Both entities have signed an protocol to promote collaboration between the tourism and engineering, consultancy and technological development sectors.
Innovation, digitalisation and the use of emerging technologies for the creation of products and experiences are areas in which the Galician tourism sector can continue to make progress in order to improve its competitiveness and profitability. To do so, the Galician business world offers the services of a large group of companies in areas such as engineering, consultancy, environmental management, training and technological development. In order to build bridges between them, the Galicia Tourism Cluster and Ageinco, the Galician Association of Engineering, Consultancy and Technical Services Companies, have just signed a collaboration protocol.
The document, formalised this Thursday 9th June by the presidents of the Tourism Cluster and Ageinco, Cesáreo Pardal and Daniel Prieto Renda, explains that its objective is to “establish a close collaboration” between both entities “with the aim of improving the actions that allow the enhancement of our territory, take advantage of the potential that the services of Ageinco companies can do for the tourism sector achieving more competitive and profitable companies and, ultimately, propose actions that may be of interest to both sectors” in Galicia.
Tourism planning and strategy, sector infrastructures and equipment, business advice, entrepreneurship, product development and tourism experiences, promotion and marketing, international promotion actions and customer acquisition in the main foreign markets, the development of actions that contribute to sustainability, human resources training, quality, innovation, digital transformation, signage plans, technological consultancy, innovation and the promotion of Smart Tourist Destinations are the main areas of collaboration included in the protocol.
This agreement between the Galicia Tourism Cluster and Ageinco will be valid for two years, which may be extended for a further two years.
