At the 2nd of April 2015 Licere (study association of MLE) and Pangea (study association of BTO) organized the very first Tourism Innovation Day. During this afternoon innovators and new enterprises in the tourism industry presented their ideas and discussed their projects and concepts with students from both MLE and BTO tourism programs of Wageningen University and NHTV Breda. We are proud to say that the afternoon was filled with inspiration and useful discussions for both students and invited entrepreneurs.
Six organizations participated this first edition:
Five of these companies are already mentioned in the trending list, launched at the Holiday Fair as successful newcomers in terms of the 2015 trend “social travel”. There is a growing desire among travelers for an unique travel experience, interaction with locals in a direct and sustainable way (see Travelnext.nl).
If you are interested to participate as an organization and have an inspiring idea to share for upcoming edition next year, please get into touch with Licere or Pangea.
