Visiting Media introduces a brand new program designed to elevate CVB/DMO content sharing and virtual tour syndication. CVB/DMOs can showcase a succinct, professional, lead-generating virtual site visit experience integrated perfectly into their websites and across multiple touchpoints on the web.
During the pandemic, CVB/DMOs have worked with their members to centralize conscientious messaging while aiding a recovery of their regional tourism. Many have become the main marketing engine of local hotels and attractions and been tasked with elevating their interactive content, showcasing members’ virtual tours all in one. Their challenge: patchworking together a mishmash of virtual tour technologies to resemble a succinct, user-friendly hub of experiences that (a) is intuitive to use, (b) looks consistent, (c) meets ADA standards and most importantly, (d) actually works to drive tourism and visitation to their communities both now and during the long run!
The volume of “virtual tours” and virtual technologies on the market can be overwhelming, with some more robust and visually beautiful than others. Not to mention the variety of integration techniques that are required of CVB/DMOs in order to syndicate all of these tours in one place. Visiting Media has long provides a solution to these pain points and is excited to introduce a sophisticated solution — and a way for CVB/DMOs to earn 360°/3D credit — as regions bounce back toward a stronger recovery!
Visiting Media helps CVBs empower their destination sales forces, showcasing visuals of key sights, destinations and lodging options on their behalf and in conjunction with properties within their region.
Visiting Media’s technology works like a digital ‘tool belt’ that can house ANY virtual tour technology in one platform, blend them all together with photos, videos, .pdfs, audio tutorials and more and deliver them into any website includes google, TripAdvisor and Cvent.
For CVB’s that have yet to invest in virtual tour technologies, Visiting Media’s TrueTour™ selling enablement platform, provided a NO cost to CVB’s, not only includes proprietary TrueTour™ 360 + 3D visual experiences of your community but also syndicates TrueTour™ content from any community hotel and attraction directly into your TrueTour™ selling tool. I know… it’s hard to imaging! Contact us and we’ll show you!

The Value in Longevity! Modern Content + Delivery Technology.
For more than a decade, Visiting Media has built the world’s most successful immersive selling tools for the attractions industry with a key goal of technology longevity in mind. With the COVID pandemic has come a flood of ‘quick fix’ virtual tour companies offering help to CVB teams that use old technology, have sub-par quality capabilities and have no proven ROI/outcomes data.
Visiting Media has spent years studying the effects that immersive content has on consumer behavior; we understand how to build an immersive content network that ‘grows with technology improvements’… one that is no siloed or static, but dynamic and alive on the internet. Our solutions are content agnostic and can integration literally any content, platform and website found on the internet into a single promotional/visual experience. Our platform has a command dashboard, giving us the freedom to update our visual experiences in real time, changing out older technologies with newer ones as they come along.
Nearly every 360 creator on earth still uses Google’s free 360 builder, introduced in 2007; these photographers are exactly that, photographers, not software engineers and developers! Seeing a need for ADA capabilities, robust tracking, faster speed and a better user experience, Visiting Media developed TrueTour™ 360, the world’s fastest and highest quality 360 player. TrueTour™ 360 is now used by thousands of hotels and resorts and many of the word’s top brands including Four Seasons, Fairmont, Accor, Sofitel, Raffles, Marriott, Hilton, Auberge, Kimpton, IHG, Ritz-Carlton, St. Regis, Viceroy and more.
Visiting Media is the global leader in developing 360, 3D and CGI integration capabilities for the hospitality industry and is partnered with nearly every major hotel and resort brand. Using our technology you can bountifully blend 360 + 3D throughout your website not ‘paste it on top’. Site visits experience your community while immersing themselves into your articles and profiles. All content is displayed inside your website and the user is never guided to a new tab and never sees a 3rd party logo or look/feel that differs from your website and organizations branding.
Because we already work with the hotels in your community and are growing our customer base quickly, our CVB solution syndicates/shares all local hotel content, not just 360 and 3D, with your sales team and into your website in real time, creating a content sharing powerhouse that’s perpetually growing day by day.
Why Blended 360+3D is Essential!
Like tools in a toolbelt, 360 visual experiences and 3D content motivate consumers differently. 360, for example, is great to convey the high level ‘feel’ of a place but’s it’s very ineffective as a virtual site inspection medium. 3D, on the other hand, conveys the flow of a space, from point a, to b, to c.. and then back to a… but 3D quality is low, you can use it outside (actually we can!) and creates a much more ‘techy’ user experience.
As the global leader in immersive content consumer phycology, we use our technology to blend 360 and 3D together, creating immersive ‘super experiences’ that give users a linear flow of immersive visuals designed to motivate action and decision making. In the hospitality industry, this blended 3D+360 approach has led to much higher ROI, higher website traffic, higher online/RFP conversions, more room upgrades and the eliminate of competing properties from consumer decision making.
