Arival to showcase innovators

Arival to launch ‘innovation showcase’ at Berlin conference

BERLIN, February 27, 2024

Arival, the leading authority for the tours, activities and experiences industry, has announced the launch of its Innovation Showcase at the upcoming Arival 360 Conference taking place at the Estrel Berlin from March 2-4. 

Hundreds of representatives from companies across the tours, activities, attractions and experiences sectors are expected to attend the Arival 360 conference, where factors that are driving change in the sector will be discussed

Sponsored by Stripe, this live showcase features five finalists presenting their innovations from the stage to a panel of three experts handpicked by Arival. The five companies feature extraordinary innovations that support the tours, activities, attractions, events and experiences industry.

“The Innovation Showcase shines a spotlight on some of the most forward-thinking organisations in our industry,” said Bruce Rosard, co-founder of Arival.

“This is an exciting time for the in-destination experiences industry. With Gen AI leading the way, new and established tech companies are developing innovative products that are helping experience creators grow their businesses more efficiently. These products also create opportunities for better user experience during tours, activities and attractions.”

The five finalists for Arival’s first ever Innovation Showcase are:

  • Curated Planet
  • TourConnect
  • TourReview
  • TipDirect by TripAdmit
  • WeGoTrip

“We selected five “Innovator Finalists” who embody an original and solutions-oriented approach to tackling an industry challenge,” said Rosard. 

“Each of our finalists’ innovations demonstrate a new technology or approach that is directly applicable to the in-destination experiences industry and usable by companies in the sector.”

The five innovators were selected for demonstrating a pioneering development in either:

  • New technology or business model innovation for sales, marketing and distribution
  • A new tour, product or experience
  • A guest experience innovation
  • Technology and connectivity innovation
  • An innovation in tour or attraction business operations

Each finalist will be critiqued by industry experts, and audience voting determines the “Most Innovative”.  The winning company is awarded $25,000 in Stripe processing credits, an invitation to attend and provide a short presentation at Arival 360 San Diego, and two tickets to The Phocuswright Conference including entry into the Startup Program. – TradeArabia News Service
