James began his career in London over 20 years ago working within the media industry. With the primary focus originally being on marketing, he found his attention wandering into events and event management. Starting with ad-hoc bespoke projects, the requests began to become broader and larger until it was inevitable to start up his own business - Marketing Events and Travel. Since founding MEAT in 2016 he has been instrumental in growing the business from boutique agency to a full coverage agency planning events in locations across the world. James works closely with clients, venues and suppliers enabling him to advise confidently on every aspect when planning events. With a huge passion for music, James has worked on a number of projects over the years in locations such as Ibiza and Las Vegas. But is still looking for that dream project that will incorporate his love for cinema!"
