With one single API integration, more CVBs, DMOs, and event promoters will be able to more easily access and sell their in-destination experiences
Boulder, CO (September 9, 2020) – Redeam, the leading and only independent global connectivity stack with digitized channel management and voucher redemption/reconciliation solutions for the Experiences industry, and Bandwango, the travel technology platform that empowers DMOs, CVBs and other event or destination promoters to offer dynamically curated, digitally delivered experience passports for both visitors and locals to enjoy, today announced a new joint partnership to facilitate a single integration point for Bandwango customers’ distribution and fulfillment. Bandwango, a Utah-based company that works with more than 150 travel + tourism clients across the United States and Canada to launch ticketed experiences that enhance a visitor’s trip, seeks to expose its product passes at mass scale, providing its customers with exposure and distribution opportunities without the manual requirement of order processing. Bandwango technology is built on mobile web applications, so it looks and feels like a mobile app without the hassle of app store downloads, storage space, or the constant requirement of app updates. Redeam, with its vast ecosystem of ready-built integrations to OTAs and other resellers, provides immediate and direct accessibility to a whole new marketplace and positive economic gains to all existing and future Bandwango destination clients and their local businesses.
“Bandwango really occupies a much-needed niche space in the Experiences sector of travel – to enable destinations to productize and retail Experiences in ways they may not have been able to do or thought to do before. We couldn’t be more pleased to forge this partnership with Bandwango so that their customers can take advantage of our ever-growing bi-directional API connections, our automation, and our continued efforts to bring paperless, contactless solutions to the industry.”
“Bandwango’s goal with our partner destinations is to maximize the economic impact that they can deliver to their local businesses. Success inherently comes from increasing distribution of the variety of products that we develop with these destinations. The Redeam partnership is a significant milestone for us because it allows Bandwango to offer substantially more distribution channel opportunities to our clients through one single API integration – maximizing product exposure and automating fulfillment in order to deliver more customers through the doors of their local businesses.”
