During the Tourism Industry Conference 2019, the Singapore Tourism Board brought forth the importance of transforming the Singapore tourism landscape through data and technology. With Singapore hitting a record high of 18.5 million visitors and $26.9 billion in tourism receipts in 2018*, the industry is in greater need of digital solutions that can better cater to these increasing demands.

Thus, having the “right” data has become vital in unlocking new capabilities across the tourism industry. Without it, businesses that cater to this fast-growing industry are unable to drive innovations that catches up to its increasing demands.

In understanding the rising industry data needs, IDEP has launched the Tourism Data Innovation Challenge. This challenge seeks to bring bigger and more industry relevant data to enable the development of solutions that can address industry-wide problem statements and uplift the Singapore tourism experience.
