NEW TECHNOLOGIES IN PROMOTING INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE TOURISM – CHANCES AND THREATS
City of Zabrze invites to:
17th International Scientific-Practical Conference
02-03 April 2020
Zabrze – Chain Stitch Bath, Królowa Luiza Adit, Wolności Street no. 410
Museums, public spaces and industrial heritage facilities are increasingly eager to implement interactive and mobile solutions. Thanks to this, a visit to them more and more resembles time travel.
Modern technological solutions, often on the borderline of the world of theatre, film, photography, charm and build a message everywhere where it was impossible until now. The boundaries of being online and offline are blurring and becoming fluid, and 5G technology will be the Internet of Things (IoT) infrastructure, taking the next step towards the universality of ambient computing. According to trend analysts, the purchasing value of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) markets will grow dynamically. So, are the physical and virtual worlds inseparable, creating a new form of reality together? What are the consequences of new technologies that we experience rather than use?
Industrial heritage is subject to economic revitalization around the world, which results in the transformation of post-industrial facilities into public, commercial and sought-after tourist attractions. While the first two solutions, thanks to the utility function, have a direct impact on increasing the quality of life of residents, tourist attractiveness builds or rebuilds a positive image of places, supporting economic development in the services sector using technologies and creative industries. Contemporary tourists are increasingly looking for experiences and emotions corresponding to the 4E formula, which tools can be new technologies.
The conference is organized under the auspices of Polish Chamber of Tourism, Polish Tourism Organisation and Coal Mining Museum.
You are warmly welcome to participate in the event.
