Eventz International Corporation announces a collaboration with Visit Finland to serve better its new customer segment of ‘Visit –organizations’ in the tourism sector.
Collaboration with Visit Finland, the government marketing agency of Finland, allows Eventz.today portal customers to seamlessly utilize the nation-wide content management system and resource for sights, tour operators, hospitality companies and experiences. Once completed, the collaboration provides Eventz.today Visit Portal customers a continuously updated and translated content in many languages, and real-time with a click of a button.
Mikko Lintunen, CEO of Eventz International Corp. said:
“We are very excited about the future opportunities our close collaboration with Visit Finland will bring to our portal customers. Local tourism authorities and visit organisations will save considerable amount of time and resources when the massive content catalogue of Finnish tourism and travel related companies’ products and services can be brought to life in our beautiful and easy to use Visit Portals. Better quality content and services with lesser effort – that’s what we stand for.
The Visit Finland integration will be launched with the City of Vantaa on the Finnish Travel Expo in January 2020. Already several cities, tourism authorities and regional councils have expressed their interest in the new offer.
Kaisa Kosonen, Head of Digital Development at Visit Finland said:
Our aim is to make sure that Finnish travel offering is easily accessible, up to date and of highest quality in the different digital channels that the travelers are using, being the DMO website, Visit Finland website or one of the global digital channels. Working together to maintain open travel data in a shared data hub is a way to make this happen and it is great to have agile companies like Eventz International Corp to make it easy for the DMO’s to make use of the data. We look forward to seeing many great new DMO websites in the near future using the open travel data.
