Clarion Events

Clarion Events employ over 400 people from 13 offices located in 10 different countries, organising over 200 events, exhibitions and conferences annually. Servicing over 12,000 companies, supported by 700,000 people, with revenue more than £90M.

Clarion engaged eXceeding initially to perform a study of their existing outsourced financial platform, this study was to establish what services were contractually agreed, versus what was actually being delivered. After the initial successful engagement which highlighted several areas for consideration, Clarion asked eXceeding to develop a RFP to provide a service and commercial benchmarking service.


eXceeding’s exposure and knowledge of the outsourcing marketplace, contracts, SLAs and service providers proved highly valuable, saving us considerable time and money. We are already discussing other areas of assistance with eXceeding and would not hesitate to recommend them to any organisation.
