The events agency has abbreviated its name from Worldspan Group to Worldspan and launched a new corporate image and company website.

It is positive about its growth in both the corporate and association segments and expects to reach a turnover of £8m for the financial year ending June 2015. 

Worldspan’s chairman, Jason Wilcock, said: "The company continues to benefit from new client wins, as well as the delivery of a higher number of projects for our existing clients. We remain on track to deliver further growth across all areas of the business and continue to invest in growing our team of highly-skilled individuals. 

"From an event perspective alone, our team has delivered over 4,000 client events over the last four decades and we wanted to showcase that depth of experience within the new website. A consistent aim, since opening our doors in 1972, is to ensure that we continue to innovate and remain relevant for our clients and our belief is that our new website reinforces our wider expertise in event, creative and digital solutions.

On the subject of the name change, Wilcock added: "Many of our clients and suppliers already refer to us as Worldspan and, whilst Worldspan Group has been our trading name for the last six years, we were incorporated as Worldspan International plc, which we’ve now abbreviated to Worldspan plc."
