Innovation Faceoff


Innovation Faceoff

Don’t miss a unique opportunity to be part of the Business Travel Innovation Faceoff sponsored by FairFly, which kick-starts both days of the Business Travel Show 2020.  

From 9-10am, an audience of only 150 invited corporate travel/procurement buyers will get to hear eight presentations of cutting-edge products, technologies and services all developed to address key industry challenges.

Each presenter will have just seven minutes of uninterrupted airtime to demonstrate how their innovation supports managed business travel, meetings or business travellers. Then, after a four-minute Q&A from our expert panel of judges, it's the audience’s turn to grill them in their own Q&A.

The judges are:

  • AstraZeneca Global Category Lead Kerrie Henshaw-Cox
  • Capgemini Global Category Manager Travel & Meetings Katharina Navarro
  • Fairfly Co-Founder and CTO Ami Goldenberg
  • Microsoft Travel Technology Manager Steve Clagg


Two winners will be selected; one by the judges and one selected by you and your fellow buyers, and they will be announced at 1.10pm on the 27 February.
