The Remote Control Tourists Who Check Out The City Before You Book Your Trip

The Remote Control Tourists Who Check Out The City Before You Book Your Trip | www.thetravelnews.it | Scoop.it

Visiting Australia is now just a tweet away.

Remote Control Tourist lets anyone with an Internet connection explore Melbourne, Australia. Here's how it works: A pair of real people document their travels through the city, but their itineraries are completely controlled by social-media users.

You can send suggestions via Twitter and Facebook to the twosome, who will follow your cues: They'll see the sights you request, eat at your suggested restaurants and complete all the touristy adventures you can think up.

The pair of tourists are armed with helmet-mounted cameras that let them stream live video and audio, meaning users can experience every street, park and local coffee shop in real-time. Throughout their travels in Melbourne, the tourists will comment on what they're seeing and doing, creating a living city guide.

The article should go deeper in the information provided in order to give the readers a complete report of the benefits of Music Tourism in the UK. Information about the biggest festivals, music genres and visitors profiles could be very interesting in order to encourage future promoters or artists to become active in the music business.

 

Pros: as the government work closely with promoters and venue owners, more platforms and strategies will be created to deliver bigger and more creative opportunities to the music scene, not just in the UK, but in the world as they would become a reference for other countries.

Cons: while encouraging other cities (Eg Liverpool) to deliver strategies to gain local music tourism, market share would need to be splited with the new players, which in terms on revenue, will present a decrease.
