Here are a few “vignettes” of how Bandwango could work in your destination
Promoting Arts And Culture
Susan is the marketing VP for her small county’s tourism board. She uses the Bandwango Destination Experience Engine (DXE) to offer an all-access pass for a certain period of time to all of the county’s museums. She doesn’t have to worry about crunching any numbers to reimburse the attractions, Bandwango does all of that for her every month.
Enticing Visitors With Golf Courses
Jim is the executive VP of marketing in a large city. He uses the Bandwango DXE to entice travelers to enjoy a number of world-class golf resorts in town. It’s a great way to promote the area to a specific type of traveler they’ve long wanted to better reach. And with the data from golf passport sales, he can get a better grasp on just who is coming to golf, and from where.
Celebrating Craft Brewing
Rebecca is on the marketing team of a Regional DMO anchored by a mid-sized city famous for its micro breweries. She uses the Bandwango DXE to create a brewery tour and Ale Trail. It becomes incredibly popular among the conventioneers that come to town, and by the end of the year, she can see exactly how much economic impact, in real dollars, this mobile pass drove to the 10 breweries listed on the pass.
Digital Passes as powered by Bandwango embody the next generation of mobile, customized, and experience-based travel. The targeting capability of these passes combined with instant availability and convenience is a powerful way for marketers to exceed the expectations of the modern consumer.

Easy Redemption For Vendors
Our seamless redemption process works for all business, big and small, and can be customized depending on each vendor’s point-of-sale parameters or preference. It couldn’t be easier for customers either, as all it takes is presenting the pass to the venue. See? Easy.
