I’m sure you have noticed, but winter in the Northern Hemisphere is awards season and not just for the film and television industry. So why are people starting to call Amadeus the Meryl Streep of travel technology?Amadeus Awards
You can win an award once and it could be considered a stroke of luck. You can win an award a second time and people start to take notice. But winning Best Technology Provider three times in a row in the United Kingdom and Ireland – in as many months – that’s the stuff of champions!
At the end of 2014, travel professionals belonging to the Scottish Passenger Agents’ Association (SPAA) voted Amadeus Best Technology Provider in Glasgow. Then in January, travel agents from across the UK voted Amadeus Best Technology Provider at the Globe Travel Awards, held at a prestigious hotel on London’s Park Lane. To top it off, travel agents in the Republic of Ireland also voted Amadeus Best Technology Provider thanks to the unstinting efforts of the local team located in Dublin and Cork (for the 5th year in a row!). At this rate, we might need a new trophy cabinet.
Globally, Amadeus has been nominated for many industry awards but we never take an award win for granted (as you can tell by the smiles on the faces of the team at Amadeus UK based at Gatwick). A win for Amadeus is a vote of confidence in our track record of investing in technology that is centred on the needs of our travel industry customers and the travellers they serve.
With technology rapidly becoming embedded into the fabric of everyday life, Amadeus, which sits at the cross roads of travel and technology, has an exciting role to play. Together, let’s shape the future of travel.
