Yorkshire-based family owned events agency Simply Better has reported winning a set of major new contracts, including with iCandy and ghd.
Pushchair manufacturer iCandy and hair straightener brand god are among companies to have appointed the agency to manage events aimed at both staff and customers.
Simply Better says it has received a brief from iCandy to produce a customer event in Manchester in May, featuring a VIP dinner and entertainment.
In April, the agency will also manage a conference for 600 leaders from across the North West for a utilities client.
ghd held its annual conference and 15th birthday celebrations in Leeds in January, with Simply Better providing support on venue selection, event format and creative production.
Other clients for the agency include Skipton Building Society, Maplin, First Direct and Provident Financial. The business, founded in 2001 by Chris Holt, is marking its 15th anniversary with a new logo and redesigned website. It is also staging a series of forums aimed at internal communications specialists.
Company director Rob Woodhead said: “We are experiencing increased demand for our live events expertise and are delighted to be working with iCandy and ghd in our anniversary year.
“Much has changed since Chris founded the business in 2001 but we’ve stayed true to the values that we set out with on day one. We’re a family-run business and family values remain close to our heart.
“We understand that businesses face challenges in articulating and communicating their mission, vision and values to large numbers of colleagues, often with diverse roles and working at different locations.”
