Dubai Tourism is inviting the best and brightest start-ups servicing the travel and tourism industry, or with applications in the sector, to submit business plans that enhance two key pillar categories: Hospitality Services and The Visitor Experience.
What's it about?
In line with Dubai’s Tourism Vision 2020, and coupled with the city’s ambitious innovation agenda, Dubai Tourism has launched a competition for GITEX Future Stars 2017, as it looks to facilitate and support the city’s growing start-up ecosystem and drive advancement in the sector.
Under the initiative, Dubai Tourism will run a specialised corporate programme for the GITEX Future Stars collaboration matching regional travel and tourism leaders with start-ups to open doors and encourage dialogue for partnerships and better industry collaboration and connectedness.
What's the prize?

In addition, these budding entrepreneurs will also have the opportunity to pitch their proposal to a panel of judges, with the three leading ideas from each category receiving start-up capital to turn their business into reality.
