Croatian startup SightRun has strengthened the tourist offer of Graz

first_imgSightRun, a free mobile application that connects running and sightseeing, and uses the mobile phone’s GPS system to activate audio, has spread beyond our borders, more precisely to Austria.Thus, Graz, in addition to Zagreb, Rovinj, Opatija and Munich, is on the list of cities where it is possible to run with an application or experience a tourist run. SightRun was one of the winners of the next incubator boot camp, Energie Steiermark’s innovation laboratory, and thus had the opportunity to work on further application development with the support of an expert team. With the completion of this pilot project, a tour for the city of Graz was launched, and the project was presented to the media in Graz yesterday. “Even an energy company has to make a digital transformation and can no longer rest and rely solely on its previous business, especially if it wants to remain competitive and future-oriented. Digital benefits and new technologies open up the rich and interesting potential of different business models. For this reason, we started an incubator three years ago, focusing on startup projects. We are currently looking for IoT business models, and the tender is open until the end of May.”Said Christian Purrer, CEO of Energie Steiermark.By the way, the SightRun application has been available in Graz since the beginning of the year, and as Sandra Bortek, Marketing Director and co-founder of SightRun, points out, smart city solutions are no longer just nice-to-have, but something that the new generation of passengers really need “We are proud to present SightRun in Graz and we are glad to have collaborated with Energie Steiermark and the Graz Tourist Board, who recognized the potential of the project. With SightRun, we have taken city sightseeing to a new level and helping cities become one runner friendly. With the fact that running is one of the fastest growing sports cities in the world and recognizing runners as an interesting tourist niche, I am sure that this cooperation is only our first step in promoting Graz and Austria as a racing destination.”, Added Sandra Bortek.We are pleased that we have supplemented the tourist offer of the city of Graz with the SightRun application, said Dieter Hardt-Stremayr, director of Graz Tourism, and added ” There are more and more visitors, mostly those business and conference visitors, who like to be active during their stay in the city and do not want to give up their daily racing routine. With this application, a pre-prepared running route is available to them. The application navigates them through the city, and along the way they learn interesting things about the city”Concluded Dieter Hardt-Stremayr.Croatian startup SightRun is a mobile application for tourist running and a new tourist product for running as an attractive tourist niche. SightRun the app can be downloaded for free on the Apple Store and Google Play, and read more about the whole story of the SightRun touring running app in an interview with Sandra Bortek attached.Related news: SIGHTRUN EXCELLENT NEW TOURIST PRODUCT CONNECTING RUNNING AND TOURISM – TOURIST RUNNINGlast_img
