There are two reasons that people come to your website. First is to see what events are happening and when. The second is for those actually coming to an event at the fairground. They want to know how to get there.
Right now, they buy a ticket, then are on their own to get there. And while it is useful to have driving directions and a list of preferred hotels, we think there is a smarter way to get people to you.
For the first time, there is an easy way to help visitors get to the fairgrounds. Whether they are driving or flying and whether they are local or from out of town. With TripProximity, your event site becomes a 24-hour concierge that provides an integrated answer: “at a hotel nearby.”
Make individuals’ decision to attend your events even easier. By integrating the TripProximity widget your guests save time planning the logistics surrounding your event. You can use our standard venue widget and provide that link to each meeting planner, or you can use our dynamic tool and for each event that has its own landing page, you can insert the widget and pass parameters from your page (such as event name and dates) so that each event in essence has its own customized smart planning tool.
The TripProximity widget can replace your existing map tool or static driving directions to your facility. Then guests can book hotel, flight or get dynamic driving directions to your location, versus just “from downtown” or “from the airport”. You free your guests from having to lookup your address. And if you are using our dynamic tool, the widget pre-populates the event date and your location information automatically.
We can easily set the colors to match your site and you can include your photo right in the widget.
With our dynamic widget, if you have an online RSVP system, you can link the photo to the RSVP system. If you have high end guests, you can set the widget to show only 4 and 5 star hotels. If your guests are on a budget, you can elect to show 1 and 2 star hotels, in addition to higher end properties.
With TripProximity, every trip can matter to the charities you support. A percentage of the proceeds from travel bookings to the events held in your facility are given to your charity of choice.
The TripProximity widget conforms to the HTML container added to your site. Choosing a location near your guests’ decision points creates greater value for you.
