Business Travel Show 2017 welcomes the return of Launchpad after an explosive debut last year with eight exhibitors. This year, organisers are bringing 14 trailblazing entrepreneurs to the show, each of whom will compete for a chance to win the 2017 Business Travel Disrupt Award.
“The Business Travel Show has a history of supporting start-ups and introducing buyers to innovation, so it means a lot that we can double the size of the Launchpad for 2017 and help to propel even more business travel enterprises along their journey to success,” said Sam Cande, group commercial director, Business Travel Show.
