Tories appoint fledgling agency

The Conservative Party has hired newly formed events agency Fingerprint Events to manage its Spring Forum and annual conferences. Fingerprint was awarded the contract after an extensive review by the Conservatives. Robert Ashman, head of conferences at the Conservatives said: “2006 was a turning point for the Party in many ways and this momentum is set to continue. The change in events agency is to inject creativity, new practices and efficiency to our live events.” Fingerprint was set up by three siblings, all with event management or political event experience. Azahar Hussain most recently worked in marketing for the Tory party’s events department, while Farzana Hussain was head of accreditation for the Conservative’s events until 2002. Shama Hussain most recently spent six years with event agency Octopus. Shama Hussain, director said: “This is such an exciting time to be involved in politics especially from an events perspective. We are looking at working with the Party very closely, to ensure the events we carry out will be at the forefront of the political calendar over the next few years.” The first event Fingerprint will handle, the Spring Forum, which takes place in Nottingham in March.
