Tourism and Environments
The travel and tourism industry is intense in emotions, experiences and sensations. In the societies of the future new developments in hospitality and comfort will cover all of these aspects together with concepts more closely associated with physiological needs and self-actualization.
Environmental concerns such as climate change generate opportunities for innovation which will result in new products, processes, markets and business models. To this end, companies must adopt technologies that prolong the life of natural resources, design production systems that eliminate costly waste and reinvest in the restoration, protection and expansion of natural habitats.
These new products, designs and services aimed at generating wellbeing will be fundamental to achieve greater competitiveness in the tourism industry. This new conceptualisation of hospitality and comfort will have a direct impact on the reframing of tourist destinations and infrastructures (nodes).
