A young event professional from Eastbourne has achieved national recognition as one of the industry’s most talented rising stars.

Former Causeway School pupil, Amber Rose, 29 was recognised at the ‘30underThirty’ awards following her nomination by colleagues at Identity, Europe’s fastest growing events agency with its HQ in Eastbourne.

The national award celebrates the most innovative, impactful and creative people in the live events industry under the age of 30.

Amber said: “I’m thrilled to feature within the 30UnderThirty programme. It is a huge achievement to be recognised amongst so many talented individuals. I joined Identity over two years ago and I’ve learnt so much since then. We’ve delivered some remarkable projects for amazing clients such as the Royal Air Force, Panasonic, Unilever and, of course, COP26 in Glasgow. I can’t wait to see what 2022 will bring.”

Prior to joining Identity, Amber studied at Reading University and worked for Eastbourne Borough Council and St Wilfrid’s Hospice. She is now a senior account manager at Identity and looks after some of the agency’s key clients, including the Royal Air Force.

Identity’s Commercial Director, Rebecca McCreath said: “We all want to say a massive congratulations to Amber. Everyone at Identity is incredibly proud of Amber’s achievements. She is an extremely valued member of the team and as popular with her clients as she is with her colleagues. This award is thoroughly deserved and it’s wonderful to see her hard work being recognised in this way.”

Identity’s work has been in continuous demand across the private and public sectors, making it one of the few continuous rising stars in the events sector – even amidst the pandemic. In 2020 the agency received a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade, the highest honour available to a UK business. With its HQ in Sussex and a new office in central London, Identity boasts some of the sector’s most experienced and highly creative professionals.

Identity is actively recruiting for a number of key roles, in various departments including account management, HR and production. Visit https://careers.identitygroup.co.uk/vacancies/
