April 15th, 2021 | Ontario, Canada - Ontario’s four season playground, South Georgian Bay, is pleased to announce the launch of its newest partnership, aimed at helping empower its locals and visitors with safe tourism while enhancing their exploration experience, with the Driftscape app - a Canada based tourism app company.
With over 20 South Georgian Bay highlights currently mapped in the Driftscape app, and more to come, locals and visitors of the Bay will now be able to tour, explore and discover the heritage of Collingwood, quaint village of The Blue Mountains and Meaford, sandy shores of Wasaga Beach, rustic charm of Clearview and many other of its hidden gems from the comfort of their fingertips, a game changing approach to tourism - starting April 15th, 2021!
“South Georgian Bay Tourism Association wanted an app that was dynamic, user
friendly and provided interactive content about all the great things there are to do in our four season destination. Due to changes in travel behaviours, we needed to re-imagine our offerings to travel consumers to those that are more technology-based.”
Says Melissa Twist
The app will also enable our member organizations to:
Create self-guided tours across their local area: Using audio, video and images, South Georgian Bay will soon be able to give their visitors a completely guided experience without the need for a personal guide or guidebook, while also helping create a COVID safe experience!
Deliver valuable and real-time information: In a way that appeals to their visitors and locals the most, while helping them safely and conveniently plan their trip - even if on the go!
Notify visitors about unique local businesses and tourism highlights that surround them, as they explore the region.
Locals can now also “couch-surf” and discover various places, within and outside the region, with the Driftscape app!
What’s more: with the help of Driftscape app’s Augmented Reality mode (available only to iOS users), Offline mode and other unique features, South Georgian Bay Tourism has successfully added an extra edge to our visitor experience.
