The good, the bad and the ugly – the future of tourism and technology
While UNWTO predicts 1.8 billion international arrivals by 2030, massive growth numbers are increasingly met with worry. With overtourism and flygskam as key trends in tourism, how will the future of tourism unfold? As travellers seek the authentic, off-the-beaten track, how will destinations enable a balanced and diverse tourism development?

In this presentation, we will explore the future trends of technology in travel and how technology holds potential to both amplify the human face of travel and enable a more balanced tourism development. Meanwhile, no cure without risks and technology holds potential to also amplify the ‘tourism problem’. So, where do we go from here in the future of tourism and technology?…
