Catalysts Award Asia 2022

Established in 2015, The Catalyst Awards is one of the pioneer recognitions in the industry that felicitates the passion, efforts and result-driven attitude of the brand-drivers in an organisation. At a time, when companies were winning accolades for its strides, but the people who drive the brand were seldom put in the back seat and remained the unsung heroes, The Catalyst Awards came in as a new wave of change. The awards recognise the trailblazers of the IT industry.

The Catalyst Asia 2022 is all set to recognise and honour the trailblazers in the industry who have been uplifting the brand and reputation of their respective organisations in these difficult times with various cutting-edge initiatives, platforms and market-penetration and truly acting as ‘Catalyst’ in the ever-changing market landscape.
