Today, Queen Letizia of Spain travelled to Seville for the inauguration of the first edition of the tourism innovation congress “Tourist Innovation Summit”. The summit aims to become the largest international forum for innovation for the tourism sector, with the participation of more than 5,000 executives and professionals around the world together with leading firms in the technology ecosystem and startups aimed at the tourism industry.
Upon arrival at the FIBES enclosure in Seville, Queen Letizia was greeted by the Government authorities and summit organizers. TIS – Tourism Innovation Summit will host professionals from all areas of the tourism sector (travel agencies, restaurants and shops, leisure parks, hospitality, etc.) and will have a congress agenda designed for each professional profile.
The annual Tourism Innovation Summit is a space for knowledge and reinvention of the sector, which combines a broad congress agenda in which the great international experts who define tourism trends will participate.
The event began with a two minutes silence observed to mark the occasion of the International Day Against Gender Violence. Later talking about the observed silence, Letizia said, “it’s a way of symbolizing the commitment of a society that, from all spheres, expresses its resounding rejection of this violence and works to eliminate it”.
This new event will be held annually with the aim of attracting investment to the city and being the world showcase for tourism technology. Seville has been chosen to host this event due to its vocation and ambition to create an ecosystem that turns the city into a laboratory of innovations and a technological centre to develop new exportable projects to the rest of the world.
The Andalusian capital is the third city with the most tourists in Spain and offers a large hotel, cultural and leisure offer that make it an ideal enclave to celebrate this event.
Under the slogan, “Where Technology meets Tourism”, the 5,000 executives and professionals of the sector who plan to gather the first edition of the TIS – Tourism Innovation Summit, will be able to learn about the most outstanding technological innovations in the world during the 3 days.
In addition, professionals will be able to see real cases of how technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT), Virtual Reality, Big Data, Blockchain or 5G are transforming the sector and discover trends and success stories from the leading professionals.
