Hooray! Do you know who won the UNWTO Startup Competition for Digital Solutions for Island Destinations in the category ” Innovation and Digitalization for Island Destinations” – us, Umni with our CEO Elitza Stoilova. Elitza won the first prize award with an amazing pitch and performed as a fully dedicated to her company CEO.
👏Elitza represented both Umni and Bulgaria in the Canary Islands and in front of a number of local agencies and global organizations such as UNWTO, Master Card, Amadeus, TUI Foundation, the Ministry of Tourism of Cyprus, Malta, Spain, Croatia, Spain, and others. The final was on the sidelines of UNWTO’s conference in Las Palmas, TOURISM TECH ADVENTURES – CANARIAS 2023. The conference itself was part of a 2-day event dedicated to the digitalization of the Canary Islands, DigiON Canarias.
🥇We are beyond proud of this first-place award! We want to thank the organizers World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), UNWTO Academy, INFECAR – Ferias y Eventos – Cabildo de Gran Canaria, and also congratulate all the participants in the competition!
🏆 What set us apart? The Island Tourism AI Concierge (AI chatbot) will be supported by a local team on the Umni platform with no technical knowledge and special skills and will help create personalized experiences for tourists that support local culture, traditions, and local businesses, thus creating new opportunities for local community development.
Umni rocks and continues to develop forward with full force! 😊
