About the event
Speakers include international experts, hospitality practitioners, and tourism representatives, who will discuss “How can dataspaces contribute to the tourism development in Europe through citizen-centred offerings?” The focus will be on the requirements and the necessity for a secure, decentralised, and civic-oriented European Tourism data space.
The experts will unfold the future initiatives of the most prestigious tourism destinations, regulations, and architecture for the tourism data space system. The event will culminate in three sessions designed to create an atmosphere of cross-border collaboration that will help to create a sustainable data infrastructure for the tourism industry.
The aim is to bring together diversified groups and sectors that will eventually realise the overarching mission of Gaia-X to establish digital sovereignty across various sectors, including tourism, based on the principles of transparency, openness, and trust.
The event is set against a background of a recovering tourism sector following the Covid-19 pandemic and the effect this had in accelerating enterprise migration to the public cloud, with most businesses reaping the benefits of digitalisation. Gaia-X will examine the future of the European data ecosystem concerning tourism across enterprises in a post-Covid digital Europe, bringing together international experts from the public and private sectors.
This is the third event of the Gaia-X data space series with the title ‘’How can dataspaces contribute to the tourism development in Europe through citizen-centred offerings?”and follows the earlier Mobility Data Space and Health Data Space events that initiated this program.
