Market Consultation for Heritage Trail Augmented Reality App

Market Consultation for Heritage Trail Augmented Reality App

Dublin City Council are holding a market consultation to examine and consider the various options that are available to create and develop an immersive heritage trail mobile application for Dublin Docklands.

Dublin Docklands encapsulates the very essence of the city’s unique maritime heritage. The maritime legacy of the Docklands is immense, exhibiting engineering excellence, industrial and dockside warehouse buildings and transport infrastructure. The Docklands has seen rapid development over the last few years and this regeneration creates a unique opportunity to protect, conserve and enhance its heritage.

The Docklands is an important part of the tourism offering provided to visitors coming to Dublin. With Fáilte Ireland announcing plans for a Visitor Experience Development Plan (VEDP) for Dublin Docklands, there is a strong tourism focus on the area now and for the years ahead.

Combining Dublin City Council and Tourism Ireland’s appetite for innovation with the Smart Docklands testbed provides an optimum environment for real innovation within the tourism industry.

This market consultation in the form of a Prior Information Notice (PIN) will aid Dublin City Council in the development of a procurement strategy which will be utilised for a forthcoming tender competition.

Dublin City Council is interested in hearing from suppliers in relation to all aspects of the process including (but not limited to):

● Mobile Application Design & Features
● Use of Augmented Reality
● Storytelling & Interpretive Design
● Content creation
● Wayfinding
● Sourcing of information, images, video etc.
