X-Plora is one of the 20 most innovative Portuguese Startups

With 2020 coming to an end, we are proud to announce that we have been named as one of the 20 most innovative Portuguese Startups, with services and products that support the tourism sector. This list of companies, to “keep on your radar” during 2021, was compiled by NEST – Center for Innovation in Tourism, with the special participation of Turismo de Portugal and Portugal Ventures, entities that are involved in most tourism innovation initiatives and interact with hundreds of startups every year.
The common denominators among these 20 innovators are the global ambitions and the leverage of their growth in emerging technologies such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR), Marketplace, Operations, Revenue, Experience, Booking Engine, Niche, Transport, Communication, Human Resources, OTA and Channel Manager.
Roberto Antunes, NEST’s executive director, explained that “the selection of projects was not easy and we paid attention to several factors such as: their technological base, the innovation they bring to the tourism area or the value they bring to the market, due to the responses they bring to its needs. We also considered the economic impact that these startups could have in their area of activity, their potential for economic valuation and scalability, public recognition and visibility in the tourism ecosystem, including the attribution of national or international awards”.
This is the first year of this initiative, a start that has a particular value in this pandemic year and with the crisis that affects the tourism sector.
X-Plora is grateful for yet another recognition, which validates the work that we’ve been doing for the past months, addressing several concerns that have been introduced with the Covid-19 pandemic and new ways of approaching the tourism sector and the visitor experience.
