Discover the 56 players, places and bold new concepts moving the industry into the future
There has never been a more important moment to recognise those shaping the future of travel. It's not just due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which transformed the industry, but also because of the racial reckoning of the last few years, which has reinforced the need for greater access and representation in travel; the rapid advance of technology; and the climate crisis. For the very first time, we're honouring people and businesses who are tackling these issues with fresh, creative thinking to bring us into the future across the realms of tech, design, sustainability, community, inclusion, accessibility and conservation. From cities focused on urban regeneration and sweeping conservation programs in rural areas to carbon-conscious hotels and airlines introducing new inclusivity measures, these 56 innovators are changing the way we travel.
