Who are the ITIJ Industry Awards judges?

ITIJ has an expert panel of judges who review the written submissions from finalists – these are industry veterans who really know the ins and outs of travel insurance provision, so are excellently placed to impartially judge which company should be recognised in each category.

What are the judges looking for?

The judges will assess each submission document, looking for details of the company’s performance or growth over the past year, how the company has developed, and/or what made the past 12 months special for the company. The judges will also be looking for a mission statement that reflects how the company views itself within the wider marketplace, how it differs from its competitors, and its future aspirations; plus details of the company’s HR strategy including communication methods, staff training and career development.
