A competitive pitch process saw Crown win its place on the framework for events planning, delivery and related services, which is valid for an initial period of two years with potential for a further two one-year extensions.

This follows the news that C&IT broke earlier this week that the Live Group has also been appointed to both lots on the Government's events roster. Capita Travel and Events has also won a place on the Government framework.

During this period, Crown will have the opportunity to work on a range of events, including public consultations and the launches of new initiatives. 

The new arrangement replaces the existing events frameworks previously managed by the Central Office of Information. The agreement will be open for customers across Central Government departments, their Arms Length Bodies (ALBs) and the wider public sector to use.

Simon Hambley, director of Live at Crown, said: "As you would expect with government, the tender process was highly competitive and rigorously carried out. We have extensive experience of providing events and communications solutions for the Government and we are looking forward to working with them under this new framework."

Two other agencies have also announced their place on the Crown Commercial Services framework:
