This will be the tenth year that LRI produces the CBI conference. The business was originally pitched for through a competitive tender process and LRI has since worked closely with CBI to produce the high-profile event.
LRI will be responsible for designing and producing the main stage set, working with the design team at CBI to implement its creative ideas, supporting all the partners and the CBI events team, supplying feeds to international broadcasters and taking care of the press and media facilities.
Robert Lipfriend, chairman of LRI, said: "It’s a great honour to work on such a highly prestigious event, especially with senior cabinet ministers, other political leaders and international business figures among those speaking. The conference is covered by both national and global media."
LRI has also expanded its team recently with the appointment of David Davies as senior producer. Before joining LRI, Davies worked as a freelance producer and has recently delivered projects for Channel 4, United Nations, Mercury Prize, BBC Music, Deloitte, Citi and Adidas.
Elliot Levi, MD of LRI, said: "David is a great addition to LRI, bringing with him a wealth of experience in both the live event and video production sides of the business."
