Webinar on the Role of Technology and Innovation to revive tourism

School of Engineering and Technology, K. R. Mangalam University organized an Online Webinar on the role of technology and innovation to revive tourism on 23rd June 2022. The event took place virtually on Facebook from 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM. The aim of the webinar was to explore the technological solutions and opportunities to revive the travel industry after COVID-19. Since tourism is strongly correlated to the origin of the latest crisis (traveling is the main reason why the coronavirus has spread across the world), the biggest challenge to the sector is how to reinvent itself and move forward with bold, innovative ideas that include advanced technology adoption. The webinar aims to spread awareness about the technological solutions in the tourism sector.

The discussion revolved around how Information Technology has played an important role in the hospitality and tourism industry over the last decade and post COVID-19 scenarios. Technology has helped reduce costs, enhance operational efficiency, and improve services and customer experience. Both customers and businesses can benefit from improved communication, reservations, and guest service systems. The event turned out to be successful by fulfilling its aim of knowledge about the application of technology in tourism in an interesting way to the students which will remain fresh in their memories for a long.
