Venue finding and events agency Zibrant has announced its contract with Centrica will be renewed following a competitive bid process involving several agencies.

Centrica, the parent company of British Gas, has confirmed a significant contract with Zibrant for end-to-end venue sourcing including payment solution, preferred partner programme and online meeting services.

Zibrant has been appointed to work alongside Centrica for a further three years where it will manage their UK venue sourcing requirements.

Due to its renewed contract, Centrica will benefit from Zibrant’s new technology solutions including the use of ZAPP (Zibrant application portal), the award winning online booking platform.

Fay Sharpe, Managing Director, Zibrant commented, “The Centrica Account Management and Operations teams have worked hard to produce innovative and creative solutions for the client. We are delighted to have been awarded this contract in light of the outstanding service the team has consistently delivered in addition to our comprehensive understanding of the account”.

Allison Webb, Procurement Category Manager, Centrica, said, “We went out to tender with an open mind, conducted a thorough marketing analysis and solicited a request for proposal. Ultimately Zibrant was found to be the most fitting provider for Centrica and we are delighted with this decision.”
