Tourism in 2022. How did you imagine it? We bet, nothing like what we’ve experienced the past two years.
Many things have changed and that is precisely what has been discussed lately.
Doinn has been present at two key events recently: The travel innovation summit and FITUR.
We tell you a little about the events:
The travel innovation summit is a private event organized by a group of investors: Top Seed Lab.
With TOP characters in the world of tourism: Viajes el corte Inglés, Mélia, UNWTO and many others.
Discussing tourism trends and separating them from simple passing occurrences. Was the main subject of the event.
The themes that will really arise in the different tourism subsectors.
In the case of FITUR, surely you already know about this great event.
FITUR is a world-class event that has positioned itself as a tool for tourism. Its mission is to contribute to the recovery of tourism and grow the sector.
That’s exactly why we thought it important to write and discuss with you the trends, learnings and many interesting facts happening in tourism today.
It is important to highlight that these topics have been commented on in both events, which is why they’ve been selected for this article.
Sure there are many more things happening in this world but without a doubt, the topics that we deal with today here will continue to give something to talk about.
The digital transformation has no turning back
If there is something in which both events agree, it is that digitization in tourism will not go anywhere.
The pandemic has pushed all industries towards digital.
Terms like: smart tourism, smart travel, smart cities, are just a few that are constantly being heard.
And as a consequence of the pandemic, there was a great explosion of tourism towards the digital world.
And we are not just talking about using social networks or creating a website.
If not how new disruptive business models are transforming tourism for the future.
Below 3 examples of new businesses that are digital, disruptive, and innovative:
