In a time of constant changes, companies must have people who are prepared to interact with the new digital tourist and who have the knowledge to manage new technologies that are having great impact on the tourism business.
So much so that the new section is being very well received by the main industry companies and organisations, who understand the need to have this talent as a strategic factor for competitiveness.
Recruiting and head-hunting companies are also seeing in FITUR TALENT the possibility of expanding their business in such a dynamic sector as is tourism.
FITUR TALENT hosts all type of hospitality companies, travel agencies, OTAs, GDSs, airlines and aeronautics companies, road and sea passenger transportation companies, MICE, metasearch engines, entertainment companies, specialised training centres, universities, business schools, recruiting and consultancy companies, among others, both national and international.
The World Tourism Organisation, the World Travel & Tourism Council, the Spanish Confederation of Hotels and Tourism Accommodation, the Instituto Tecnológico Hotelero, as well as recruiting companies, training centres, and hotel chains have already confirmed their participation.
During the FITUR TALENT conference and activities programme there will also be presentations and discussions on data and reports that will enable participants to make decisions pertaining to the identification and development of skills, talent recruitment and retention, ongoing learning, or syllabi that will be required in coming years, among other issues.
