Sabre has been awarded the ‘Best New Technology of the Year’ accolade at the 2016 China Travel & Meetings Industry Awards (Leisure Travel) hosted by Travel Weekly China.

The annual China Travel & Meetings Industry Awards recognise excellence in the China travel industry and outstanding contributions to tourism by companies across Asia Pacific, as voted by readers and members of the industry. The selection criteria champion product innovation and R&D, industry knowledge and outstanding performance to drive competitive advantage.

Serving customers operating in 160 countries, Sabre technology books over 2,000 trips every minute. Great technology underpins our business, drives our customers’ businesses and powers the US$7 trillion dollar travel industry. As we approach the one year anniversary of Sabre’s Asia Pacific expansion, our local footprint, which extends across 31 markets, combined with the global Sabre network advantage and a US$1 billion-plus annual technology and product development spend, puts us in the strongest position yet to continue unlocking new technologies that shape the future traveller experience.

We are extremely grateful for the continued support from the travel industry as we introduce new solutions to keep travel companies ahead with today’s hyper-connected, mobile, travellers.  Thank you to our customers and partners across the region.
