28 Jun Innovatur sets its sights firmly on the future
As we revealed in our previous post, Innovatur is already thinking about the next steps to take. Although it’s true that the global health situation hindered the project’s progress, it also motivated us (even further) in our desire to help accommodation establishments and businesses operating in one of the most heavily affected sectors, namely tourism.
With help from the Cabildo de Tenerife, Turismo de Tenerife and the Chambers of Commerce of Madeira and Angra do Heroísmo in the Azores, participating businesses have been able to receive the help needed to improve their competitive edge, harnessing innovation as a driving force for change.
That’s what we were told by, among others, Bruno Correa from Paradise Park Fun Lifestyle Hotel and César Rivas from Lava Store, two businesses that took part in this first edition, in an interview they gave in late March.
Second edition of Innovatur
We’ve reached the final stage of the project, but there’s good news, as we believe there’s still much to be done to help the tourism sector. With that in mind, we’ll be doing everything in our power to uphold our firm commitment to help businesses achieve the levels of innovation and sustainability that they need. That’s why we’re already looking at the possibility of implementing a second edition of Innovatur, leveraging the experience gained during the project.
Future objectives include continuing with the initiatives carried out so far, ensuring more destinations are added to the project with the aim of helping them modernise, advocating for greater sustainability and digitalisation, providing new services to help in the renovation of different establishments and spaces, and securing funding for potential outcomes resulting from the participants’ involvement in the project.
In short, we will be working to ensure this first edition is only the beginning, and will continue looking to the future with optimism in our efforts to develop a new edition of Innovatur.
