The Crown Commercial Service, which has released the full list, said the framework's "streamlined approach" replaces a previous agreement that had 123 suppliers, of which only 15% received business in the last two financial years. 

The Government's new events roster includes 19 suppliers and 17 (89%) are SMEs.

Each agency has been appointed to the framework for a term of two years, which can be extended for a further two one-year periods.
