The Agency

A little about us…

At Bray Leino Events (www.brayleinoevents.co.uk) we create world-class Live Events and Exhibitions. We’ve been doing it for over 30 years.

Many agencies claim to do both, but only really do one and dabble in the other. Bray Leino Events started out as two separate entities, building a strong heritage in each discipline, before coming together to offer a complete and integrated solution to our clients.

We are international and growing – with over 350 employees in 8 locations across the UK, Singapore, Shanghai, Kuala Lumpur and Chicago.
We have the best people, in-house, who work with our clients as an extension of their team to exceed expectations every time.

We have an exciting opportunity for an Events Project Co-ordinator to be based in our Midlands office, just outside of Stratford upon Avon in a converted barn with beautiful rural views!
