Jack Morton came in at number one, up from 3 last year, followed by Banks Sadler and CWT Meetings & Events, up from 5 and 10 respectively. Completing the top five were Capita Travel & Events and George P Johnson.

The top 10 is quite different to last year as agencies were asked specifically to report their event-based turnover as opposed to client spend/billings which some agencies have provided in previous years.

Ashfield Meetings & Events came in at 6, followed by WRG, Zibrant, TBA and Chillisauce.
