Request for Quotation: Essex 2020 website

We are seeking the development of a new website to showcase the Essex 2020 programme


Web designers and developers are invited to provide a quotation for the creation and technical maintenance of the Essex 2020 programme website, to go live between November 2019 and March 2021.

This website is commissioned by always possible, with funding and support from Essex Partners (Essex County Council) and Chelmsford City Council.



Essex 2020: Year of Science and Creativity is an Essex-wide, year-long programme of activities to celebrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEAM). Essex 2020 will be a series of events, exhibitions, projects and curated opportunities for every Essex resident to encounter in some way.

Essex 2020 will be a programme of 300+ events will be rooted around a number of existing and new festivals, such as the Essex Book Festival in March and British Science Festival in September 2020 – with a whole host of special guests to inspire and engage. But just as important will be the hundreds of activities developed by individuals and organisations from every part of Essex, many of them completely free.

We are looking to procure a new standalone website that is attractive, fast-loading, easy-to-use and clear, instantly demonstrating the ambitions and brand messages of Essex 2020.

It will need to be used by a very wide range of users and can be navigated easily whether someone is searching events, looking to submit an event or wants to find out more about the story of STEAM in Essex.
