Importance of ICT and Innovation in Regional Tourism strategy
We strongly believe that the future of our destination will be shaped through ICT information exchange. Impacts of online information (social) portals like tripadvisor and booking.com are huge and will become bigger. If you do not innovate, you run the risk of becoming obsolete.
