The agency's profit for the year rose from £399,000 in 2014 to £764,000 in 2015, on a turnover of £2.87m in 2015, a rise of 41% from 2014.

Conference Care also registered a 39% rise in gross profit, from £2m in 2014 to £2.8m in 2015, while operating profit grew by 89%, from £514,000 to £970,000, in the same period.

Throughout the year, the principal activity for the company continued to be organising accommodation and venues for conferences. 

Director at Conference Care, Christ Peacock, told C&IT that it was a great year for the agency, which gave all of its staff a 5% pay rise in May as a result of strong financials.

He said: "This was a good year for us. I mainly put it down to some significant client wins in the healthcare and finance sectors, and some high-value special projects we did that were linked to major UK events. It’s particularly nice for us as this year was the agency’s 20th anniversary."
