A keynote paper, published in 2011 but still a state of the art, comments on the new technological trends which have important implications for cultural heritage and tourism.  

Given the recent phenomenon of heritage digitization new opportunities emerge for the heritage tourism market as well as for cultural organizations such as museums and heritage attractions.

Consumers  are now facing the dynamics of pervasive technology and new types of customized, integrated experiences -which start before and end long after the actual visit- in which they are actively involved through social networking and extensive use of mobile technologies. Museums are regarded as fertile environments which have the potential to facilitate the development of such experiences by encouraging on-site discovery through online and offline means.
