Creative Emporium sees a string of new public sector client wins


Creative Emporium, one of the UK’s leading branding and promotional merchandise specialists, whose client portfolio includes high profile brands such as Nectar, the UK’s largest loyalty scheme, a long-standing contract with leisure equipment producer Life Fitness, and a recently awarded contract with the University of Manchester and Manchester Business School to provide all of its branded merchandise – has further expanded into the public sector with the addition of two new council clients – Camden Council and Warwick Council.

The Leeds-based branding company has been providing promotional merchandise and clothing to the public sector for the last seven years – having worked with the previous Government’s marketing team at the Central Office of Information (COI).

On the COI roster for four years, it provided all promotional textile merchandise such as eco-friendly bags, staff uniforms, sports clothing, promotional headwear and online corporate merchandise for their nationwide “Change for Life” and “5-a-day” campaigns; and, more recently, supplying all of the merchandise requirements of Telford and Wrekin Council.

Darren Cohen, Owner and Managing Director of Creative Emporium, commented: “Having gone through an extensive tender process, we’re delighted to be working with Camden Council and Warwick Council respectively, which sees us now firmly on the preferred supplier framework for the provision of their promotional merchandise requirements.

“After working with the COI and other council clients for various local, regional and national campaigns to raise public and community awareness, we’ve gained a massive amount of knowledge and expertise in supplying branded promotional merchandise into the public sector and are excited to be working with more council clients,” continued Cohen.
