Capita Travel and Events has been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service framework in both categories, known as lots. The first lot covers event planning, management and delivery in the UK and overseas, and lot two covers audio visual equipment, services, design and integration.

The two-year agreement, estimated to be worth between £40m and £50m, will provide central government departments, their arms-length bodies and the wider public sector, with event services.

This follows the news that C&IT broke yesterday that the Live Group has also been appointed to both lots on the Government's events roster.

It is understood that 10-15 agencies have been appointed to the roster and 89% of those are SMEs.

Anita Lowe, director of meetings and events, Capita Travel and Events, said: "This events agreement could see us working on everything from public sector event design and production, venue sourcing, delegate management, return on investment valuation and financial management to the design of bespoke audio visual systems, event broadcasting and live video streaming, webcasting and multi-site video-conferencing.

"We’re looking forward to helping many public sector organisations drive down the cost of their events activity and to supporting their new centralised approach to communications."

Last week, global software firm Intuit chose Capita Travel and Events to deliver its UK events programme.
