What is Launchpad?

The Launchpad area will be returning once again to the Business Travel Show in 2018 to help buyers source the very latest in industry innovation. It further supports and promotes start-ups as well as new businesses in the business travel arena.

The Launchpad will also host the Travel Technology Disrupt Awards, which are open to all Launchpad exhibitors. Finalists will take part in a Dragon’s Den style pitching session during which they will have an opportunity to present their innovation on stage at the show.

The winner, who will be crowned on Thursday 22 February 2018, will receive:

  • Extensive pre and post show publicity, including PR through media partners and the show newsletter sent to pre-reg attendees
  • A free stand for the 2019 show worth £8,000

With one of the main drivers for buyers attending the Business Travel Show being to discover innovative new products and solutions, Launchpad will make it possible for new ventures to reach thousands of European key buyers who have the potential to make a huge difference to their future success, as well as making travellers' lives easier.

Our 2017 winners were FairFly for Business Travel Show and Flyto in Travel Technology Europe.
