Information for suppliers

The C&IT Agency Forum is the annual gathering of the best minds in the UK’s top event agencies.  This unique and intimate forum fuses inspiring content and focused 1-2-1 meetings.

All delegates who attend are pre-qualified, budget-holding senior level buyers from agencies. There are a limited number of complimentary places available for senior agency buyers with significant purchasing responsibility, and an annual spend in excess of £500,000.

Suppliers attend a minimum of 10 pre-arranged 20 minute business meetings with carefully matched buyers, all of whom have indicated an interest in supplier’s services/venue and have active budgets. There are fantastic networking opportunities throughout the day; allowing suppliers to build relationships with the delegates.
