Opus Agency Expands Business with CRG Events Acquisition
Opus Agency, a provider of global event experiences, announced its acquisition of CRG Events on Mar. 6, 2018. Established in Seattle in 1984, CRG is known for its comprehensive event management service offering including event logistics, event registration and onsite management.
CRG specializes in corporate conferences, meetings, product launches, roadshows, recognition/reward programs and tradeshow management. CRG clients include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Microsoft, Columbia Sportswear and Unity.
Monte Wood, CEO of Opus, said that adding CRG to the Opus family was an easy decision. The cultures of the organizations were already in alignment, and CRG’s Seattle office location also enables Opus to expand its geographic footprint.
“CRG’s deep event management experience and knowledge, combined with their proven registration services, enables us to give our clients even more of what they love about Opus,” Wood stated.
He continued, “I’m extremely excited to welcome each and every one of the 90+ CRG employees, and I’m even more excited about what our combined teams—a powerful force of nearly 300—will be able to deliver together!”
CRG’s long-time CEO, Leasa Mayer, will serve as Executive Vice President at Opus.
Mayer believes the complementary services, clients, and company cultures will make this union a success.
“Choosing the best acquisition partner for my team was imperative, and I have the utmost respect for Monte and his leadership,” she said. “I have no doubt that, together, we will deliver even greater success for our clients.”
As a result of the acquisition, Opus clients will now benefit from even more scalability to manage events of any size, plus greatly expanded support for registration services.
