Questo Joins DIGITOUR PROJECT as approved Digital Provider
Posted on Nov 22, 2022 by Questo Team
Questo has been approved as a Digital Provider for the DIGITOUR PROJECT, an initiative that aims to connect SMEs from the tourism sector with providers of innovative smart solutions and new technologies. The DIGITOUR PROJECT is funded through The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and is entrusted by the European Commission.
The idea: DIGITOUR aims to increase the competitiveness and resilience of tourism SMEs in Europe to cope with new challenges faced by the tourism sector. In order to do this, they upskill digital knowledge, boost innovative, sustainable ideas and solutions and foster cross-border/cross-sectoral partnerships.
“SMEs make up 90% of organisations within tourism, and with the entire industry still recovering from the effects of COVID, it’s more important than ever to adopt and collaborate with technology solutions. We believe Questo can play a crucial role in this recovery, not only as a tool that not only delivers a smart, sustainable and profit-driving product, but also one which delivers fantastic customer experiences.”
- Alex Govoreanu, Questo Co-founder and CEO (2022)
