Your visitors want to eat like locals.
More travelers than ever are looking to experience destinations like locals do, especially when it comes to where they stay, shop, and eat. In fact, 75% of travelers say local dining is an important part of their vacation experience. Yet while they’d never book a stay on Airbnb without first seeing real, quality photos of every corner of a place, getting access to similar information about local restaurants before they decide where to eat is next to impossible.
You know that local food content is essential to success.
Destination marketers are working to create food content to inspire and guide their visitors, but cite a lack of time and budget as reasons why they feel their efforts are falling short of their goals. Only 10% of DMOs say their food and beverage offerings are being adequately promoted.
Imagine the impact you could have if you could share every story about the best local food and never have to worry about developing or creating the content yourself.
Your visitors could feel like insiders and easily find the food that's just right for their taste, preference, and mood?
Your website always had detailed and visual information about the best dishes being served right now by your member restaurants?
You could attract more organic traffic and generate more referrals to your members without adding more work for you and your team?
