VisitEurope application wins UNWTO Ulysses Award for Innovation in Research and Technology
UNWTO distinguished the VisitEurope application with the prestigious Ulysses Award for Innovation in Research and Technology, which honors outstanding initiatives in the use of technology for their significant contribution to the development of competitive and sustainable tourism.
Designed as both a tablet app for iOS and a website optimized for any mobile device, the VisiteEurope application uses innovative technology to provide travellers with a tool to obtain real-time access to information across the entire online travel planning experience; from the initial inspiration phase to the research, booking and sharing processes.
Currently, the application is available globally and has been optimised at an initial stage for the Americas, including the USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Chile, where it is possible to compute the price of long-haul flights to Europe. The VisitEurope app was developed by Amadeus for the European Travel Commission (ETC) in partnership with the European Commission (EC).
