Rock stars and opera singers, sports teams and comedians all use this London firm to handle their travel while on tour. The business — started in 1988 by John Gianquitto, 58, and Maurice Veronique, 56 — has offices in the US, Australia and Singapore, and at the end of last year bought Sydney-based Axis Events. The new office will form the base for further expansion in southeast Asia. International sales — which represent commission on bookings — rose to £6.5m in 2015.
