PA 70th anniversary celebration: toasting our achievements and sharing our ambitions

Over 120 senior figures from business and government  representing leading organisations from the worlds of banking, pharma, retail and media – joined PA to celebrate our 70th anniversary at London's iconic Gherkin building.

Guests at the celebration had the opportunity to explore digital displays showcasing PA’s key achievements past and present, with a particular focus on the firm’s technology and innovation capability. The displays featured some of PA’s latest technology innovations, including the development of innovative smart meter technology and a completely new manufacturing process for Ora, a revolutionary new kitchen towel.

PA CEO Alan Middleton and COO Andrew Hooke both gave speeches, sharing PA’s journey since the firm was established in 1943, as well as outlining ambitious plans for the future.

To bring PA’s best stories to life, an artist created a captivating illustration of PA’s top 20 achievements over the past 70 years live on the evening.
