Why tourism boards should consider getting a mobile travel application?

Slide background


It is without a doubt that travelers are among the leading users of mobile devices when they look for information regarding the destinations they visit. The vast majority of them have already replaced printed travel guides with travel mobile apps as they offer more interactive, media-rich (photos, video, sounds), direct and up-to-date sources of information.

This new communication channel allows tourism boards to promote their destinations and interact with travelers in a more engaging and direct way, which ultimately increases travellers’ satisfaction. Therefore, a mobile travel app represents a long-term asset and a powerful marketing tool for a tourism board.

Concept Maniax has developed Concept Guides, one of the most advanced tourism mobile platforms worldwide, aiming to satisfy present and future needs within the travel market. Our mobile application, being Native and 100% offline, is faster and better integrated with the device, allowing the user to have access to all information at all times without the need of internet access, thus avoiding expensive roaming costs.

We have developed a great range of capabilities and features for our platform, but each mobile app can be customized to your needs.
