WTF Lucerne and IHCL to Organise Start-up Innovation Camp, 2019 in India

After attaining a successful stature at global level, World Tourism Forum Lucerne (WTFL) is making its debut in India and has received over 200 participation requests for the upcoming Start-up Innovation Camp, 2019.

First of its kind competition in India had open entries for start-ups focusing on culture, community, conservation and commerce in the field of travel, tourism and hospitality from the Indian subcontinent. In collaboration with Tata Trusts, IHCL, Swissnex India and the Global Himalayan Expedition, the finalists will be announced at the Start-Up Innovation Camp to be held on December 18th later this year.

WTFL’s entry into India is well-times as the country braces up to revive Brand India with the help of 5 Ts: Tradition, Talent, Tourism, Trade and Technology. This resonates very well with the four focus areas of Conservation, Culture, Community and Commerce where the nominations were solicited from promising entrepreneurs.

The Indian Start-Up Innovation Camp has already received over 200 nominations, with Indian start-ups dominating it with 95% entries. All the entries will be screened by the pre-selection jury and 40 game changing ideas will be presented to the panel of International judges. Final 16 start-ups will be invited for the finale in Bengaluru to showcase their products/services. One winner under each category will take home USD 10,000 each along with a personalized two-year mentoring by industry experts.

Addressing the overwhelming response from participants, Martin Barth, President & CEO, World Tourism Forum said, “We are excited to have received a great number of entries for our India episode. India is a very important market for us due to its niche product portfolio in travel and tourism,that is expected to grow almost 100% by 2028. We are sure to make a mark and create awareness around the on-going environmental issues and look forward to holding more such engaging events in India in the coming years.”
