The most innovative tourism organisations of 2014 | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Despite the existence of a variety of awards honouring innovation - with respect to airlines, airports, hotels, destinations and online tools in travel - tourism organisations have few opportunities to be recognised. Hence the annual UNWTO Ulysses Awards for 'Excellence and Innovation in Tourism' is an excellent barometer for the innovation occurring in the tourism sector across both the for-profit and non-profit sectors. This year involved the 11th annual version of these awards, honouring finalists across four different categories:

  • Award for innovation in research and technology
  • Award for innovation in enterprises
  • Award for innovation in public policy and governance
  • Award for innovation in non-governmental organisations

The social network anonymously aggregated Facebook posts, creating the lists by analysing how frequently a topic was mentioned between January and December 2014. Click here to view a video summing up 2014 on Facebook.
