"A place where those who make Travel grow by being a team" - Apical Passport
A place to orient, confront and build the Future. Teaming up is increasingly necessary. Why Apical Passport was born
Joining together not to fall behind. The evolution of the Events, Experiences and Tourism marketplace is forcing Travel companies and creators to adapt and unite in the face of the growing monopolies of OTAs.
Since March 2021, a number of companies-led by the support of the startup Apical-have tried to create a place where they can do training, network, and most importantly, where they can try to grow together.
Apical Passport, the first digital platform created from the bottom up has an ambitious goal: “We are designing the Future of Transformative Industries together, because we firmly believe that those working in these industries can contribute.”
Over 100 Travel Operators, Beta Testing Phase Completed
A platform accessible from Desktop and Mobile App where you can find over 40 hours of online courses (updated monthly), Network spaces, opportunities and public calls.
Also starting in May, there will be the first exclusive Events and Meet Up for the community.
What Apical Passport is for
Apical Passport is an online community dedicated to those who want to grow.
“Apical Passport is the digital space dedicated to tourism, events and culture operators and companies that want to grow and are not afraid of change,” Zanola explains.
It is easily accessed from smartphones and PCs and can be used in an extremely versatile way: some people use it mainly for paths on Business development, Marketing or sustainability; some use it for networking or attending our events.
The Calls for Tenders section is the one considered to be among the most useful: thanks to our collaboration with Leyton Italy, we search for and select the most interesting calls for proposals for the sector.
In addition, those who need it can easily request support in filling out the notice. Through this system we have already submitted and obtained dozens of applications.
“The platform for teamwork.”
“What is most valuable is the potential for networking.”
Apical Passport is a bottom-up platform that is growing and improving through the contributions of its own participants.
“I think that’s the main value of the project” -Nicholas from Apical explains-“people are getting to know each other and someone will test the first projects together that were born right around one of Passport’s events and features!
Apical Passport is not Apical’s main activity:“We decided to create a digital place to respond to the growing need of Travel companies and creators to network,” explains Valentina, Community Manager at Apical. Those who enter grow because they start training paths guided by us and do not miss a single one of the opportunities they could take. Those in Passport often become Apical customers (and start using the booking platform as well), but it is not always the case.”
At present, the project is sustained by a small monthly subscription from participants, which is needed to maintain the facilities and cover teachers’ courses.
“In 2022 we will make the platform something more,” Nicola concludes. “ We already have news about it, we believe we can help the whole industry To revive after the pandemic year. Passport is just beginning.”
