Discover the Future of Travel Exploration with Driftscape at Rendez Vous 2024

Canada, May 2024 – Driftscape, the premier travel app revolutionizing how tourists experience destinations, is thrilled to announce its participation in the highly anticipated Rendez Vous conference. The event, slated to take place from May 14th to 17th, 2024, in Edmonton, Alberta, will bring together industry experts, thought leaders, and innovators in the travel and tourism sector.


Driftscape is at the forefront of revolutionizing how tourists experience destinations with a suite of tools and features designed to drive engagement, boost visibility, and foster sustainable tourism practices. Some of the pioneering strategies adopted by destinations, DMOs, RTOs, cultural organizations, and more through Driftscape include:


Interactive Destination Guide: Sitka, Alaska, recently opted for a more sustainable digital guide. By transforming static travel guides into dynamic, interactive experiences, destinations are leveraging Driftscape’s customizable guides to showcase unique attractions, events, and local businesses, allowing travelers to explore destinations like never before while saving costs on print collaterals. 


Augmented Reality Experiences: From virtual tours of historic sites to interactive exhibits in museums, and more, travelers can engage with destinations in a whole new dimension, enhancing their understanding and appreciation of local stories. North Perth, Ontario, successfully captivated thousands of 2023 Paddyfest attendees through Driftscape’s augmented reality scavenger hunt. The rate of engagement, among diverse age groups, by way of the scavenger hunt led to its repeat appearance in the 2024 event. 


Sharing the stories: Cultural organizations have been driving awareness of indigenous peoples for years. Driftscape’s audio tours and immersive storytelling capabilities helped the likes of Six Nations Tourism, First Story, and more educate their visitors about their history, language, and culture. 


Community Engagement Initiatives: Within Driftscape, Tourism Lethbridge created a convenient voting source for their contest, encouraging locals to vote for their favourite Hot Chocolate, garnering thousands of interactions. Similarly, the City of Elliot Lake took community engagement to the next level with its Rock the Holidays Tour driving community involvement in the People's Choice Award voting during Christmas 2024.


"We believe that technology has the power to transform the way people explore and connect with the world around them," says Dan Pronovost, Driftscape Co-founder and CEO. "At Rendez Vous, we're excited to showcase how Driftscape is leading the charge in enhancing the travel experience through immersive storytelling and digital innovation."


Rendez Vous provides a platform for networking, learning, and exploring the latest trends shaping the future of travel. From cutting-edge technology to groundbreaking strategies, the conference sets the stage for shaping the future of tourism, making it the perfect platform for Driftscape to showcase its groundbreaking solutions. 


"Two heads are better than one. Our partnership with Driftscape means we can continue to grow our network, provide engaging experiences to visitors and maintain ourselves as Manitoba’s Interlake, a tourism destination of choice!” Says Melissa Van Soelen, Manager, Interlake Tourism Association.


During the conference, attendees can visit Driftscape's booth (406B) to learn more about its innovative platform, explore live demonstrations, and engage in discussions about the future of travel technology.
