  • 15. “We shall explore the creative integration of digitally-augmented locations, recommender systems, and location-based mobile experiences to develop Nottingham as a ‘welcoming city’. Our emphasis will be on how we might support residents to engage with visitors to offer new insights into their environment and help present new views of the city. Local people and businesses might augment key locations with reminiscences and media, creating personalised trails of local history and culture. Contextual prompts and social software would allow them to act as guides and provide advice to visitors with location based endeavours and allow them to attract people to less-visited locations in the city. The challenge is to fully understand how to design an entire city for digitally-enhanced visiting, such that events are coordinated, businesses enhanced and visitors engaged raising challenges of safety, privacy and digital rights.”
    Horizon Creative Visiting Theme
  • 16. 21st century tourism
    What is a tourism for the 21st century?
    How can we re-invent culture, tourism and guiding, for visitors and residents?
    How can we connect real and virtual visitors?
    How can a tourist location engage with young people, and the less enfranchised?
    How can a tourist location engage with those not traditionally considered ‘visitors’ or ‘tourists’, e.g. residents exploring their own city, gamers, urban sports people, hobbyists, festival goers?
    How can it promote and support youth creativity?
    How can a tourist location be re-designed to support new forms of visiting?
    What technology and infrastructure is needed?
    What are the new business models and opportunities?
    What are the practicalities, ethics, and constraints on continual monitoring of visitor activity, and providing personal and contextual services.
