The ‘Ones to Watch’ list of 100 companies is published annually by the CIC with support from Digital Catapult, Facebook, Moore Kingston Smith and UKRI (AHRC) to highlight such breakthrough CreaTech businesses from across the UK. The list was selected by a panel of industry leaders, funding bodies, and experts from across the creative disciplines, and in service organisations in support of the creative industries. The campaign delivers high growth in investment and jobs in new emerging areas, which is invaluable support for companies involved.

“We are truly delighted to be amongst the winners of the CreaTech “Ones to Watch” for 2021. This pivotal project forms part of our survival and recovery after 20 months of not trading, therefore to be finally getting the recognition for this project that I truly believe in, is amazing news,” says e-VOYAGES Group founder and CEO Emmanuelle Spriet, a key industry figure and spokesperson in the heritage and tourism sector. “This project is close to my heart because it is all about collaboration, helping each other during difficult times, and building resilience amongst the tourism community. This nomination it’s not just about ourselves, but also those who are part of our supply chain, and to be recognized by a panel of experts will give us the visibility that we need. The team and I are all very proud of our achievement and look we forward to sharing our successes with our clients and partners.”
