Corporate Outdooractive News
80% of all information is perceived through the eyes. Images play a very special role here. They arouse emotions and desires, can fascinate, inspire and impress. Our newly integrated image layer in the map layer is intended to focus more on the significance of images for our users.
A few months ago governments and individuals would have never imagined the state that we find ourselves in today. Within weeks, we all eventually realized: we are in this together. This is a crisis across all nations, industries and individuals.
At first, the crisis had a paralyzing effect on all of us. Due to the lack of experience, no-one was sure how to react and before we knew it, we were in the middle of a worldwide pandemic.
Even so, companies and economic branches have already learned from the past: it is important to react to a crisis, share relevant information and inform stakeholders, guests and buyers accordingly. Slowly, communication and actions have started to spread widely across the globe.
Despite the physical separation that has been forced on us at the moment, our ability to communicate with one another online remains available and – as it has always been – the key to securing your business’ future and enabling it to flourish when current restrictions are lifted.
Your guests will be hugely relieved to be able to get out there and enjoy some freedom and so, in preparation for then, you can work now to improve the very thing that represents you and can deliver continued value: your content.
“We have been carrying out our work since 2009 to ensure that options for accessible leisure and vacations are expanded and made visible to guests. It is now only logical that we now include the existing information on accessibility in our travel planner, ”
explains Stefan Zindler, Managing Director of Rheinland-Pfalz Tourismus GmbH.
We find ourselves in a period of considerable uncertainty, with nobody knowing quite what the next steps are or the decisions that will be made. Entire countries, individuals and the tourism industry as a whole are being widely impacted by the measures that have been taken to combat the spread of Covid-19. Those who may have underestimated this impact initially should realize by now that, whilst the world keeps spinning, we can only really take one day at a time.
“Establishing the “Digitize the Planet” association makes us all very proud. Something is being done instead of just talking about what is needed and what is missing. It is a demanding task and there is a lot of work ahead of us, but I’m really looking forward to it. “
This was the remark of Mathias Behrens-Egge (of BTE Tourismus- und Regionalberatung), one of the founding members of the non-profit association, which launched on Thursday, March 5, 2020 in Berlin.
We are delighted to announce that Outdooractive has acquired mountNpass, France’s market leader for cycling tourism. Whilst mountNpass will maintain its brand identity, this latest step in Outdooractive’s journey represents its effort to develop its product line and market its services to a more international audience.
It is with great pride and pleasure that we can now announce the shortlist for the 2020 Outdooractive Awards. These partners of Outdooractive showed high commitment and dedication to generating content on the Outdooractive platform. Their important contribution inspires millions of outdoor enthusiasts. Given the current situation and the cancellation of the ITB, the awards ceremony has been postponed until further notice.
