Virtual reality adds to tourism through touch, smell and real people's experiences

Virtual reality adds to tourism through touch, smell and real people's experiences | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

The term virtual reality is most commonly used to describe what happens when you are completely immersed in a virtual environment you can see through a headset. Enhanced forms of virtual reality allow you to interact with that environment using extra equipment, such as gloves fitted with sensors. Virtual reality can be more than a mirror that gives you a realistic simulation of the current world: it can bring the past into the present. 

 

VR films are being developed by travel companies, such as Thomas Cook. And Tourism Australia has partnered with Google to understand the marketing potential of VR (well, 360 degree panoramic videos).

 

But VR tourism isn’t only about recreating a virtual version of reality that renders travel to the destination unnecessary. It can enhance tourism in other ways – by allowing tourists to handle precious historical artefacts in virtual form, or by retelling contested histories from previously unexplored perspectives.

New campaign to attract more Chinese travellers to Australia

New campaign to attract more Chinese travellers to Australia | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Tourism has launched a new campaign in China to attract an emerging and lucrative type of Chinese visitor to Australia, commonly known as the free and independent traveller (FIT).

 

FITs tend to be younger, more adventurous and are willing to get out of their comfort zone. We know adventure appeals to FITs and this campaign highlights Australia’s vast array of action-packed and ‘out of the box’ experiences that can be enjoyed beyond the major cities, such as diving with crocodiles in the Northern Territory or being surrounded by nature in a bubble tent in Capertree, New South Wales. Find out more here. 

 

Tourism Research Australia has also released a report  providing insights into the Chinese FIT market. The report finds Chinese FITs are also more likely to stay over three times longer than those on an organised group tour, which presents a great opportunity for Australia’s regional tourism offerings given the strong correlation between length of stay and likelihood to travel beyond Australia’s gateways and iconic attractions.

Today, brand loyalty doesn’t start when a traveller joins a rewards program, it starts with a great experience. The key to delivering that great experience is by gathering the right data and using it to gain insights into each traveler’s behavior and preferences. That data can then help unlock a greater share of wallet, and share of travel. But even at a time when travel brands appear to have more guest and traveler data than ever before, it seems as if existing efforts to build stronger loyalty are falling short. Find out more here
