Netherlands-based technology firm Roadmap snagged Business Travel News’ 2015 Innovator Award yesterday at BTN’s Innovate 2015 conference in New York City. Co-founder and CEO Jeroen van Velzen accepted on behalf of his team, which has introduced a corporate travel-oriented solution that blends corporate and consumer mobile travel apps and delivers them in a single app to managed travelers.
The second annual Innovate conference attracted 11 corporate travel innovators to compete for the title. Travel Tech Consulting’s Norm Rose, Microsoft global travel lead Eric Bailey, Oracle global travel director Rita Visser and tripBAM CEO Steve Reynolds—last year’s Innovate winner—judged the competitors and named the winner. Conference attendees cast their votes for People’s Choice, a separate award. Roadmap won both titles.
