WTM hosts TravelMole tech awards

For the second year World Travel Market is hosting the Travel Technology Awards with TravelMole, highlighting the latest digital developments that have created the most impact in the industry over the past year.  The awards provide an interesting yardstick for the fast-changing world of online travel with more categories added this year.

New for 2006 are awards for destination management and the most innovative travel technology stand within the dedicated technology section at WTM.

Fiona Jeffery, Managing Director of WTM, said:” World Travel Market has now established a thriving travel technology section.  The new awards this year serve to underline how technology fuels innovation in our industry and the important role we can play in promoting it.”

The 2006 Travel Technology Awards were inaugurated last year to recognise excellence in innovation, service and performance across the many sectors of the travel and tourism industry which are dependent upon technology companies.

Graham McKenzie, chief executive of TravelMole, commented: “We are delighted to be involved with the Travel Technology Awards for a second year at WTM.  This year they will reflect the huge explosion in online and mobile services and heighten awareness of the benefits they bring.”
