This weekend the 43rd edition of the International Tourism Fair, Fitur 2023, opens to the general public. metaverso or aviation simulators.
In Hall 10, the Iberia and Vueling stands offer the possibility of simulating a flight, in which the visitor is the pilot. In the case of Vueling, in this edition of Fitur it seeks to highlight its commitment to sustainability through an interactive game and the subsequent aerial simulation to explain what sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is.
In the case of Iberia, the airline is showing some of the main innovations that its customers will be able to enjoy this year, with a space of more than 600 square meters in which they house different experiences, including an aerial simulator test of the new seats in a space that imitate the cabin of an airplane.
Also at the Enaire stand, a virtual reality air control experience is offered through the flight simulator created by us, GammaSim. This is a simulator designed entirely by air traffic controllers and Enaire engineers that will allow visitors to experience what professionals feel when managing flights from an airport tower.
In addition, visitors who come to the Vectalia stand in hall 10 will be able to experience an immersion in the simulator through virtual reality glasses and discover the city of Alicante.
Viajes El Corte Inglés presents its own Metaverse
The Viajes El Corte Inglés group has launched into the world of the Metaverse, creating its own, giving visitors the opportunity to try it out exclusively before its premiere.
The new Viajes el Corte Inglés Metaverse will allow its users to explore virtual tours of the tourist destinations they want to visit, offering them an “immersive experience from home”. It will also make it easier for travelers to find events and gastronomic and cultural points of interest to plan their stays.
hotel of the future
Other innovative ‘stands’ complete this technological experience, such as the one at the Instituto Tecnológico Hotelero (ITH), where you can get to know the ‘hotel of the future’, a room adapted to new market technologies, set in the Nautilus submarine of the Verne’s novels ‘Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea’ and ‘The Mysterious Island’.
A presence detector, screens inside the room or smart glass are just some of the novelties offered by the new hotel rooms with RobotBas technology.
In addition, to reduce the number of intermediaries in the hotel reservation process, the Spanish company Hotelverse creates digital twins of the facilities that can be integrated into the hotels’ web reservation system. Thus, potential customers can see in an immersive way exactly what the room they are going to book would be like, as well as all the services and spaces offered by the hotel.
Andalusia or South Korea are just some of the tourist destinations that have technological experiences at their Fitur stands, with the aim of bringing the tourist potential of the territories closer.
In the case of the Korean ‘stand’, a robot directs visitors through the different spaces that the exhibitor has and shoots photographs that can be sent directly to the mobile phone.
In turn, Andalusia is one of the ‘stands’ with the greatest technological and lighting offer, highlighting a virtual game of golf or virtual reality experiences. In addition, as a novelty in this edition, the DemoLAB area has been incorporated, in what is called ‘Andalusia Hub’, which will have the presence of 45 Andalusian ‘startups’.
