Train delay compensation platform Railguard has won a newly launched award for innovation at the GTMC’s overseas conference in Ireland.
Voted for by delegates at the conference, Railguard will benefit from access to the GTMC partnership programme for 12 months.
The prize also includes a workshop with Travelport’s chief storyteller Jason Nash to offer guidance on developing the firm’s own brand story and a mentoring day with the Founders Factory team of experts.
The GTMC’s Entrepreneurs In Business Travel Awards saw five innovative start-up companies battle it out on stage at the conference.
GTMC chief executive Adrian Parkes said: “We developed the awards to recognise talent as we can see an incredible level of innovation within the sector.
“We feel it’s very important to support entrepreneurialism in our industry and continue to nurture it for the purpose of broadening technology and product development for the business traveller, our partners and GTMC member TMCs.”
Railguard director Matt Freckelton added: “It is a great honour to be awarded this accolade by the GTMC community.
“Since launching Railguard the team has worked incredibly hard to ensure we have the right technology in place to deliver an effective solution to the business travel community.
“This award is a testament to that hard work and we look forward to working closely with the GTMC and its members and partners in the future to build our offer even further.”
