Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) are technologies with a large potential to add value to the tourism industry. 

For instance, they allow tourists to experience a destination virtually before they even arrive, or digitally enhance a real-world scene on-site, which is increasingly appreciated by the younger generation. AR and VR are giving opportunities to tourism businesses to present and promote tourism products lively, while the potential customer might still be sitting at home on his/her couch only dreaming about a trip to your destination. Both AR and VR technologies will boost revenue through promoting existing businesses or creating new digital tourism products.

During this webinar we will introduce you to the possibilities these technologies offer to the tourism sector and present you two practical use cases for your inspiration.
