The Travel Industry Association (TIA) announced the first annual TravelCom Res-Expo Innovator Awards to recognize those special companies whose outstanding innovations in the areas of technology, e-commerce and distribution have transformed their business and had a broad impact across the travel industry.

TIA is inviting travel companies from across the travel industry, both new and established, to submit their product and service innovations, or nominate the innovations of others for consideration for one of two TravelCom Res-Expo Innovator Awards:
  • TravelCom Res-Expo New Innovator Award – for companies less than five years old
  • TravelCom Res-Expo Established Innovator Award – for companies in business at least five years
A successful entry should demonstrate how a particular innovation in technology or distribution–whether in the area of product development, customer service, marketing or elsewhere–has had a substantial and tangible impact on the company, its marketplace and the industry as a whole.

TIA has assembled a panel of top travel executives representing the full spectrum of the travel industry to review all entries. TIA's judges panel will recognize five finalists and present both Innovator Awards at this year's TravelCom Res-Expo conference in Las Vegas on April 6, 2007.

In addition to being recognized at the upcoming TravelCom Res-Expo conference in Las Vegas in front of hundreds of travel industry leaders and media, TravelCom Res-Expo Innovators Award winners will be invited to join the judging panel and serve as presenters to next year's winners. TIA will provide award recipients with free attendance passes to the TravelCom conference in 2008.

Entries must be submitted by March 12. Guidelines and official entry forms are available on the event Web site.
