Project Summary

During the past decade, ‘digital transformation’ has steadily impacted the tourism ecosystem by altering how journeys are planned, booked and experienced. While the outbreak of the COVID-19 devasted the tourism sector to its core, it has also accelerated the digital uptake in general. This current era of the pandemic, where international tourism still remains at a near stop, presents a prime opportunity for the tourism sector to evaluate and identify how to better use and integrate new and innovative technologies into the sector and move towards a safe recovery. 

This self-funded project consists of a workshop in a hybrid format (3 September 2021) and aims to identify best practices in digitalization and determine appropriate strategies for the adoption of innovative technologies in tourism and to disseminate the findings to the APEC region and provide an opportunity for both policy makers and industry players to better understand the impact of fast-paced digital transformation and implications for the tourism sector by exploring the latest trends of new and innovative technology used in tourism promotion, destination management, the traveler journey, and niche tourism such as the theme parks (attractions) and the MICE industry.
