Toronto, CANADA

TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fervent Events Inc. announced it was named #47 on Canadian Business’ Growth 500 list overall and as Canada’s Fastest Growing marketing agency in 2018. An industry leader since 2009, Fervent Events has created and implemented over 1,000 experiential marketing campaigns across the country, specializing in creating live brand experiences hinged on face-to-face interactions.

The Toronto-based experiential marketing agency has continually left consumers with striking impressions and created long-lasting impact through the creation, development and execution of non-traditional marketing campaigns. Delighted clients include Universal Music Canada, ZWILLING J.A. Henckels, A&W Canada and Johnsonville Sausage among others. Fervent Events is also a preferred vendor at Costco Canada for in-store product demonstrations, where they utilize their roster of over 900 part-time brand ambassadors nationwide.

Launched on a shoestring budget of $4,000 in 2009, entrepreneur and expatriate CEO, Calum McGuigan, saw a vision and space for growth in the industry with the creation of Fervent Events. McGuigan’s vision has paid off as “Canada’s fastest-growing marketing agency” has soared to new heights with five-year growth of 1,500 per cent.

“You can't ever really relax or rest on your laurels,” said Calum McGuigan, president, Fervent Events. “Just because last year was good, doesn't ensure this year’s success. You need to keep growing, innovating and creating opportunities otherwise you'll become stagnant – and when you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backward.”

The ranking comes in advance of Fervent Events’ Canadian Business Excellence Award for Private Businesses, to be awarded on September 25, 2018. The award is for having demonstrated a strategic approach to successfully improving performance and achieving goals, focusing on delighting clients, engaging employees, and fostering a culture of innovation in the workplace.
