As the company’s sole agency, Capita Travel and Events has been reappointed to deliver all aspects of live event management, delegate experience and logistics.

The agency has managed the contract since 2012, when it was awarded to Swindon-based Venues Event Management, the event specialist that was acquired by Capita.

Roger Peters, senior purchasing manager at Capgemini said it was a vital investment for the future of the business. "To achieve our event objectives and best value, partnering with the right agency is essential. Capita Travel and Events gives us the stability, security and support structure of a plc with the relationships, creativity and flexibility of a small event agency."

Kay Weatherley, UK marketing events manager at Capgemini added that the role of marketing and events is constantly evolving, and that agency relationships need to remain dynamic. "Capita Travel and Events understand that and they are evolving with our needs."

Paul Stoddart, director of meetings and events at Capita Travel and Events, said: "We’re known for bringing value to meetings and events, but being known for turning great ideas into immersive experiences is just as important for our growth. We’re delighted that Capgemini trusts us to do both and are privileged to be their continued partner of choice."
