People Awards: Meet the Tech Innovator 2022
Travelogix CEO Chris Lewis was humbled by being named Travel Technology Innovator of the Year in the 2022 Business Travel People Awards
Winning the Travel Technology Innovator award for 2022 was a huge personal honour. But more than that, this goes some way to recognise our team here at Travelogix and the efforts that they put in day-to-day. Being recognised by our peers, industry experts, trade press, and colleagues, is genuinely a huge achievement, and at such a prestigious award ceremony hosted by our friends at The Business Travel Magazine. We have been continuously innovating in our space for a decade now; changing the way TMCs view, interact and interpret their data around the globe – so this award nod really does resonate with me and the wider team.
There are a whole host of innovative companies across the business travel ecosystem, so when my name was called, I felt truly humbled by the win, and the occasion more broadly. What a fantastic event with so many industry folks that do their absolute best day-to-day for their companies across the business travel space…Just fantastic.
The Travelogix team were simply over the moon as this is a collective award for all our efforts and innovations across the data management/reporting space in business travel. The award now sits proudly in my garden office at home!
I was taken aback by how many industry friends and peers reached out to me to say congratulations. You really get to understand the togetherness of the industry after an evening like that. It hasn’t impacted my role as such because it is business as usual here at Travelogix; head down with our strategy for 2023. That said, I feel that winning an award of this nature certainly does bring a certain spotlight when winning new business. There’s a badge of honour when even being nominated for a category at the Business Travel People Awards, letting alone winning one.
For anything considering entering this year, do it! Why wouldn’t you!? Recognition is always good to receive, but from industry experts, TMCs and clients – this absolutely resonates the most. To be placed front and centre by such a reputable media outlet is a true honour, and Travelogix will continue to innovate and produce class-leading service in the hope we get considered once more for future awards.
Enter now for the 2023 Business Travel People Awards. Nominations close on March 15.
