The VisitEurope application was awarded the UNWTO Ulysses Award for Innovation in Research and Technology. VisitEurope is a tablet app for iOS and a website optimized for any mobile device 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. This initiative positively impacts the competitiveness of the European tourism sector by giving local destinations and services further visibility, while facilitating their interaction with global consumers in new digital channels like mobile.
The VisitEurope app was developed by Amadeus for the European Travel Commission (ETC) in partnership with the European Commission (EC). Eduardo Santander, Executive Director of the European Travel Commission received the award at the International Tourism Trade Fair – FITUR 2015.
