Lumo has won a fierce nine-way battle to be crowned the Business Travel Innovator of the year in the Business Travel Innovation Faceoff Europe at the recent Business Travel Show Europe.

The competition highlights the latest developments in business travel in a gripping competition that puts the most forward-thinking suppliers in front of a panel of expert judges and a live audience of travel buyers and bookers.
Nine business travel suppliers fought to take home the Business Travel Innovator Award as they showcased their cutting-edge products, technology and services during 7-minute presentations designed to address industry challenges and support managed business travel, meetings or business travellers.
When asked what it means to win the Innovation Faceoff, Bala Chandran, Founder & CEO, Lumo said: “We are thrilled to have won – it’s a validation of all the hard work we have put in since we started. The feedback we have had from the judges and the audience will really help us to evolve our product in the future. Congratulations to my fellow nominees – it is great company to be in and we look forward to returning next year.”
Lumo is an AI-powered flight disruption management tool that enables the entire travel ecosystem to proactively plan for and manage disruptions. Its microservice-based model delivers predictions through APIs and dashboards, allowing customers to integrate our predictions with traveller- and agent-facing tools to help travellers, arrangers, meetings/events planners, and travel agents proactively avoid disruptions instead of simply reacting to them
Judge Steve Clagg, Travel Technology Manager, Microsoft, added: “It is always inspiring to see new innovators entering the sector. The standard of entrants this year was exceptionally high and each entrant has proved themselves capable of moving the market forward. Congratulations to all nominees and in particular the team at Lumo – we all look forward to watching them evolve and grow in the future.”
