Brandworld Media in partnership with Technology Mirror is organising the first ever TOURISM AND TECHNOLOGY HACKATHON AND AWARD NIGHT in Nigeria with the theme: “BUILLDING A NEW ECOSYSTEM FOR TOURISM IN NIGERIA”.
The future of Tourism is Digital. With the arrival of disruptive brands like AirBnB,Uber, Amadeus, Booking.com etc. The Tourism landscape globally has changed irrevocably.
The Tourism ecosystem in Nigeria is evolving rapidly and now is the right time to connect and attract the best brains using technology as a launch pad to change the narratives.
There are new intersections for African narratives and opportunities in Afrotourism. Technology is an open avenue which creatives can explore to build businesses and create opportunities for prosperity around them.
Tourism brings new patterns and changes to the landscape, such as globalization, a phenomenon whose impact is not limited to big cities. The influence of globalization is very clear in the hospitality sector, for example when you can find similar hotel rooms, restaurants and services– whether it be in Lagos,Accra ,Nairobi,London, Paris, Hong Kong, China, or New York,this is the influence of Technology at play.
Our theme for this year as enunciated above aims to bring to the roundtable all stakeholders connected to the Tourism and Technology business in Nigeria, and through presentations and panel discussions, throw more light on this aspect of technology innovation business for the benefit of consumers.
The Hackaton would include a competition to select 3 winning innovations that can offer disruption to the Tourism sector and the evening would be rounded up with Awards and Dinner.
