With over 20 years in the events and brand activations industry, our flexible and dynamic structure allows us to meet clients’ needs through agile and responsive units, delivering meaningful and engaging brand experiences.

We are not into the traditional, centralised agency model where account managers are assigned to individual client accounts, Worx Group runs an agile model, where we shape and reshape our team to suit the project or client, therefore delivering service, not just services.

Our business is delivered through three focus areas: Experience, Studio, and Excellence.

Our Experience team focus on all projects that happen live where an audience has a creative and meaningful experience in an environment we have designed and delivered.

Our Studio work covers craft that requires either design, digital or camera/production based skills to bring an idea to life on a page, on a device, or on a giant screen.

Our attitude to Excellence means we strive for the very best disciplines and execution in everything that makes us a leading agency in our space.

At Worx Group we always question the norm, push to captivate, and believe that opportunities are indeed everywhere.
