tourism for the future

There are 1,3 billion persons travelling per year worldwide, if we consider domestic travel, there are 6,2 billion persons traveling yearly. If we create a small positive change in this sector, imagine what a huge impact we can make on the whole society. Thus, we believe that tourism could become the driving force to create a HUTURE. But only together we can achieve that. People have always been traveling with the aim to experience something new. Throughout the history tourism business has been adapting to social and technological advancements. In the era of digitalisation and rapid technological development, one of the world's largest economic sectors is facing a new challenge and it needs to adapt again. Fast.

There are many burning issues that deal with tourism for the future.
