We are looking for an experienced tech partner to help us deliver the interpretation part of the project.

The aim will be to align the content, the presentation of that content and the channels on which it is used to the target demographic to enhance the heritage appeal to younger audiences.

The tech partner needs to have experience in delivering augmented reality content, ideally in a heritage or tourism setting.

We would welcome applications from individual companies as well as consortia and partnerships.

The specifics of the project are as follows:

— Sourcing and curating new moments in time stories (48 stories). This will be in partnership with the destinations and will be reviewed by an editorial board which will include representations from the partners and will be set up for the purposes of this project.

— Animating stories via augmented reality/ virtual reality technology (80 assets).

— Develop a new and engaging way of bringing these stories together, for example via a game, trail, treasure hunt.

— Animating stories/destinations via video — these films should connect with sample itineraries being developed as part of Strand 1 and therefore would include multiple destinations. Expected 5/6 films. The films are promoting the destination clusters not the app.

— Integrating new content into our existing app in a way that enhances and develops it.

— Integration of itineraries and routes to book into the existing app.

— Integrating new content into the itinerary planning tool being developed by London and Partners — this will sit as a hub for EHC on the www.visitlondon.com website.
