How can processes be optimised for sustainability and climate-related improvements? What it brings to tourism? In many countries around the world, digital twins (realistic, virtual models) are used to simulate changes or potential impacts of events on city with an effort to minimize risks.

A number of cities, including Vienna or Pilsen, are pioneers, but not only cities have a digital twins also entire regions or countries have their digital twin models already. However, there is no digital twin for the Alpine region.

Especially in Austria, where tourism and sustainability play a key role, a digital twin could reveal potentials with a huge positive impact.

This was the main theme of the Digital Twin Ewent conference, held in hybrid form in Kitzbühel, Austria.
