Client spend up 11% at Inntel after business wins

Inntel has announced its client spend is up by 11% for the first half of the year, after securing £7m in new business wins, including the Royal London Group.

According to the latest figures, Inntel's client spend between 1 January and 30 June 2016 was up 11% on the same period last year, while the company revenue increased by 6%.  The majority of the increase has been attributed to a 20% rise in spend on conference related business travel and a 12% increase in accommodation spend.

Meanwhile, finance company the Royal London Group has selected the agency to manage all its event needs. This will include managing all of the Royal London’s venue finding requirements and delivering a comprehensive programme of events for both internal and external audiences.

Royal London used an open RPF process to identify a service partner with the ability to manage all aspects of its requirements. Inntel was awarded the contract after a lengthy evaluation period.

Sara-Jayne Reid, category manager, sales & marketing at the Royal London, said: "We were keen to find an independent company with a partnership approach to account management, an excellent knowledge of UK venues and the buying power to match it. We are delighted to have found all this and more in Inntel."

Jane Dibble, director of business development at Inntel, said: "Our first quarter results suggested that the rapid growth trajectory we had been on for a year would continue, and these six month figures show that we were right to be positive. I am equally sure that this period of growth is far from over, particularly as we have secured new client contracts of £7m in recent months."
