June 1st, 2020 | Ontario, CA – The Brockville & District Chamber of Commerce Tourism Organization and Driftscape, a Canada based tech start-up, are pleased to announce their partnership.
Through this partnership Brockville will display its many historic landmarks and attractions via the Driftscape app, helping people explore the city in a more engaging and unique way. The partnership also helps the city’s tourism during the COVID era, by creating virtual adventures across Brockville for its visitors to go on - helping maintain the social distancing and isolation norms while driving awareness about the city’s highlights.
“As the organization responsible for Tourism in the City of Brockville, our goal is to promote all that Brockville has to offer and help our visitors find everything in Brockville when they arrive.” Says Pam Robertson, Executive Director of the Chamber. “We are thrilled that the Driftscape APP not only provides visitors with information while they are in our City, but allows for our own photos, videos and audio tours to be placed on the APP. It is an incredible promotional opportunity for Brockville & 1000 Islands to be top of mind for those who haven’t visited us yet.”
“At Driftscape our mission is to make local culture easier to discover; we’re happy to be a part of the effort to make Brockville easier to explore. It’s such a unique place with so much to see, and we hope that Driftscape will enrich visitors’ experiences and create new opportunities to discover all that Brockville has to offer.” Says Chloe Doesburg, CEO Driftscape
