Royal Courts of Justice: final venue

Bank of Scotland has appointed Manchester agency Rapport Events to handle its Search for an Entrepreneur series of events, which kicks off next month.

The nationwide competition - a partnership between the bank and the Sunday Times - involves 10 regional heats starting on 11 September culminating in two winners being named at a pair of finals in London on 3 and 4 December.

This latest run of the annual competition has seen contenders nominated by staff from Bank of Scotland branches across the country. Venues for the heats, which will see attendances between 180 and 300, include the National Railway Museum in York and the finals are to be held at London's Royal Courts of Justice (pictured) and the Imperial War Museum.

"We are extremely excited to be working with such a prestigious and well-respected client on an event which celebrates the business successes of people nationally, and provides us with interesting and innovative ways to execute events through the varied and unusual venue," Rapport Events director Chris Teague said of the business win.
