Established in 1975, JacTravel, which is one of the world’s leading suppliers of hotel accommodation for the global travel industry and provider of specialist inbound travel services to the UK and Ireland, celebrates its 40 years. Besides its 40th anniversary, 2015 is also a landmark year for JacTravel with the acquisition of TotalStay Group in March along with the opening of new offices in Orlando, Dublin and Hong Kong.
In 2015, JacTravel celebrates 40 years as a leading supplier of accommodation and inbound travel services to the travel industry. To mark the occasion and to coincide with the company exhibiting at this year’s World Travel Market, JacTravel last week hosted a celebratory party for partners at one of London’s most spectacular new venues “The Rumpus Room, Mondrian at Sea Containers Hotel” overlooking the River Thames in Central London.
Stuart Ellis, Chief Commercial Officer at JacTravel comments: “With 2015 being such a special year for JacTravel, we thought it fitting that as well as showcasing our newly combined business in the Global Village at this year’s WTM we would take the opportunity to thank all our valued partners for their support over the last 40 years and of course, to look forward now to 2016 and beyond.”
Angela Skelly, Senior Vice President Global Sales and Commercial Development added: “To be able to bring together so many valued partners under one roof in order to thank them for their dedication and to show them our plans and ambitions for the future is a great opportunity and testimony to the company’s commitment to ensuring that we are THE supplier of choice for our clients and supply partners to work with.”
The event was a great success with over 300 guests enjoying an evening of live music, speeches, (including a special appearance from Jack Corrona, pictured above, retired founder of JacTravel) and stunning views overlooking the River Thames.
