Categories: Our News
As ArrivalGuides' growing customer portfolio approaches 600 destinations, many DMOs are convinced that it offers the most cost effective and time efficient platform for positioning a destination's brand in front of millions of travellers.
Following our article last month on the growth of the ArrivalGuides distributor network, this month we look at its affordability and hear what some of the key destination partners have to say about their experience.
First, a quick reminder about how it works. ArrivalGuides is the world's largest distributor of up-to-date destination information. Using the ArrivalGuides platform, destinations can upload a variety of tourism content including accommodation, events and attractions information. This content is then promoted by the entire ArrivalGuides distribution network (ie. 340 major global travel brands) via social media, SmartTV apps, inflight entertainment systems, newsletters, and a variety of online applications.
The affordability of being an ArrivalGuides partner has attracted many destinations who are on a tight budget, with one year costing less than a one-off quarter page ad in most publications. This, combined with the potential to reach millions of customers at various stages throughout the visitor journey makes being a destination partner particularly attractive. ArrivalGuides destination partners also have the ability to create a new revenue stream by selling ads in their own guides to make the platform even more financially viable.
So what do some of the the current destination partners have to say...
Zuzana Koubíková, Director of Pilsen - Tourism comments "The Czech Republic is much more than just Prague and we want the whole world to discover our amazing destination. ArrivalGuides will help us to pass the message to tourists and show that Pilsen, The European Capital of Culture 2015, is worth visiting. We are sure that with the wide network of partners in the industry, ArrivalGuides will make the task easier for us."
Fredrik Nilsson from Visit Dalarna, said "ArrivalGuides is the easiest way to get your information out on a global scale, and with its connection to all the most influential travel brands it´s an easy decision to join the network".
Manos Galanakis, Promotion & Sales Manager from Destination Crete said “ArrivalGuides
seemed to be a great opportunity to spread the word about Crete, since it is the leading global
destination information network. Our strong belief is that networking with ArrivalGuides could be the new era for developing opportunities for small start-ups like Destination Crete to reach a great exposure to continuously increasing distribution partner network. We share the same philosophy with ArrivalGuides and that is to inspire travelers in their planning and in
destination stages of their trip, so joining them is the premium solution for us."
