What's On

Registration Closed

The pandemic outbreak has been the tipping point for digital transformation across different industries. It is however quite challenging for experiential tourism operators to go virtual when authenticity and human interactions are the critical elements that underpin their product offerings. That being the case, there are some innovative industry players that have managed rise to the challenge by providing virtual experiences that rival physical tours through such means as 'spicing up' their offerings with various interesting elements.

Join our Webinar on 18 November when Paul Chan, Co-founder and CEO of Walk In Hong Kong, Rubio Chan and Jamie Cheung, Co-founders and Joint Managing Directors of GLO Travel, will share their approach to implementing virtualisation to counter the "tourism winter" that is afflicting Hong Kong. They will also share their thoughts on the lasting benefits that adopters of virtualisation could enjoy well beyond the pandemic.

Walk in Hong Kong is an inbound tourism operator specialised in providing well-curated and unique walking tours and cultural experiences in Hong Kong and GLO Travel is an outbound tourism operator that established an online course platform and offers real-time and recorded lessons on a variety of travel and culture-related topics.
