The BTS Innovation Award is to recognise and reward business travel suppliers for the innovative products, services and processes they bring to market each year.
Due to its popularity over the years Centaur Exhibitions, the organiser of the event expanded the single category to seven for 2008 and even added a special Gold Innovation Award for the winner which receives the most votes overall.
”The panel and I are beyond impressed with the quantity and quality of submissions we received for this year's Innovation Awards - proof that the show really is a hotbed of innovation, ”said BTS event director, David Chapple. ”Every single company on the short list is a worthy winner and I'm looking forward to seeing who will be doing the winner's walk next month.”
