The Insular Council of Tenerife is moving forward with the implementation of the services of the Smart Office Tenerife, an intelligent tourist office that will manage all the sector’s projects linked to digitalisation.
Laura Castro, the insular director of Tourism, explains that this office will be responsible for managing all the digitalisation projects, in order to “strengthen the productivity and competitiveness of the sector and to promote the sustainable development of the area”.
She further adds that “through this project, which will go out to tender in mid-January, with a budget of 453,333 euros, we want to strengthen the competitiveness and security of our tourism sector and consolidate Tenerife’s position as a Smart Tourism Destination (DTI)”.
The project, which will last twelve months (extendable for another 24 months), is part of the Tenerife Reset project, within the framework of the Tourism Sustainability Plans in Destinations Programme that is financed with European Next Generation funds.
The Tenerife Smart Office will manage all the island’s projects associated with digitalisation, including the tourism cybersecurity plan and the artificial intelligence plan. Specifically, it will be staffed with four technicians who will assist in obtaining European funds and in the management and justification of the innovation projects under development.
