Around 1,500 guests will experience the event live on location, with thousands more worldwide following the happenings via live streams and media reports.
Master and Servant

The Digital Revolution in Tourism
AI and Big Data are increasingly manifesting themselves in the customer journey of travelers: they assist when problems occur, provide context for map searches, and help overcome language barriers.

Are there differences between the East and the West? Where do privacy issues accentuate themselves? The “TOURISM” track explores these and other questions with top-class speakers.
