It explores the role of technology, impacts of technology, customers and information, and finishes with a case study of Lo-Q, a UK company involved in developing technological systems that aim to minimise queuing in theme parks. For students of Travel and Tourism, this resource provides an excellent overview of some of the more important ways in which technology has transformed an industry.
