The Battleground, designed for early-stage startups, is the best place for innovators to demonstrate fresh ideas in an intimate setting, in front of pre-conference attendees.
During the Battleground, applicants have ten minutes each to demonstrate their innovations to a panel of sometimes ruthless and uncensored judges, and the cheers or jeers of a live audience of conference attendees. In the end, only the three most promising companies win the right to move on to be part of the Summit, where they demonstrate their groundbreaking innovations on the main stage.
The demonstrator package provides startups with an affordable and not-to-be-missed opportunity to connect with the travel industry's most influential audience. Your unicorn journey starts here!
