CNR, the Italian National Research Council, will preview at TTG Travel Experience a study on the trends of ´Tourism 4’. Tourism 4.0 represents the evolution of hospitality services thanks to the enabling technologies of the IoT, big data and cloud computing for which specific NRRP (National Recovery and Resilience Plan) funds of 2.4 bn are provided. The CNR study will be structured in a series of contributions from the academic and business world of Italy and the Mediterranean area.

Digital Innovation for the tourism of the future

The Digital Innovation Observatory for Cultural Heritage and Activities of the Politecnico di Milano will explore “The digital journey of the cultural tourist, between metaverse, NFT and never-ending experience”. The aim is to develop tools enabling the enjoyment of cultural content in museums and theaters; information search, purchase, and the tools used during and after the visit. Also the theme of the digitization of business models returns together with servitization in the work of the surveys of the Digital Innovation Observatory for Tourism of the School of Management of the Politecnico di Milano. Lastly, Peppino De Rose, economist and professor of Tourism Business and International Markets at the University of Calabria, will discuss the opportunities that the NRRP and the 2021-2027 EU funding package reserve for the digital and sustainable development of Italian tourism.

Nature and design at SIA Hospitality 2022

The schedule of events organized in the Design and Camping Arenas during the three days of the show includes “Micro-Hospitality in Nature. Intelligent and reversible architectures for nomadic travelers”. The desire for open air leads to designing outdoor spaces in a different way; landscape architect Davide Giorgi and Gianpietro Sacchi will deal with this topic in two conferences.

Lastly, architect Paolo Scoglio presents his eco-sustainable architecture modules. The Ne[s]t, his practice, specializes in structures in harmony with nature for glamping enthusiasts. These structures, despite their spartan appearance, are extremely refined environments for a new cocooning concept.
