Identity has been appointed to the Government’s list of preferred suppliers to deliver event services.

The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is the biggest public procurement organisation in the UK and is the recommended route for central government, local authorities, and purchasers across the public and third sectors to appoint suppliers.

To be listed on the CCS Campaign Solutions 2 framework, suppliers must prove their ability to deliver ‘high profile, complex, high value, strategically important events’ as well as unimpeachable sustainability credentials.

Michael Gietzen, Identity’s managing director said: “Identity is one of just six-event agencies appointed to the Campaign Solutions 2 list. This is testament to Identity’s immense experience of delivering high profile and complex events as well as our commitment to delivering social value through all our events.”

2020 was a transformative year for Identity, despite the disruption and the cessation of live events the agency claimed 25th place in the 2020 Sunday Times Fast Track 100, the prestigious league table of the fastest growing UK businesses. It also secured new clients to include Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, Harrods, Panasonic and Unilever. Identity also scooped a Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade.

Identity followed these successes with its meticulous delivery of the G7 Summit – the first globally significant, in-person, international event since the pandemic and Brexit. The agency is now in the final stages of preparation to deliver the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26), likely to be the single largest event in the UK in 2021.

The CCS Solutions 2 framework replaces the previous £350m Campaign Solutions framework that has been in place since late 2016.
