I WCOMTOTEC20 - 1st Workshop in Communication, Tourism and Technology

 

WorkShop site for submissions

Tourism is probably one of the activities that have been most influenced by Information and Communication Technologies. Advances in this area have generated significant changes not only in promotion and dissemination but also in planning and marketing processes. When we refer to tourism activities, we are talking about experiences, therefore, the use of ICT ceases to be informative and extends to the experiential field through digital resources - videos, virtual reality, games, 360º photographs and virtual tours, among others - mobile and geolocation applications that advise the traveler and allow them to have a first approach to the destination or the tourist product, generating a previous experience that motivates and influences the selection and decision process.

Currently, the user "takes on a major role. He goes from being a mere spectator and consumer of what the Internet offers him to becoming a creator and generator of contents and services... he participates actively" (Nafría, 2008, p. 15). Thus, since tourism is a global activity, the promotion and dissemination of tourist destinations and services had to be adapted and updated to meet the needs of the customer.

In this scenario, communication and information become relevant, and need to be analyzed through the following topics: 

• Digital tourism communication

• Positioning of tourist destinations

• Identity, image, and reputation of tourist destinations

• Tourist behaviour and experiences

• Users and tourist audiences

• Transmedia narratives at the service of tourism
