AMR International is the world leader in strategy consulting to the events and exhibitions industry. Our mission is to create value for our clients and act as a guide for transformation.

As the industry matures and consolidates, organisers must work smarter and harder at curating their events and their portfolios. To do this requires actively engaging customers and delivering value to the communities they serve.

Applying new technology, such as advanced analytics and digital and implementing progressive management techniques are essential levers for those organisers that refuse to be left behind as the industry transforms.

AMR works alongside its clients on this development path. In addition to group strategy and event strategy, AMR offers support in every aspect of event transformation:

  • Performance improvement – We identify strategic and operational inefficiencies and develop solutions, including through our Exhibitions 2.0 We help to drive revenues from both existing and new sources, while optimising cost structures. Critically we ensure all this is achieved while enhancing customer satisfaction

  • Digital strategy – AMR helps event organisers create and expand revenue streams through digital platforms. We also advise on the use of a wide range of digital tools that enhance the event experience, improve connections between participants, and boost profitability
  • Market entry strategy – We evaluate target market conditions, profile competing events, and identify growth opportunities to determine the right event strategy for our clients’ portfolio
