Cruise Passengers Welcome - Balanced Tourism Solutions by SeaConsult & TRIAD

Overcrowding has evolved to be one of the major challenges the cruise industry is facing these days. But how do you optimize cruise passenger flows in a way that destinations, locals, cruise lines and passengers themselves benefit out of it?

Developed out of a joint venture, SeaConsult and TRIAD offer an innovative two-step approach to solving the problem of overcrowding in destinations while at the same time improving the travel experience of cruise passengers.

The inspiring, green, innovative WelcomeGate creates an immersive welcome situation for cruise passengers on their way from aboard the cruise ship into the destination with the ultimate aim of increasing travel experience and awareness for the destination.

With the Azoul Travel App, based on a context aware location platform, tourists receive instant real time guiding through the destination, individually provided on their own mobile devices. The session will show how the complexity of a destination can be managed by combining real-time databases in a customer-friendly way. Want to find out more about these unique solutions?
