In2Events Account Manager, Stacey Close has made C&IT's A-List that celebrates the top 35 UK event agency players aged 35 and under. For the fourth consecutive year we have had a representative from our events team acknowledged in this list, a fantastic achievement for the company and individuals.

It is testament to the agencies ethos of 'the difference between us and other agencies...is us!' that we continue to employ the best talent in the industry. We stand by our mission of “Creating exceptional experiences, every time”, and it's our amazing team of event professionals that allows us to do this.

Stacey began her career working as freelance designer for luxury hotels around the world before moving into the global technology industry. Seeking a role that appealed to her creative outlook, she took on an account management role at In2Events at the beginning of 2016.

Best Project I've worked on: "The greatest thing for me is coming in and working with our key client accounts and seeing them grow during the past year, which has been a great personal and company achievement."

Most Challenging Moment: "The scenario of picking yourself and the team up when any pitches aren't successful."

Dream Client: "I love rugby so if I ever got the opportunity to work with the England Rugby team it would be a dream come true."

Goals before 40: "To aim towards the Account Director role and perhaps move into a business consultancy role."
