YourParkingSpace is First to be Crowned BTA’s Entrepreneurs in Business Travel Award Winner
The Business Travel Association (BTA, formerly GTMC) has announced the winner of the 2019 award for innovation at its Overseas Conference in The Netherlands. This year’s winner of the BTA Entrepreneurs in Business Travel Award is YourParkingSpace, an online parking marketplace.
Voted for by delegates at the conference, YourParkingSpace is the first to be crowned under BTA’s fresh rebranding. The winning start-up will benefit from access to BTA’s Partnership programme for 12 months, offering the team exposure to, and support from, the BTA’s broad range of TMC Members and Industry Partners. The innovative start-up secured the win after successfully pitching their product that offers over 350,000 parking spaces to rent throughout the UK. A user-friendly API allows seamless integration into TMC booking platforms.
The BTA’s Entrepreneurs in Business Travel Award saw five inspiring start-up companies battle it out on stage at the conference which took place from 30 June-2 July 2019 in the Netherlands.
This year’s conference was held at the historic Grand Hotel Huis ter Duin in Noordwijk, along the Dutch coast. The event gathered speakers from across the industry and beyond, shared insights and discussed “What’s Next” for business travel, sustainability, distribution and the wider UK economy.
Adrian Parkes, CEO, BTA comments:
“Congratulations to YourParkingSpace for grabbing this year’s Entrepreneurs in Business Travel Award at the 2019 BTA Overseas Conference. We first developed the awards last year to recognise the incredible pool of innovation and entrepreneurship in the business travel sector, and this year’s winner certainly represents the full entrepreneurial spirit of the award. It is really important that the BTA supports and nurtures start up talent in our industry and gives exposure and opportunity to new technologies, products and services that will benefit the business traveller, our industry partners and BTA member TMCs.”
Harrison Woods, co-founder and CEO, YourParkingSpace adds:
“It’s an incredible honour to receive this award and we are looking forward to embracing the opportunity that comes with the partnership we have won. We’re confident that YourParkingSpace can deliver a parking management solution to TMCs and the BTA community, to better provide its clients and business travellers with a seamless experience.”
