I think Stayful should get a nod - It's a tech company that can help hotels create a customized app that will help shorten guests time interacting with the hotel staff and actually enjoy their stay

I would like to nominate Business Travel Direct. Business Travel Direct is truly an innovative partner, we’ve really seen the benefits of working in partnership with this forward thinking business. It’s great to work with a company that designs itself for success and knows how to get it

I've chosen to nominate Business Travel Direct because they are a unique TMC that has put a clear emphasis on providing added value to their customers (for example, through fast adoption of innovative fare-auditing technologies). By adopting this approach, Business Travel Direct helps their customers truly secure the lowest prices on travel before, and even after purchase.
