This Demonstration Centre, located in the Gran Canaria Technology Park at the Canary Islands Exhibition Centre (INFECAR) in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, enables companies involved in tourism to discover and implement information and communication technologies. CDTIC Innovación Turística has spaces in which ICT companies who are interested can show tourism companies, in a practical way, technology products and services aimed at improving their productivity and competitiveness.
It seeks to be a point where technological innovation and the needs of the tourism sector can meet and, for that purpose, brings together the supply of innovative solutions and the demand as identified, encouraging implementation of ICT tools and applications in businesses, and setting in motion actions to develop and improve the island, its population and tourists, a characteristic feature of an Intelligent Tourist Destination
