Rugby World Cup Limited has awarded the contract to exclusively create, implement and market the official corporate hospitality and travel programmes for the 2015 and 2019 Rugby World Cups to Rugby Travel & Hospitality (RTH).

RTH, a joint venture between Sodexo UK and the Mike Burton Group, managed the delivery of the award-winning official travel and hospitality programmes for the Rugby World Cup 2007 in France, achieving record sales figures.

RTH is also managing the delivery of the official programmes for the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

"We are delighted to be extending our excellent partnership with RTH through to Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan. The company has vast operational experience, a highly professional and innovative approach and is globally renowned for delivering exceptional travel and hospitality programmes," said Bernard Lapasset, Rugby World Cup Chairman. "The commercial ticketing programme has been one of the major success stories for Rugby World Cup, enhancing the tournament experience for hundreds of thousands of Rugby fans from all around the world and contributing massively to the global development of the game."

RTH will establish offices in London in 2012 to plan and deliver the RWC 2015 travel and hospitality programmes before moving to Tokyo in preparation for Rugby World Cup 2019.
