For the second consecutive year, leading travel technology provider Worldspan has won the award of Best Technology Provider at the annual British Travel Trade Awards sponsored by Travel Trade Gazette.

Worldspan secured the award competing against all the global distribution system (GDS) providers, as well as other technology providers to the travel industry. The awards, selected by TTG readers, demonstrate how Worldspan is both respected and trusted within the travel industry when it comes to providing travel-booking technology. Worldspan's products and services are at the core of thousands of successful travel agency businesses around the world.

More than 1500 people attended the 2005 British Travel Awards ceremony in London's Battersea Park. Winners are generally recognised as setting the benchmark for others to follow in each of the categories.

David Taylor, director of UK and Ireland & Distributor Markets for Worldspan, said, "Awards such as these, voted by the very people we do business with on a day to day basis, make us extremely proud of what we are achieving. Providing solutions that are clearly benefiting our customers' businesses is what we do best and what we will continue to focus on. Worldspan is a true agency partner that does not compete with its customers as a travel retailer."
