The intersection of technology and tourism is about to be celebrated in a grand way with the announcement of “The AI for Tourism Awards 2024.”
This pioneering competition, a collaboration between SEGITTUR and FITUR, is set to take place within the innovative environment of Fitur Know-How & Export. It aims to honor the burgeoning influence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) in enhancing the travel and tourism industry’s operations and customer experiences.
AI has already begun to reshape the tourism landscape, offering smarter, more personalized travel planning, booking, and in-trip experiences. The competition seeks to spotlight AI’s role across various facets of tourism, including personalized experiences, efficient booking systems, customer service enhancements, chatbot integrations, facial recognition for security, and real-time translation services.
The motivation behind “The AI for Tourism Awards 2024” is to identify and celebrate the most innovative AI solutions that improve the tourist experience at all stages of travel, whether it’s before, during, or after their trip. Open to international and national participants, the competition welcomes entries from all tourism-related verticals, such as hotel chains, airlines, travel agencies, and tourist destinations.
The call for entries is now open, with a submission deadline of November 30. The awards ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, January 25, 2024, at Fitur Know-How & Export, where the most innovative AI solutions in tourism will be showcased to the world.
A jury comprising experts from the tourism and technology sectors, chaired by SEGITTUR, will evaluate entries based on technological innovation, usability, enhancement of the user experience, originality, and the degree of innovation. The winning solution will be one that not only demonstrates advanced AI capabilities but also shows a clear benefit to the tourism experience.
Those interested in participating can apply through the online form available on the SEGITTUR website. This competition is more than just a showcase; it’s a call to action for tech enthusiasts and travel professionals to bring forward solutions that will define the future of travel.
“The AI for Tourism Awards 2024” is not just a testament to the transformative power of AI in tourism but also a beacon for future-focused innovation in the travel industry.
