A Non-Immersive Virtual Reality Booking Platform for The Hospitality Sector (Dinetours)

The project will get feedback from early adopters to fine-tune and deliver the extensible Dinetours web platform, which is marketable (TRL9) and where each module is provided as a Web Service. It will offer virtual reality tours and booking services for supporting reservations in the hospitality sector, e.g., restaurants, venues. A market research will be performed for gathering, recording and analysing data about customers, clients, competitors and the market. This will be part of the overall feasibility study that aims to reveal if the platform meets certain financial and social goals in the market, to define the right business model and business plan. Finally, focus will be also given to the dissemination and exploitation of the platform based on the activities and events defined in the project.
