The International Air Transport Association's (IATA) latest passenger survey has found that most travellers are confident about the safety of air travel and support mask-wearing in the near term. However, a majority have been found to be frustrated with the "hassle factor" around Covid-19 protocols, including confusion and uncertainty about travel rules, testing requirement, and excessive test costs.
A jury of leading brand-side marketers will meet virtually next week to select the winner of the prestigious CMO Pencil Award. The award honours the marketer behind the world's single most impactful idea on a brand's business from the past year based on biggest winners in the recent One Show 2021.

Per The One Show judging rules, jury members abstain from voting on work done by or for their own company.
Kevin Swanepoel, CEO of The One Club, said, “It’s a tremendous honor for a CMO to be recognised by their peers with this prestigious award. This jury of global marketing leaders will look for work that takes an innovative, bold stance and has the greatest positive impact on a brand and its bottom line.”
He added that the honour is unique for The One Show in that all its other awards are given to the creative team, agency, or brand, whereas the CMO Pencil is presented to the individual responsible for recognising and shepherding great work to life.
