thrill, and its effective staffing services have been used up and down the country. With an owner that took over the helm just three years ago, the agency is already planning for its next quarter of a century.
From providing enthusiastic promotional staff for the meetings, incentive conferences and exhibitions industry to delivering bespoke entertainment that promises to add the wow factor, Benson’s Agency has been offering showstopping, solutions for 25 years. Working across an incredibly diverse portfolio, with a particular focus on motorsports, including the likes of Audi, Renault, Alpine, and Skoda, Benson’s Agency has been adding that special touch to its clients’ events.
While the last 25 years have been hailed a success, Benson’s Agency has even bigger plans for the next 25. Working with management companies, independent event planners, and venues across the UK, the agency is looking forward to further expanding its professional delivery of event services.
Just three years ago Hayley Selway took charge of the reins when the previous owner retired, having worked for this business since the age of 18. Going from a talented dancer and stilt-walker to thriving entrepreneur is a Cinderella story to inspire clients on its own. Since 2015, Selway has focussed on investing in the business – bringing new ideas, doubling the client base, building a new website, introducing social media, and expanding the brand’s service provision – setting it up for further success in the future.
Selway said, “The last three years have been a whirlwind and a lot of hard work but taking a step back at the 25-year milestone shows just how far we’ve come and makes it all worth it. Being part of Benson’s Agency since I was 18 has been a privilege and using all my experience to build for the future is incredibly exciting and rewarding.
“Choosing the right staff and having the right kind of entertainment can really transform an event and set the tone. Whether our clients are looking for meet and greet staff or aerial artists and circus performers to take guests’ breath away, we handpick staff to ensure the very best people for the job are on hand, whatever the event.
Core to Benson’s Agency’s success is the skill and professionalism of its team. With staff welfare a top priority for the firm, clients are guaranteed to have access to happy event representatives that take pride in the small details, from pristine uniforms to perfect formations.
Hayley Selway is happy to comment on a wide range of features about the entertainment industry and participate in interviews.
