New unified focus for UK-based event production group JLL! as two arms of business merge

Oxfordshire, UK-based event and technical production partners JLLive Ltd has merged with JLLighting Ltd to form JLL

 Phil McMichael, group commercial director at JLL, says the move follows  150% revenue growth for the company since 2021 and noted it was now working with 50 new, major clients. Staff numbers have also tripled between 2020 and 2023, he said.

JLL clients include the BBC, ITV Amazon Prime, The Walt Disney Company, Netflix and Youtube.

JLLighting and JLLive are joining together under one new single brand identity – a ‘one stop shop’ full-service technical production partner.

JLLighting was founded in 2009, adding JLLive in 2020 as a second arm to the business as the services the team could offer event agencies, in-house corporates and exhibition clients expanded.

JLL’s owned assets include investment of over £1.5m in new products across all sectors of lighting, video, sound, power, set, staging, and rigging.

Jack Linaker, managing director at JLL, comments: “From day one, we have prided ourselves on being a forward thinking and dynamic business which has continued to invest, develop, and evolve with the industries we work so closely with. When we re-evaluated the two sides of our JLL offer we identified enhancements that could be made to ensure our clients received an elevated level of service from us, and to facilitate internal team efficiencies.”

Phil McMichael adds: “We believe, when we combine our technical and creative expertise, we can deliver even more unique moments, outstanding experiences and above-all, continue to deliver exceptional results for our clients.”
