The conference, which will be held at the Harrogate International Centre on 28 January, will see 500 delegates take part in an interactive, self-directed exhibition.

The win follows on from Simply Better’s successful organisation of the company’s 2015 conference, which involved inflatable pods, giant ipads and a 'Who wants to be a Skiptonaire’ video game.

This summer, the agency also staged a mini music festival for employees of the Skipton Direct customer contact division, held within the grounds of its North Yorkshire headquarters.

Simply Better director Rob Woodhead said: "We’ve worked with Skipton Building Society on its live events for many years. We started out providing A/V support but our role has developed to the point where our creative and design experts now shape events from the outset.

"It’s crucial that conference organisers engage their guests and we’ve helped Skipton Building Society achieve that by introducing experiences that connect with its staff in a relaxed and memorable way. We can’t wait to deliver another fabulous event in Harrogate in January."
