What is Battleground?

Battleground, designed for early-stage startups, is the best place for innovators to demonstrate fresh ideas to an audience of savvy travel executives and investors. 

Approved Battleground contestants have 10 minutes to demonstrate their innovations to a panel of sometimes ruthless and uncensored judges, and the cheers or jeers of a live audience. In the end, only one company will be crowned the Travel Innovator of the year. The winner is invited to demonstrate at Summit, at The Phocuswright Conference taking place November 8, 2017.

We found being part of the innovation summit very beneficial in raising our profile, resulting in a very successful Phocuswright conference. As always it was a well planned and executed event.
