NYS Corporate, which has worked with the telecoms brand for six years, said the win was largely due to its newly enhanced conference tool, Sbooker. The latest version accesses over 23,270 venues in the UK.

Other enhancements include interactive feedback sharing, live data feeds to update the booker on the status of their enquiry, and a budgeting facility which displays actual costs both on past data and future committed spend.

Event team leader of Telefonica UK (O2), John Worthington, said: "The primary reason we have chosen to recontract NYS Corporate, is not just the savings they promise, but the highly personalised service we know they will continue to deliver and the innovative online meetings management system Sbooker they have launched."

Conference team supervisor of NYS Corporate, Shona Buchanan, said: "I have worked with O2 since the beginning of our first contract with the brand back in 2010. Over the years, we have come to understand the distinct requirements of each of their different business areas, from the Events team through to their Learning and Development department, and I have personally enjoyed working closely with key bookers in Slough, Leeds and Dublin to deliver conferences and meetings across the globe. I was pleased to take part in the tender bid to retain this client and am thrilled that I will now be able to continue working with them."

NYS Corporate's six-year contract with O2 was due to come to an end this year. The company has been the sole provider of venue sourcing and strategic meetings management provider since 2010.
