Pilot Program 9: starting November 30
The eighth Pilot Program started a few weeks ago and is going great. If you want to understand more about what it is and how it can help you, click here.
In order to undertake projects to create Transformative Experiences, it may be necessary to take advantage of an accelerator program, that is, a training course with which to accelerate the development of the business idea and make a place for yourself in the market, accompanied and supported by faculty who are experts in the field guiding toward business growth and success by speeding up various processes in innovative and sustainable ways. We have been doing this for as many as 8 editions, providing collective learning, startup methodology and all our experience in the travel world.
We never stop, and that’s why we want to announce that
Pilot Program 9 is scheduled to start on November 30.
Starting today, registration is open to secure a spot in our accelerator program for transformative Travel projects with high growth potential.
If you would like to inquire about the Pilot Program book
a meeting with Nicola.
What happened at the TTG Travel Experience in Rimini
What happened at the TTG in Rimini?
We were TTG Travel Experience to tell everyone that we are there and want to be with those who want to do their work by making a positive impact in the world!
Many interesting realities with exciting projects came to our booth. We have exciting new ideas and are already hard at work working with some of those realities.
This year we participated in TTG in Rimini with our own booth and had the opportunity to make some different reflections from those usually heard inside the fair spaces, bringing a constructive critical sense aimed at creating something useful and serious.
The message we wanted to bring
The sense of the message during the (Travel) Agents for Future event is about the idea that there are so many operators in tourism who have chosen to design experiences following the dictates of responsible, sustainable, slow tourism, and so on. Some of them went a step further by using the concept of transformation, which in Apical we have been telling and following all along.
So there are plenty of operators who create products by making ethical choices, but it is not the same with regard to Travel Agents, who often end up selling cruises, resorts and destinations that are questionable in terms of sustainability, respect for human rights, etc.
For these reasons, we have brought our vision to bear on an issue that should also be placed at the center of attention by Travel Agents and not only by those who create tourism products.
Can a space be built that allows sellers to have their own economic satisfaction and simultaneously make a field choice?
Diletta from EcoTips Travel Lab, our guest at (Travel) Agents for Future
Nicola and Diletta, host of the event, from EcoTips Travel Lab shared with the audience a moment of discussion and reflection on the values and actions of the new generation of tourism professionals* who want to create positive change in the world through their work.
“CAN YOU STOP SELLING CRUISES AND RESORTS?” Diletta told us how her project, focused on sustainability in travel, ecotourism, experiential, outdoor, natural and cultural tourism, succeeds, with commitment, hard work and passion, in going against the current dynamics and practices of mass and unsustainable tourism. We have brought our thoughts and hope it will set an example for all* who want to take care of territories, the culture of places and local communities by offering Transformative Experiences.
We know that some people were not able to attend but they want to hear what Nicola and Diletta had to say, so we thought we would offer the event online. Next Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 5 p.m. Nicola and Diletta will connect on Zoom to speak to and with those who were not there.
