Creative Consulting & Development Works has had a long-standing relationship with Parliament. In the years following its inception, Creative Consulting & Development Works has been contracted by Parliament to provide promotional products for the various conferences and events hosted by them.
One such conference was the United Nations (UN) Energy Conference that took place in October 2005. Other conferences held were the Women’s Conference and the Housing and Sustainability Conferences.

Other recipients of the promotional items include the Library of Parliament and the Human Resource Department of Parliament during wellness week. The promotional items included the following:
