AOK Events will deliver Ocado's UK annual supplier conference for 550 people in early 2014. The agency will provide registration services and on-site event management. 

AOK Events organised Ocado's supplier conference in May 2013 at the Business Design Centre.

US company Egon Zehnder, which has offices in London, has also selected AOK Events to organise its seven-day global partners conference at the Hilton Park Lane in London in January 2015.

The event is expected to attract between 250 to 275 people. AOK Events will provide full pre-event support, an evening programme and on-site management.

AOK Events managing director Alex Hewitt told C&IT: "AOK Events has had a very successful second half of the year and we have hit our sales targets for 2013. Next year, we plan to hire another three to six member of staff and will move offices from Hammersmith to accommodate this growth."

In 2013, AOK Events has won event contracts with retailer Karen Millen and Swarovski.
