Em­brac­ing Tech­nol­ogy

TravTalk - Middle East - - GUEST COLUMN -

Tech­nol­ogy has changed the way in which busi­ness is car­ried out in ev­ery scope of work. As all roads lead to Berlin to gather at the largest net­work­ing event, the new tech­no­log­i­cal method­ol­ogy used in the fields of travel, tourism and hos­pi­tal­ity is shared by var­i­ous sem­i­nars held to ed­u­cate the in­dus­try part­ners. The world will unite at ITB Berlin to find so­lu­tions and ad­dress con­cerns faced by the in­dus­try.

A key com­po­nent of the event will be the new ar­eas in fo­cus by trade ex­perts like over­tourism and lack of rooms. Ear­lier this year, a re­cent re­port urged tourists to avoid cer­tain pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tions due to con­straints in ac­com­mo­dat­ing them. The world is in­deed a big place for ev­ery­one to ex­plore; it is time for a change so that new places of in­ter­est are found for peo­ple to ex­pe­ri­ence and en­joy. Ex­perts at var­i­ous tourism fo­rums have shared that ven­tur­ing into new des­ti­na­tions is a pos­i­tive way for­ward while en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to go that ex­tra mile in achiev­ing it. Dubai’s vi­sion of tourism is one which is way for­ward as it has al­ready looked at tourism op­por­tu­ni­ties in an­other planet al­to­gether in Mars. In var­i­ous tourism fo­rums, it has been shared that ven­tur­ing to new des­ti­na­tions is a pos­i­tive way for­ward, thereby en­cour­ag­ing peo­ple to go that ex­tra mile in achiev­ing it.

Hy­per­loops is set to be a game changer in terms of rev­o­lu­tion­is­ing the trans­porta­tion sec­tor in the next gen­er­a­tion. Get­ting from point A to B should then be a mat­ter of sec­onds or min­utes as op­posed to the many hours spent in get­ting to the fi­nal des­ti­na­tion. Dubai and a few other des­ti­na­tions have al­ready started work­ing on driver­less ve­hi­cles and fly­ing car con­cepts for the fu­ture. Cur­rently, at an ini­tial stage of devel­op­ment, the con­cept will be much looked for­ward to and one that would save time. In this con­text, the in­tro­duc­tion of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence is an­other com­po­nent that will en­sure a more sus­tained path and change the hu­man ex­pe­ri­ence in ev­ery as­pect of life.
