During Battleground, 16 companies have six minutes each to demonstrate their innovations to a panel of sometimes ruthless and uncensored judges, and the cheers or jeers of a live audience.

In the end, only the two most promising companies win the right to move on to be part of Summit at The Phocuswright Conference, where they will demonstrate on the main stage in front of the most discerning audience in travel.
