World Television (WTV SA) is one of the longest established creative and digital video communications agency in Europe, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland with fully staffed offices in London, Cologne, Frankfurt, Madrid, Stockholm and Zurich.

The company was co-founded by Peter Sibley and Andrew Booth in 1991; by 2012, the company was managing over 2,000 projects in 75 countries in 35 languages.
