A new awards programme recognising excellence and innovation in travel management companies is being created by Travelport and the Guild of Travel Management Companies.
Three awards presentations will be made next year – at the GTMC annual conference, autumn conference and the Business Travel Show.
Entrants will be judged on innovation leading to growth, efficiencies and improved customer service.
Guild member entrants will be judged by the GTMC technology panel, a GTMC representative and a Travelport representative.
Travelport UK and Ireland regional director Simon Ferguson said: “The awards celebrate the innovation taking place every day in travel management companies.
“They recognise excellence, share best practice and promote healthy debate around opportunities to evolve and innovate.”
Guild industry affairs manager Andy Grodecki added: “I would strongly encourage our members to take part and share some of the innovative strategies making our travel companies excel.”
