This will be the fourth consecutive year that Simply Better has produced Maplin’s annual conference. The agency will provide delegate management, event production, event management, video production, exhibition build and assistance with content.

Oli Meakin, CEO of Maplin, said: "This will be our biggest conference yet, bringing all of our store managers, colleagues and key suppliers to celebrate the current performance and share the future plans we have for Maplin."

Rob Woodhead, director of Simply Better Events, said: "We can’t wait to help Maplin stage their best conference yet. After initially delivering AV in our first year, we have been handed a considerably expanded brief that now covers all aspects of event management and production."
