Programme

Technological developments are having a significant impact on the world of tourism. Distribution and hospitality models have changed, as has the tourist’s “story”, thanks to the internet, which makes it easier for people to interact and socialise online.
Travel is increasingly an experience, which must be remembered and recounted as unforgettable.  What will happen in this arena will anticipate the near future, which is now on its way...in fact, it is already here.
