Beijing, China, 15th November 2023 – Following China's 20th National Congress of the Communist Party and the "14th Five-Year Plan" for Culture and Tourism Development, aimed at creating exciting experiences, the Ministry of Culture and Tourism's Industry Development Division has unveiled 20 impressive new ways to enjoy cultural tourism. Barco stands out as a key player, having a hand in nine of these unique projects using projectors. They're infusing a modern touch into traditional culture, giving people a fresh and immersive visual experience.

Barco's projects cover various areas like live shows, nighttime adventures, immersive exhibitions, and themed entertainment.
