Who we are

DOLOMITEXPERIENCE is a new start-up business that provides advice for tourism development, with a focus on the UNESCO Dolomites territory.

Our aim is to bring together the stakeholders already operative in the territory, providing support for the development and implementation of new tourist products of an experiential type.

The main objectives of DOLOMITEXPERIENCE are:

  • Developing the tourist vocation of the Dolomites area, enhancing its cultural, traditional, naturalistic, sporting, enogastronomic aspects;
  • Strengthening the current tourist flows, focusing on new targets and markets, national and international and encouraging the deseasonalization;
  • Involving the local community in the process of developing the tourist offer, fostering participation in activities and events and the creation of business networks;
  • Innovating the tourism offer, providing support to institutions and businesses to access the European funds and the establishment of a network of international collaborations.

We are part of the MOUNT&LAKEXPERIENCE group, which aims to promote the best development practices in mountain and lake areas through a sustainable and inclusive tourism offer.

Founder of DOLOMITEXPERIENCE and PHOTOEXPERIENCE, co-founder of MOUNT & LAKEXPERIENCE

Born in the heart of the Dolomites area and originating from a family of hoteliers, I worked for several years in the IT sector as a software developer. After an experience abroad, in Canada, I decided to devote myself to the tourism sector and specialize in particular in the marketing area, combining my IT background with the new skills provided by the Master in Economics and Tourism Management, managed by CISET, Ca ‘Foscari University of Venice.

Currently, I provide tourism consulting and training, in the Dolomites area, playing an active role in the promotion and development of sustainable tourism in the area

The themes on which I am focusing are: analyzing and following the local vocation to develop its potential, launching new trends for mountain tourism, innovating the tourism offer and extending its seasonality, involving the local community in the new initiatives, encouraging the tourism promotion through new technologies, promoting access by institutions and companies to European calls for funding.

OUR PARTNERSHIPS

We collaborate, anytime, anywhere.

We operate on two levels of collaboration: collaborations within the MOUNT&LAKEXPERIENCE group, and external collaborations.

Within the group, our sub-brands focus on the transfer of skills, projects and knowledge for the promotion of products suitable for different mountain and lake development contexts. We create synergies and projects in collaboration between the various territories, in a broader perspective of exchange and enrichment.

On an external level we distinguish between the cooperations with local bodies active in the target areas, and international organizations able to support the internationalisation of products and services of the local territories.

Among the local cooperation projects, we can mention:

Touriscamp

A new service to support and promote start-up ideas related to the world of tourism. Touriscamp is always looking for new startuppers, to “sprout” their ideas and start with them new paths of tourism development, in order to accompany them from the initial idea to the actual establishment of a company, as it is happening with DOLOMITEXPERIENCE.

Orizzonti Montani

An organization, active since 1998 in the Dolomites, which offers unforgettable adventures in the mountains, accompanied by mountain guides and ski instructors. The philosophy that guides Orizzonti Montani is simple and at the same time very profound: living the mountain, promoting sustainable tourism, in full compliance with nature discovery and environment protection. We collaborate with Orizzonti Montani because, besides the great technical and operational competence in the field, we are driven by the same values in our way of working: the passion for the mountains and the love for our territory.

Tourist Office

A native mobile application for iOS and Android devices owned by FlyWeb, downloadable for free from the official Apple and Google stores, which allows you to discover the main tourist attractions of the city. A useful tool for public administrations and tourism promotion agencies, which can offer a free multilingual tourist guide 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

ITS Turismo

ITS tourism aims to provide a high technical specialization in the tourism sector, considering both the needs of the labour market and the elements of innovation present in the sector, and the specificity of Veneto, the first tourist region of Italy. ITS Turismo works to create centers of excellence for training and innovation in the field of hospitality.

Among the international cooperation projects we can mention:

Maggioni Tourist Marketing

A marketing and communication agency in the tourism sector aimed at promoting international destinations for German-language markets.

CISET

The International Centre for Studies on Tourism Economics, was set up in 1991, as a result of a partnership between Ca’ Foscari University Venice, the Veneto Region and the Italian Touring Club. CISET’s approach is a perfect blend of academic expertise and business know-how, based on a strong synergy between research studies and consultancy services – conducted by CISET or in collaboration with national and international partners – and on its experience in tertiary education and management training. CISET provides the tourist industry, local administrations and future tourism operators with the tools to approach the market in innovative ways, paving the way for success.
