There was no change to the top four since last year’s ranking - Zibrant retains the number one spot (previously held by its former parent company Motivcom), followed by Ashfield Meetings & Events in second, Jack Morton Worldwide in third and George P Johnson in fourth.

One of this year's high climbers, Banks Sadler, takes fifth spot, up from 11th last year.

The Top 50 UK Agencies table is ranked by event-based turnover in 2014 (agencies that do not report in December have been asked to provide an estimate for the calendar year).

For the first time, only the top 20 agencies are being revealed initially – the full Top 50 will be released next week (23 June).

There was a bit more shuffling around in the top ten, with BCD Meetings & Events rising to sixth from tenth, followed by Capita Travel & Events in seventh and WRG in eighth, both of whom have dropped one spot from last year. TRO comes in at ninth spot, down from fifth, and CWT Meetings & Events completes the top ten in the final place, falling from eighth.

Elsewhere in the top 20, there are three new entries - Chillisauce in at 13 and The Black Tomato Agency and Touch, which came in at 19 and 20 respectively. Meanwhile, ATP Event Experts jumped from 23rd to 15th place.
