More than half (29) of C&IT’s Top 50 Agencies this year chose to reveal pre-tax profit figures for the latest financial year, with the rest declining to disclose profit.

The launch of the Top 10 Agencies by pre-tax profit follows two tables unveiled by C&IT this week:

Top 20 Agencies by event-based turnover

Top 20 Agencies by total client spend.

On Tuesday, C&IT revealed that Jack Morton Worldwide had taken the number one spot in Top 20 Agencies list, which ranks UK agencies by the event-based turnover as reported to Companies House, followed by Banks Sadler, Capita Travel and Events, CWT Meetings and Events and George P. Johnson.

The full Top 50 Agencies ranked by event-based turnover table will be revealed next week.

Yesterday, C&IT launched the Top 20 Agencies ranked by client spend, which saw Grass Roots Meetings & Events take the number one spot, followed by Ashfield Meetings & Events, Jack Morton Worldwide, Banks Sadler and Inntel.
