The Promotions Team, based in Park Street, has agreed a
12-month deal with Caribiner International, the worlds leading events production
The Promotions Team will supply conference and promotional staff for all
Caribiner Internationals UK events, and some in Europe.
Managing Director and founder Ann Ballinger said:
"It is the perfect birthday present for us and we are very pleased. It is unusual
to have a 12-month deal in this industry because production companies usually work from
event to event.
"Not only does it allow us security and continuity but also indicates how highly
regarded we are within the industry. It allows us to build a close working relationship
with the client which helps both parties."
The company has just supplied 77 staff to Caribiner International for a major Lloyds
TSB conference at the National Exhibition Centre attended by 5,000 delegates.
Jeremy Taylor, Caribiner Internationals Head of Logistics, said The Promotions
Team had beaten off top-class competition to win the contract.
"We sent out fictitious briefs to four agencies asking for a costing, a written
presentation and a presentation in person. The Promotions Team came in with the most
competitive costs and the best understanding of what is a very specialised industry.
"I have worked with them for around seven years and they are the best in the
industry. They are now our sole supplier of promotion and conference staff and we know we
will receive the highest level of service."
In the past The Promotions Team has staffed the G8 Conference in Birmingham as well as
other regular conferences at the ICC and the QE2 Conference Centre at Westminster.
Miss Ballinger added:
"Our company slogan is "More Than Just A Pretty Face" and that is the
reason for our success.
"We hand pick our staff for their ability to handle a multitude of events. They
are often the public face of our clients and it is essential that the highest levels of
professionalism are maintained.
"We employ staff from all over the country but a high proportion come from the
Midlands and many have been with us from the very start.
"At the core of the agency there is a wealth of administrative experience so the
client knows they will get a very reliable and top quality service. That has given us an
edge over other agencies."
