Digital Platforms and the Future of Tourism: A World Tourism Day Celebration

Follow the event on Twitter #Tourism4Dev

Tourism can be a powerful driver of development, but digital platforms are disrupting the tourism sector—impacting the way destinations facilitate tourism, develop product, gather data, access markets, and attract visitors. This disruption has ripple effects across the tourism industry, making it challenging for emerging markets striving to leverage tourism for development. The theme for this year’s 2018 World Tourism Day is tourism and the digital transformation. This event will mark this special day and bring together technology experts, destination managers, business leaders and tourism experts to share the opportunities and challenges that digital platforms present for sustainable tourism development.
