Preston-based agency wins £4m contract

Agency Glasgows has won a place worth up to £4m on national urban regeneration agency English Partnerships’ event management roster. The four-year contract, secured by Glasgows after a “gruelling selection process that started in 2006”, is valued at £500,000 to £1m a year. Preston-based Glasgows’ remit is to provide event production and management services to help raise the non-departmental public body’s corporate and regional projects and programmes. Glasgows joint managing director Paul Leeks said the agency would organise a variety of conferences, from small workshops to large regional events throughout England for between 50 and 500 delegates at each event. Glasgows chairman Ron Glasgow added that the agency had started 2008 strongly. “We’ve just won several major contracts, including two prestigious events – NHS Live, for the second year, and the NHS Institute for Innovation and Improvement’s Breaking Through for the fifth consecutive year,” he said. “The English Partnerships appointment is fantastic news and will hopefully help us to build on our reputation in the field of regeneration and sustainable events.”
