Friday, 8 March 2019 • Berlin, Germany • 12:00 - 13:00

eTravel Startup Day • Hall 6.1, eTravel Stage

Five companies – carefully selected by Phocuswright’s experienced team of innovation analysts – have just six minutes each to demonstrate their travel innovation in front of the live audience. The Dragons – a judging panel of executives with keen insight and expertise – provide feedback to each innovator and determine the winning company. Just one demonstrator will be crowned "the most innovative" by the judges' decision and win a ticket to attend Phocuswright Europe (15 – 16 May in Amsterdam) along with the premier European Online Travel Overview research report.
