Location
CityCube Berlin, Auditorium A4/A5

Tours & Activities are a strategic mega topic among in-destination services. All the "big players" in the industry are massively pushing into the "Technology, Tours & Activities" segment - and for good reasons: Tourists all over the world want special experiences in their destinations, they expect tailor-made offers and are prepared to spend more money on them. How can this huge potential be tapped, and how can the technological challenges be overcome? Are we experiencing a "quantum leap" in the individualization of travel offers, and can travel providers finally go back to differentiating themselves in terms of the quality of their offers? Can Tours & Activities offers even facilitate solutions to fundamental industry problems like Overtourism?
