LONDON, November 30, 2010 - TFI Group, one of the UK's leading event management agencies, was
recognised by its peers at a ceremony on Friday night at the Eventia
International Awards 2010.

TFI Corporate - one of the Group's three specialist divisions - was
awarded bronze for its work in the Best Product Launch category. This was for
its work on Philips Consumer Lifestyle's annual event.

This year, the event was held in Barcelona over eight weeks and included
26 product rooms to showcase Philips' new launches.

William Jeavons, general manager of TFI Group, said: "We have been
working with Philips on this event and its previous incarnations for nine
years, and have seen huge changes in the scope and structure of the event.

"This award is an acknowledgement to the ongoing drive of our team, who
deliver an experience for the three different target groups that are all
serviced by this one event platform. Bottom line, the event must reproduce
the way Philips interacts with its customers at all touch points.

"Our ability to keep focused on delivering top quality throughout the
eight-week duration - plus set up and take down - is testament to the
maturity and professionalism of our team. They see it as their role to manage
the event turnkey in order to free up Philips' staff to focus on conducting
business and building personal relationships with their customers."

A total of 5,037 people attended the event, which was 44% increase on the
original figures of 3,500 people. Of those that responded to a survey, 77 per
cent gave the event a score of 9 - 10 out of 10, and 99 per cent of visitors
said they would attend again.

The win comes at the end of a fruitful year for TFI Group: its Pharma
division has just won two new major accounts - the Japanese pharmaceutical
company Daiichi Sankyo Europe and an international biotechnology company -
while TFI Meeting Point won the VisitBritain account.

The Eventia International Awards, held in association with Conference and
Incentive Travel and Event magazines, honoured outstanding
business-to-business and business-to-consumer events including corporate
events, product launches, company exhibitions, presentations, hospitality,
celebratory events, meetings and conferences of all sizes and formats.
