With the theme “Creative Economy”, this year’s festival boasted 44 booths displaying products of nearly 50 creative start-ups in Hai Phong city and some other regions across the country, focusing on Information Technology, agriculture, tourism, education etc. This is an opportunity for innovative start-up projects to promote their products to a wide range of users and an opportunity to directly access and connect with businesses.

At the festival, the Faculty of Tourism, Phenikaa University participated with the project “Community-based tourism in rural communities in Ly Nhan, Ha Nam”. This is the idea for a community-based tourism start-up project in the Northern Delta rural area to exploit one commune, one product (OCOP) to contribute to creating a unique tourism product. This is a bright spot to attract tourism to this city. In the future, it is expected that this model will apply technology to help tourists experience and discover more about the cultural and traditional values of Ly Nhan in a more lively and exciting way.

This project is anticipated not only to bring benefits to Ha Nam province, but also economic values to the local people. At the same time, the project is also expected to contribute to bringing Ha Nam’s tourism to a new height, so that this place becomes a centre of leisure travel culture in the Northern Delta region.
