Tourism + Tech Initiative
One of our goals is to cultivate and propel collaborations between the tourism and tech sectors to spark new innovations, offerings, and product delivery - an endeavor that is more important now than ever for businesses and organizations to be competitive and resilient.
Sparking Tourism 4.0 & Digital Services Support
The Tourism Innovation Lab has partnered with WEtech Alliance to launch Sparking Tourism 4.0, a Community Collaboration Project as part of the Digital Main Street Future Proof Program in Southwestern Ontario.
Leveraging the Lab’s "Spark" Program, Sparking Tourism 4.0 aims to connect tourism businesses and entrepreneurs with technology experts and providers to create and develop new and/or enhanced tourism opportunities, experiences and partnerships in the region to support the futureproofing of the region and the tourism industry.
"Spark" Program finalists in participating regions will be eligible to receive a digital services package valued at up to $10,000 to support technology development and adoption of their project.
Finalists will be asked to provide a response to the question below after the pitch sessions, and then interviews will be held to select one from each participating region to receive the package.
How could technology support the development, implementation, future-proofing, and possible expansion of your idea? If so what kind of technology, and how would you leverage it?
Chatham-Kent (Round 2) - 2 "Spark" Program finalists will be selected to receive the Digital Services Support Package valued at up to $10,000
Windsor Essex (Round 2) - 2 "Spark" Program finalists will be selected to receive the Digital Services Support Package valued at up to $10,000
