A Keswick firm has been awarded a two-year contract with Sellafield Ltd to run its events.

The contract means CBA Events, which is based on Bank Street, will support Sellafield Ltd to deliver a programme of employee engagement and stakeholder events at Sellafield, Warrington, and satellite offices and external venues in West Cumbria.

The contract was awarded using Sellafield Ltd’s LINC procurement tool, which is designed to make it easier for small and medium-sized enterprises to bid for work with the company.

Emma Law, Sellafield Ltd;s head of corporate communications, said: “The contract award is further proof of the diverse breadth and depth of services that the Cumbrian SME community has to offer.

“We were impressed by the CBA Events bid, both in terms of their proposed approach to working with us, but also their extensive experience with other organisations in the North West and across the UK.

"We look forward to working with them.”

Tim Green, CBA Events director, added: “We’re delighted to have been awarded this contract and are excited to start working with the Sellafield Ltd team to help deliver and progress with their events calendar.”

The events firm offers services including venue finding; conference management; corporate events and team-building, tickets and hospitality and exhibition management.

It is also the in-house activity provider at Graythwaite Estate at Windermere, which won a Cumbria Tourism award this year.
