Creative communications agency Worldspan is celebrating its 50th birthday.
Opening its doors for business on the 21 June 1972, Worldspan can now lay firm claim to being one of the first specialised corporate event agencies in the UK.
Commenting on the 50-year anniversary, Worldspan chair, Jason Wilcock said: The agency was founded by my later father, Len Wilcock, who was truly one of the pioneers of the event industry as we know it. He was a visionary and a believer in the magic of bringing people together.”
Reflecting on the last 50 years of business, Wilcock added: “It has been an incredible journey to date. Over the past 50 years, with the trust, support and loyalty of our clients, partners, suppliers and teams, we have imagined and re-imagined extraordinary events and experiences at home and all around the world.
“As we mark the significant anniversary of Worldspan, we’ve witnessed first-hand the evolution and growth of the event industry as well as its recognition. We are very proud of the good that our craft had done.”
As part of Worldspan’s 50th-anniversary celebrations, the company is undertaking a range of activities to celebrate and recognise its team, clients and partners.
