The Ticketing Technology Awards, held in Dublin this month, recognised the Sodexo and Mike Burton Group joint venture’s Rugby World Cup 2015 ticketing as ‘the best premium hospitality or VIP ticketing experience’.

Decided by global online ballot, the award considered price-value, included services and overall visitor experience – from discovery and purchase through to post-event handling.

Rugby Travel & Hospitality sold and delivered 90,000 corporate packages for Rugby World Cup 2015, bettering its London 2012 Olympic Games sales of 60,000.

Chris John, Sodexo CEO Global Events, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled Rugby Travel & Hospitality, our joint venture with the Mike Burton Group, has won the award for best Premium and VIP Ticketing for its work on Rugby World Cup 2015. That it was decided by global online ballot shows we’ve been recognised by our peers across the world, and is terrific recognition for the whole Rugby Travel & Hospitality team, who worked tirelessly on Rugby World Cup 2015.”
