Taking place as part of EyeforTravel North America 2016 at the Palms Las Vegas, successful applications stand the chance to receive much needed advice, funding and exposure against a backdrop of a new wave of innovation in mobile, data and technology. Attracting capital and generating a buzz around a product are among the major challenges facing start-ups today and all successful firms will have the opportunity to pitch in front of the panel of judges and investors, which includes Nancy Hayes, Angel Investor, Golden Seeds, Saad Siddiqui, Investor, Edgewood Management LLC and George R. Arabian, Co-Founder & Managing Partner, Steelhead Ventures, LLC. The lucky top two selected by the judging panel will also have the opportunity to impress over 450+ senior executives from leading travel brands, including Priceline, American Airlines, Hyatt Hotels, TripAdvisor, Skyscanner and Southwest Airlines, during the keynote session on Day 2 of the event. Live voting by the conference attendees will then decide the company to be crowned winner. Not only have previous entries received funding as a result of the Awards, they have also had the opportunity to meet and do business with travel industry peers. To enter costs $1295 and includes access to both days of the TDS N. America conference, as well as the networking opportunities.
