‘Anzac Digital Tourism Scenarios’: Australian MPs attend event on Lemnos island

·

A presentation on the ‘Anzac Digital Tourism Scenarios – Digital Routes of Historical Tourism in Lemnos’ project was held on Lemnos island recently in the presence of a number of Australian Members of Parliament (MPs).

The presentation was organised by the The Lemnos’ Friends of Anzac Association in cooperation with the IT company, Aegean Solutions SA. The project is funded by the North Aegean Region and the beneficiary of the integrated action is the Municipality of Lemnos.

In attendance at the presentation were a number of representatives of the Greek State, local authorities and a delegation of Australian and Canadian members of the World Hellenic Inter-Parliamentary Association (PADEE/WHIA) including Federal Member for Adelaide, Steve Georganas MP, and the NSW Shadow Minister for Industrial Relations, Work Health and Safety, Sophie Cotsis MP.

The event took place in the hall of the Varos Village Boutique Hotel and Residences. It was followed by a wreath laying ceremony at the Portianos Commonwealth Cemetery, and a field demonstration of the new app created because of the project.

‘Anzac Digital Tourism Scenarios- Digital Routes of Historical Tourism in Lemnos’ is the first project in the Greek territory in the field of Historical Tourism, which is based on augmented reality and 3D development.

As part of the Association’s social responsibility to the local community, the expatriate MPs visited the landmarks of Lemnos, while an evening was organised in their honour, during which they had the opportunity to get to know the local products and local culture as presented by the Cultural Association of Tsimandria, Lemnos.
