The Futurism Programme, a 6-week, zero equity, accelerator programme in Dubai for the travel and tourism industry, aims to transform the tourism experience in Dubai, reinforcing Dubai’s position as a leading global destination. This year Dubai Tourism collaborates with Accenture to deliver the programme connecting the global technology startups with the leading tourism players in Dubai and the UAE.

Launched in 2017, the Futurism Programme was borne of the Dubai 10X initiative by the Government of Dubai to accelerate the city 10 years ahead of others, with the name 10X reflecting experimental thinking. In its 3rd edition, Futurism presents an opportunity for forward-thinkers to connect with major players in Dubai’s tourism industry and nurture radically different solutions for the next-generation of travelers.
