Canvas is the newly-named creative arm of the ESC Events group – one of the UK’s leading events companies.
The rebrand and accompanying website www.canvasevents.com aim to give greater prominence to our creative offering.
Over the last 16 years we have planned or produced, staged or supported some 3,000 events in all corners of the globe.
Canvas creates tailor-made events for corporate and private functions, weddings and experiential-led events.
We will offer a strategic, one-stop shop that includes all aspects of planning, scheduling, logistics and delivery.
Above all we take a highly creative approach to all briefs in line with a client’s objectives.
We call this process ‘common-sense creativity’ – ensuring that what’s promised is practical and that the end result matches or exceeds expectations.
Canvas has adopted a fresh, contemporary look and feel for its branding. The predominantly white branding takes its lead from the company name ‘Canvas’, chosen based on its meaning as ‘the background against which events happen’, and a basis for creative work to take place.
The name may be new but the people behind it aren’t. Our top team has more than 70 years event experience under their belts, and are still brimming with bright ideas, energy and enthusiasm.
In fact, we handle some 150 events and employ around 2000 staff to help entertain more than 15,000 guests in a typical year.
ESC Events will continue to offer support services to the events industry on a bespoke basis whilst Canvas will provide the creative consultancy and full-service implementation that companies, private clients and wedding parties need for their events.
Canvas will be headed up by Clare and John Wickens, who have been running ESC for 16 years as director and MD respectively. The pair will continue in their roles at ESC.
As part of the new launch we have made some very exciting new appointments including Justin Blyth, who cut his teeth in the industry with rhubarb food design and Eleanor Bradfield who joins us as Event Manger from Farnham Town Council where she was Events Co-ordinator.
John Wickens, MD of Canvas and ESC Events, comments: “Until now, all elements of the ESC business have been promoted on an equal footing. Rebranding the creative arm as Canvas is an opportunity to shout about the fantastic team of creative and imaginative-minded experts we have in the business. Canvas is a great boost for the ESC business.”
