Innovation Norway is a public company that supports entrepreneurship. They realized that the travel and tourism sector would be severely affected by the pandemic and decided to offer more learning and development services to this industry as a way to support them until things could open up again. The requirements for the training program was that it needed to be done remotely, have the capacity to host a large number of people without prior training of the platform, and it needed to be in place within a few short weeks.
They approached consulting company Vertskapet to create a virtual training program specifically for the travel and tourism sector. Vertskapet, in turn, came across Howspace, and found that it checked all the requirements.
