Innovative tourism project to feature in Burnie seminar

North West Tasmania's tourism industry and local community will have the opportunity to find about more about Sense-T's innovative Sensing Tourism Travel project at a special seminar in Burnie next month.

Project Lead Dr Anne Hardy will be one of four researchers to showcase her research at the TRENd Seminar Series at the University of Tasmania's Cradle Coast Campus on 1 October.

Dr Hardy will explain how the Sensing Tourist Travel Industry Research Project will use real-time, sensor-generated data to answer key questions about where different cohorts of tourists travel around Tasmania and how they make spontaneous travel decisions.

Funded by the Australian Government through the Tasmanian Jobs and Growth Plan, the project will involve tracking 600 tourists over the 2015/16 summer season via smartphones.

When: 12 Noon to 1.30 pm, Thursday 1 October 2015

Where: Room B1.10, University of Tasmania Cradle Coast campus, Burnie
