The Top 50 Agencies table is ranked by event-based turnover and agencies were asked to provide this figure, along with total UK turnover and pre-tax profit, for their most recent financial year, as reported to Companies House.

Narrowly missing out on the top 50 were Conference Care, with a turnover of £2.9m, Maximillion (£2.7m), In2Events (£2.6m), Event Travel Management (formerly Chambers Travel Events) and Pure Events, both of whom recorded turnovers of £2.5m.

Last week, C&IT revealed that Jack Morton Worldwide had taken the number one spot in the 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.

For the first time this year, 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.

A Top 10 Agencies by Profit table (featuring only agencies who revealed their pre-tax profit figures) was also revealed last week, with Ashfield Meetings & Events, BI Worldwide and TRO leading the way.

For agencies that have already filed their 2015 results with Companies House, these figures have been verified by C&IT. All other figures are based on agencies' estimates of what they expect to report.
