Here in Destinations’GO we track the stories worth telling that follow travel and technology trends, discuss product and service developments, highlight partner destinations and feature exemplary in-market passes as well as speak to the potential of Bandwango and our DXE for every destination marketer out there.

When we can see a trend among travel industry pillars like hotels and outfitters catering to a new audience type—that of affluent, location-independent professionals inflicted with a nomadic wanderlust—we see how “luxury” offerings can be redefined and expressed in a context appealing to that traveler type.
For destinations, catering to visitors and inspiring locals who may not be always looking for the slope-most-skied is a great way to appeal to an even larger number of people, add a little diversity to the ski trip, or bolster the shoulder season.
Through Bandwango, DMOs are offering better ways for visitors to get the most out of a destination, or for locals to engage more in their own backyard. And since all of Bandwango’s DXE products are mobile-optimized web pages delivered instantly to a customer’s phone, it’s better than a golden ticket.
Arts-centric passes with Bandwango integrate tourism with local engagement and can transport a visitor’s in-destination experience to the unlimited worlds of creativity, performance and story.
