Esprit Digital today joins an elite group of British companies who have been recognised for continued success in international trade. As a Queen’s Award winner the company has received an invitation to attend a special reception at Buckingham Palace with HM The Queen this coming July.

For many years Esprit has exported bespoke advertising screen solutions to every corner of the globe, often to the most high profile and challenging public environments such as Airports, Metros and Shopping Malls. Having completed sizeable projects on London Underground escalators, in Westfield London and Stratford and all of the major UK airports including Heathrow, Esprit embarked on a journey to introduce their ground-breaking designs and technology to large overseas infrastructure owners. Notable wins followed in Europe, the Middle East and the US before the company tendered for and won the largest ever digital rollout in Australia – 37 malls were converted from paper adverts to digital screens in 21 nights, a project worth over A$21 million.

James Brenner, CTO of Esprit Digital commented, “The Queen’s Awards are the most prestigious business accolades you can win. They are only awarded to companies demonstrating the highest level of excellence over several years and spanning countless projects – we are truly honoured and delighted to receive the award for International Trade. After a year of unparalleled success for every aspect of the business in 2015, we are currently in the process of building a new ‘state of the art’ facility in Stevenage and will create up to 10 new positions this year. Over the summer we will be celebrating in style with a party for all of our worldwide staff attended by a Royal representative.”

Just over 100 Queen’s Awards have been announced this year for outstanding business achievement in the fields of International Trade, Innovation and Sustainable Development.

Managing Director Peter Livesey added, “Esprit has built its reputation on reliability, keeping screens working in difficult conditions 24/7/365 for a minimum of 5 years. As a company we are going from strength to strength and it is particularly gratifying that as one of the founders of the technology driving the digital out-of-home (DOOH) revolution, the whole team has been rewarded for a lot of very hard work.”
