Dubai’s DTCM launches ‘Future of Tourism’ challenge
The Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) of Dubai is looking for ways to continue supporting growth in the tourism industry, make it easier for tourists to plan their trips, and incorporate new technologies.
To anticipate and accommodate the opportunities and advances in tourism, Dubai Tourism, Emaar Hospitality Group and Atlantis Hotel have launched the Future of Tourism Challenge. This programme will activate the startup community and uncover those technologies that will help transform the tourism experience in Dubai. The list includes artificial intelligence, digital ecosystems, augmented reality and blockchain.
Twenty applicants will be selected to pitch on stage at GITEX Future Stars, the largest technology event in The Middle East, Africa and South Asia. The winners will be selected to receive a 50,000 AED cash prize and invited to participate in the four week incubator. DTCM and its partners will actively be serving as mentors to teach the startups about their business challenges, identify pilots and investment opportunities. This programme will be the perfect opportunity for participants to work on specific challenges, sponsored by corporations, with the potential to have a strategic partnership, pilot or contract with one of the sponsoring corporations.
