Collaborate acquires a design agency | Conference News


Global experiential agency Collaborate has acquired London-based design agency Banbury Walker Studio to accelerate its creative offering.

Banbury Walker Studio has worked with agencies for over 12 years, but will now operate as an in-house design team to expand Collaborate’s offering. The company’s experience spans live event design, exhibitions, interior design, high-end retail and hospitality, 3D, graphic design and visualization.

Ben McMahon, Founder of Collaborate, said: “We have had a long-standing working relationship with Banbury Walker for many years now, so we naturally jumped at the chance to fully integrate them into the Collaborate family.

“Their endless creativity, technical expertise and dedication to excellence – from concept to execution – are essential to our goal of delivering ever more engaging and inspiring experiences for brands and their customers.”

The acquisition, which is expected to go live on February 4, is part of a continued growth strategy for Collaborate, which has grown year-over-year since its launch six years ago, thanks in part to its expertise in virtual and hybrid experiences, that says.

Andrew Walker, Co-Founder and Executive Creative Director, Banbury Walker Studio, said, “We are thrilled to join the Collaborate team. There’s a huge sense of energy behind the agency right now – they’ve brilliantly capitalized on the changing trends in the category, have a fantastic roster of clients, and embrace innovation. It’s a company that goes a long way, and we wanted to be on board for the journey.
