At the end of 2012/13 TLC's turnover had increased to almost £3m. The company did not disclose its profit, but said that it had also risen by 20%.

TLC’s recent events include the annual awards dinner for catalogue retail company JD Williams and, over the next 12 months, TLC is working with Selfridges on a series of premium customer events.

"We worked hard to last year to develop our private events business in compensation for the tough situation with the corporate market," said TLC managing director Liz Taylor

She added: "TLC has continued to thrive through a number of difficult economic situations over the last 20 years by being able to adapt our events to suit the changing priorities and budgets of our clients, always working on strong customer retention through the delivery of top quality and innovatively staged events."

TLC has made 'substantial' payments to reduce the business debt related to its new Manchester premises, where it relocated and renovated last year.

With headquarters in Old Trafford, Manchester, TLC works with corporates including ITV Granada, Uefa, Minster Law, JD Williams, BGL and Manchester United FC.
