Bath agency Abode PR celebrates fifth birthday and record revenue growth

By Nick Batten on 17 May, 2022

Abode PR, the Bath-based, global B2B technology public relations and content agency, has recently celebrated its fifth birthday and a record 400% growth in revenue during 2021. 

The revenue growth in particular is a major achievement for the company, which initially lost all but one client at the outbreak of the pandemic.

Abode PR was masterminded by Founder and Managing Director, Jessica Gillingham, a Bath native and former director of Visit Bath. The agency originally set out to help raise the profile of transformative technology solutions operating within the travel accommodation industry through specialist public relations.

Under the strong leadership and vision of Jessica, the scope of Abode PR’s work soon branched from PR into Content Marketing. The team now comprises 10 employees all based in the South West, with a hub in the centre of Bath. 

In the last eighteen months, the agency has won retained and project work for companies leading in their sectors and was recognised on the shortlist for ‘Agency of the Year’ at the Creative Bath Awards 2021. During this time Jessica, who is regularly invited to speak on travel tech and female entrepreneurship panels, podcasts, and webinars, has been nominated for an award as an industry pioneer.

Jessica said, “It’s very unusual for a UK-based agency to have its entire client base located around the world, and a sign that we have well and truly carved out a niche for ourselves within this dynamic sector. I’m particularly proud to credit our company’s success to the talented team we have built, who all hail from within the South West and delighted to celebrate this milestone with them and our clients today.”
