Tourists often struggle to understand local and relevant offers in tourist areas other than traditional attractions. Travellers lack planning tools that consider time and budget constraints and customize offers to their interests. A simple observation of the supply side shows that tourist packages offer little to no flexibility, and are not adaptable for short stays.
To overcome these obstacles, PasTime offers a set of technologies that gathers business and cultural tourist offerings into attractive packages. These customized packages are based on the user’s interests and purchase behavior, which is extracted from big data information. PasTime uses advanced technologies that allow for a better understanding of culture and tourism. In fact, this is demonstrated by the very successful launch of the 3cixty program.
The target customers for the PasTime package are (1) city stakeholders like city marketing, travel and tourism-related companies and organizers of large events, (2) providers and developers of data management solutions and applications for cities or events.
