The Manchester-based agency has seen bookings for Christmas events increase by 20% on this period last year and also reports that budgets for festive events have increased marginally. TLC is also forecasting good growth overall for 2015, with a small increase in its corporate event bookings. 

TLC reports that its 2016-17 period is looking strong, with a large number of corporate events already booked and long-range business forecasts predicting growth in both turnover and profits for the financial year.

The agency has hired Emma Palmer in the role of events manager. Palmer has previously worked as UK events co-ordinator at Hewlett Packard and also spent time at TEP Events International. Her new job will include the planning, designing and managing of corporate events and other events. TLC has also taken on student Laura Callaghan for a year-long internship.

Liz Taylor, managing director of TLC, said: "2015 has been a strong year overall for TLC. We’re forecasting good growth in our private events business of around 30% by the end of the financial year and a small increase in the corporate market, but with Christmas event bookings a real highlight by rising strongly once again. 

"Our mantra of quality through creativity and consistency is clearly paying dividends as we’ve welcomed a number of new clients on board this year. I am particularly delighted that we have also increased the number of customers that use our services time and time again. Repeat customers now account for 68% of the bookings so far this year. Happy clients clearly return to you."
