Harness the Power of Multi-Property Sales with TrueTour™ HUB Technology

The Power of the Beacon: Marketing to Your Immediate Target Market

New TrueTour Transponder BeaconImagine holding a small beacon in your pocket, which you have programmed with a powerful strategic message perfect for the environment you find yourself in – perhaps a trade show floor or a festival event.
