The Travel Changemakers Awards Judges Panel has been announced by ATTIA.

Who will serve on the judging panel for the first Travel Changemakers Awards in 2023 will be revealed by the Asia Travel Technology Industry Association (ATTIA) and Web in Travel (WiT).

The winners of the Awards, which will be announced at WiT Singapore, 2-4 October 2023, are innovators who have used technology to improve post-pandemic recovery efforts. Those who receive awards must show that they have respected the environment, engaged meaningfully with local communities, or found undiscovered attractions for tourists to enjoy. They applaud the use of existing resources rather than the construction of new ones and the way in which they show how diversity and inclusion are essential for improving the situation.

These future leaders of the industry make up the esteemed panel.
