Banks Sadler in three-year Aviva deal

Banks Sadler has won the meetings contract for the Aviva Group, which includes Aviva, Norwich Union, the RAC and Morley Fund Management. The three year contract includes venue sourcing for external meetings, plus management of the Aviva Group’s internal meeting spaces. Derick Shaw, Managing Consultant Aviva Group Travel, said: “After an extensive tender process, including an e-auction and a benchmarking exercise, Banks Sadler demonstrated their market knowledge, negotiation prowess, robust processes and a customer focused culture that fit the needs of the Aviva Group perfectly. We are very much looking forward to working with them.” Banks Sadler sales director Julie Norburn added: “The Aviva Group has many offices throughout the country and hundreds of internal meeting rooms to manage, plus numerous external meetings to co-ordinate. The team looking after the account is already seven-strong and in the first couple of weeks of operation we have seen a huge amount of activity and hope to be able to recruit more staff in the near future.”
