Beyond ICT innovation and efficiency in the tourism sector are united in a general context that aims to achieve smart management of tourist destinations. And this means doing so in line with the principles of sustainable urban and territorial development, social responsibility and the involvement of businesses, citizens and public authorities. In this context, the need for smart tourism management has arisen, as tourism has become a center of attention for politicians, government and private managers and civil society. Tourism today is a structural economic vector and an element that can revitalize cities and regions. In this context, effective management of territorial knowledge is needed, which facilitates decision-making and better adaptation of tourism to existing structures. Smart management of tourist destinations today is a reality, with the design of tourism development models including both the needs of the population and the environmental challenges and constraints.
The presentations will focus on the theoretical concepts, techniques and tools that contribute to the development of management models that are comprehensive, coordinated, responsible and effective in terms of tourism scenarios. Smart management must be able to design models for affordable, high-quality tourist destinations that improve competitiveness and provide sustainability in the long run.
