COI's live events team gave places to 125 agencies across one or more of its ten categories that include live event production, experiential, and creative design, development and management of events, exhibitions and roadshows.

More than 65% of the agencies have gained a place on the roster for the first time.

COI director of live events Simon Hughes said: "We've extended the range of suppliers on the framework in order to both focus our procurement processes and give our clients greater choice and flexibility.

"My team is looking forward to working with the new framework agencies in what will be a challenging period. We're confident that we have the best mix of talent to help us devise great event solutions for our clients over the next few years."
