Futourismo - Ride the digital waves

 

The Regional Cooperation Council and its Triple-P Tourism Project are organizing the first regional FUTOURISMO competition, seeking innovative digital solutions that will help mitigate the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in the heavily affected sector of tourism.
