THEME>>>THE FUTURE FOR TRAVEL AND TOURISM IN AFRICA BIOMETRICS>>> ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE>>>DATA Brandworld Media in partnership with Technology Mirror is proud to present the 2nd edition of the  TOURISM AND TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT  with the theme   THE FUTUTURE FOR TRAVEL AND  TOURISM IN AFRICA.>>>BIOMETRICS  . ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE . BIG DATA. The future of travel is technology-based, so tourism jobs will require both technical and advanced soft skills used to effectively implement and manage smart initiatives. The greatest societal impact of digital transformation in tourism may be the effect on the sector’s workforce, which directly and indirectly represents 1 in every 10 jobs worldwide. Like in other economic sectors, intelligent automation will change the nature of some travel jobs and eradicate others altogether. However, digitally-enabled growth will also generate new employment opportunities that could outpace the automation of existing roles, especially as strong growth is forecast for the sector. Tourism and Technology Summit is a project driven by a vision to disrupt the Tourism industry in Africa through Technology.It works with the public & private sector to drive the growth & development of the industry through: • Emerging technology driven by innovations • Sector inspiring policies that enhance growth & development • Thoughtful stakeholders’ engagement. • The exposure of players to knowledge on global best practices that engender quality services
