This year's finalists include:

Arise

Arise enables Hotels, TMCs and OBTs to improve the traveler booking experience by acting as a secure, shared database between hotels and their distribution partners. This enables better rate synchronization, fresher content and real‐time availability.

Our distributed ledger technology provides a single source of truth that automates booking and commission reconciliation as well as providing real‐time visibility on contracted rate loading and utilization.

We believe in a future where hotels own their distribution networks, cutting out intermediaries and their fees. Our goal is to provide an effortless path for that transition.

Cytric by Amadeus

In recent years, online collaboration and hybrid work environments have been crucial to the continued success of businesses. Despite these changes, travel and expense for corporate travel hasn’t moved with the times.  Today, travellers must use and switch between multiple platforms and apps to log-on, search, book, pay and expense. Cytric for Teams enables employees to find better options to collaborate and manage travel and expenses. Employees can benefit from a fully immersive experience in the modern workplace thanks to the usage of travel and expense data across Microsoft’s ecosystem. When there is a need to collaborate or travel, employees can focus on the trip experience and not the logistics of it. Imagine having all your travel-related tasks in your Teams application. No additional apps or login access to remember, allowing you to share trip details and minimize travel spend on the trip, but also track travel expenses within a personal dashboard in Teams.

Corporate Traveller

We live in a world of instant gratification, where you can book a ride in seconds, watch TV on-demand or order same-day delivery with one tap. That ease of use and intuitive user experience is increasingly an expectation in the corporate world. Not just for big enterprises, but for small and medium-sized businesses too.  Our challenge was to create a corporate booking experience tailored especially to our SME customers. It needed to be quick, simple, easy to use, with all the content our customers need in one place and delivering tangible cost savings. After all, our SME clients tend to be resource poor in terms of people, time and budget.     We tapped into our intrinsic knowledge of the SME travel space and our three decades of industry expertise to come up with the ultimate solution: Melon.  Melon ticks all the boxes an SME wants from an online booking tool. While there may be other options available, none have been built specifically for an SME’s needs, or blend that personal touch and dedicated customer service that our customers want.
