We are trying to do something that has not been done before and the award is recognition that we are heading in the right direction.”

Neil Thomson, EMEA director at Nomadic, said: “The award is a fantastic achievement for everyone associated with Nomadic. There was a great deal of positivity at the ceremony. This will help to raise our profile and highlight how we can support businesses and their workforce mobility, visas and document management processes.”

Other winners on the night included British Airways, Lufthansa Group, United Airlines, LNER, Sixt and the Google American Express Travel Team. Entries were received from organisations across Europe and were assessed by an independent panel of judges – comprised of 25 experienced travel managers. Hosted by the BTN Group, the annual awards event recognises industry leadership, partnership and innovation, and celebrated the industry’s achievements over the past 12 months.

Nomadic recently announced a surge in international activity among energy firms. One of its accomplishments was support for a global subsea business that required 900 visas for work in South America and South East Asia on an extremely tight timescale. The firm supports a broad range of sectors such as finance, media and entertainment. Nomadic has operations in the United States, the UK and Dubai and plans to expand into India and Singapore by the end of the year.
