The Tourz2Go.Com Reusable MP3 Players or Web Downloads Offer “Green” Gifts that Include Walking Tours Customized Messages, Paperless Materials, and More
EAST HARTFORD, CONN., (May 11, 2012) – Companies and associations looking for new, affordable ways to “green” their meetings and events have found an attractive, engaging solution: MP3 players and web downloads from Tourz2Go.com. The colorful, reusable MP3 players include pre-recorded customized corporate messages, a walking tour of a city where the meeting is held, and a USB connector to access meeting content (PDFs, word documents, PowerPoint presentations, and more). The secure web downloads also include walking tours, customized messages, and links to additional relevant content.
Tourz2Go launched this service in 2011 and has seen tremendous growth among companies trying to cut costs and reduce environmental impact of its meetings and events. Clients have used the MP3 players to replace printed sales manuals, to deliver presentation materials to large audiences, or simply to thank meeting attendees with a reusable gift that gets them out walking and exploring a host city.
The web downloads also have proven to be an affordable way to achieve “green” goals. Meeting attendees download event content and walking tours directly onto their own MP3 player or other portable audio device (including a smartphone, iPod, or iPad). Some clients give the web address and pass code to meeting attendees before the event to build excitement, to capture their attention early, or to help them plan their time to take advantage of the walking tour.
“Companies are more sensitive about using their meeting and conference budgets in greener, more responsible ways, such as with reusable items that save paper and that are meaningful to attendees,” said Ali Ginnett, owner and founder of Tourz2Go. “Our MP3 players and web page downloads are affordable, have minimal or even zero packaging, are entirely reusable. Companies are finding countless innovative ways to use Tourz2Go.com to record messages, make announcements, capture the attention of their key audience, and reduce environmental impact, all at once.”
Each tour is professionally recorded and contains historical highlights and information, points of interest, details about the culture of a city, and other valuable information. Companies can add a message at the beginning, middle or end of each tour, which is either recorded by the company executive or by a professional voice over actor (coordinated through Tourz2Go). The MP3 players can be presented in either a velvet pouch or gift box, and include a printed map of the location – all of which serve as branding opportunities for companies or sponsors.
The web downloads option provides an affordable and highly entertaining opportunity for associations to offer their sponsors as a way to reach meeting attendees. Sponsoring organizations are able to include their logo on the web page, and can include their message points in any customized recordings.
Tourz2Go is able to create digital walking tours for any destination, including top U.S. cities: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Denver, Hartford, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, San Antonio, San Francisco, Savannah, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.
Touz2Go.com was created by meeting industry veterans and technology experts who combine some of today’s most entertaining technology with customizable walking tours. The company is the first of its kind in the U.S.
