The events and live communications agency has forecast turnover of £1.8m for the year ended December 2010, compared to turnover of £1.2m for the previous year, after it secured five new contracts worth more than £500,000 in the past six months.

New business wins included Nationwide in December, shoe retailer Clarks and heating products maker Baxi in February, the RSPCA in March and P&G Salon Professional in May.

Canyon said it was optimistic that the volume of new business in the first half of the year would continue throughout 2010.

The agency appointed Sian Hilton-Parry as account manager, Angela O'Neill as content producer and Anthony Grey as business development manager in May to manage the additional workload.

Canyon managing director Jonathan Boyne said: "Our unique approach of true collaboration with our clients, matched by the strength of creativity in the agency, means that we are continuing to gain more high-profile brands as clients.

"At a time when budgets are being scrutinised, we are continually reinventing so each project is not only fresh and alive, but meets the client's strategic aims. The strength of our new business pipelines means I'm expecting this to be our best year so far."
