Battleground, designed for startup and emerging companies, is the best place for innovators to present fresh ideas to an audience of the travel industry's most savvy travel executives and investors. Approved Battleground contestants will demonstrate their innovations to a panel of sometimes ruthless and uncensored judges, and the cheers or jeers of a live audience. Only six companies will take the stage. In the end, one company will be crowned the EMEA Travel Innovator of the Year. The winner is invited to demonstrate in the Summit at The Phocuswright Conference taking place November 13, 2018.
