BSI Meetings and Events Appoint Preferred Production Suppliers
15 April 2010
On the back of significant client wins in the first quarter of 2010, BSI Meetings and Events has appointed Presentation Services Provider (PSP) and MCL to support BSI in the delivery of technical services across their full range of events.
The appointments were made following a formal tendering process which was conducted over a two month period which set out to review existing production suppliers. The intention was to source a number of equipment suppliers based on their experience, cultural fit, price, and creativity.
Commenting on the tender process, Jim Quintrell , BSI’s Director of Operations Meetings & Events Services said: “Whilst BSI Meetings & Events have in-house production staff already providing technical and production advice to our clients, we felt it was important to maintain our leading edge in the delivery of event technology and cost efficiencies by partnering with two of the best suppliers in the industry.”
The contract, estimated at over £1m, will allow BSI Meetings & Events to remain flexible in the provision of cutting edge production solutions rather than be tied to any specific in-house stock. Furthermore, with a robust commercial agreement in place, BSI is also able to pass on better economies of scale to their clients, whilst still being able to take a more long-term view on contractual business.
