Full details have emerged of BT's much talked about event services roster - with 42 agencies listed.

The list was previously thought to contain 12 names, but details passed to C&IT reveal a much longer roster (full details below). The initial pitch list for BT saw around 130 agencies asked to present and has taken more than six months to reach completion.

The drawn-out process and a perceived lack of communication from BT attracted criticism from several of the agencies involved as well as from trade body Eventia.

A ‘BT Events Roster Day' is now being arranged to bring all of the agencies involved together in London, pencilled in for 9 October at BT's headquarters. This will see agencies meet key BT contacts and find out more about the company's event requirements.

BT has been approached for comment and further detail. C&IT is currently awaiting a response.
