“Manitoba is full of unique places to explore. Congratulations to Eastman Tourism for developing a new and accessible way to welcome and help visitors discover the many things to do in the region. The travel discovery app will connect visitors to exciting attractions and all that eastern Manitoba has to offer.”
The Honourable Dan Vandal, Minister for PrairiesCan
Eastman comprises the eastern region of Manitoba, an area of more than 20,000 square kms east of Winnipeg, the province's capital, from the US border to the shores of Lake Winnipeg. The region boasts an abundance of natural attractions - lakes, rivers, wildlife, 22 provincial parks and forests - and a rich history. The region's waterways are a mecca for boating, fishing, and aquatic adventures while the land offers countless opportunities for camping, biking, off-roading or discovering the region's bounty at farmer's markets or foraging for wild edibles. An area rich in indigenous and Métis traditions offers ample opportunity to explore history and culture across eastern Manitoba. An array of resorts, lodges and campgrounds is available throughout the region, along with restaurants and unique shopping experiences.
Leveraging Driftscape's digital tourism technology Eastman Tourism aims to create unique and interactive experiences - helping visitors connect with the region's attractions. Through the Driftscape app, visitors can now stay updated with the latest information pertaining to the Manitoba region, see its offerings, plan ahead, find events they are interested in, and uncover amazing local businesses to shop at - all through their smartphone.
Packed with several features such as Augmented Reality Mode, Tour Autoplay, Quests, Trip Itineraries and more, Driftscape has empowered Eastman to equip its locals and visitors with a whole new lens for exploring the town, and its surrounding area starting 2023!
