Cette année, l’Organisation Mondiale du Tourisme (OMT) a placé cette journée sous le thème du « Tourisme et la transformation numérique ». La transformation numérique désigne le processus qui permet aux entreprises d’intégrer toutes les technologies digitales disponibles au sein de leurs activités. Les changements dans les attentes des clients et les tendances mondiales obligent le secteur du tourisme à adapter les modèles d’entreprise et d’exploitation et à se tourner de plus en plus vers le numérique en vue d’améliorer la satisfaction de la clientèle et la performance opérationnelle. Le numérique permet une meilleure vision de l’audience, augmente la visibilité et renforce les canaux de ventes.Le Programme
