Abstract

Guest editorial Guest editorial: New technologies for the tourism and hospitality industry Information communications technology (ICT)-driven tourism innovations can be realized by a systematic integration of tourism and IT infrastructures (Koo et al., 2017a, b). A strong wave of smart digital technologies and the development of urbanization with the smart city concept have strongly influenced the research trends and agendas of the tourism and hospitality industry (Gretzel and Koo, 2021). In the past few years, new research on technology-driven tourism, such as smart tourism, has received great attention from researchers. Smart tourism is “a new buzzword applied to describe the increasing reliance of tourism destinations, their industries and their tourists on emerging forms of ICT that allow for massive amounts of data to be transformed into value propositions” (Gretzel et al., 2015a, b, c). Smart tourism development accelerates different types and levels of convergence and innovation in various ICTs and tourism contexts (Koo et al., 2017a, b).
