Grand Rapids Restaurant Week encourages repeat visitation with return offers
Grand Rapids Restaurant Week switched gears this year with a digital passport powered by Bandwango. Diners can use the pass to check in at participating restaurants for dine in or carry out, but the real kicker is that diners will receive a return visit coupon at every restaurant they check in to. The return offers range from a free dessert offer to a meal discount and will appear within the Bandwango pass. All those offers all redeemable through October 15, 2020 even though Restaurant Week only lasts from August 5-15. Talk about extending the life of a passport!
Great Rivers and Routes Walk with Lincoln Tour uses sound snippets to bring the past to life
Alton, Illinois is the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln. The DMO took their existing self-guided tour and kicked it up a notch with The Walk with Lincoln Tour. This digital passport connects ten historic sites in Alton relating to Lincoln’s time and the city’s connections to the Civil War. The digital passport takes visitors to each of the sites where they will find interpretive panels that further tell the story of each site and Alton’s connections to American history. Best of all, the DMO included recordings that accompany the interpretive panels and further detail the location’s connection to Lincoln and the Civil War.
Fraser, Colorado’s Mountain Mural Festival gets a digital makeover
Fraser, Colorado’s Mountain Mural Festival couldn’t take place this year like it normally would, but that didn’t mean it had to be cancelled altogether… Bandwango powered their digital solution, the Fraser Mountain Mural Walk, which featured a guide to the 20 murals along the walk with check-ins along the route. It also included savings and discounts at nearby locations so Mural Walk attendees could dine and shop with deals at their fingertips. The digital passport linked to the festival’s silent auction page and to a page where passholders could vote for their favorite mural.
This creative solution resulted in 443 sign-ups, 3,538 check-ins at murals along the walk.
