NORTH PERTH – The Municipality of North Perth and Driftscape are pleased to announce the launch of their partnership. Aimed to digitize the municipality’s tourism experiences, this new initiative will help North Perth equip its growing community and visitors with a modern-day guide to all its highlights – allowing them to tour and discover in a safe yet engaging way, on-location and from the comfort of their homes.
“We are excited to join Driftscape’s innovative and easy-to-use app to share the diverse experiences, events and food options North Perth offers,” says Kimberley Kowch, community development coordinator for the Municipality of North Perth. “Sharing ‘things to do’ in a new and fun way with younger visitors and residents will support our youth attraction and retention efforts and bolster our economic growth. Already used broadly across Ontario and nationally, Driftscape will expand our reach to a new audience as they travel through our area plus reach locals looking for fresh options to learn, explore and discover within their community.
“Recreation and food options are key in relocation decision-making.”
With COVID restrictions relaxing, people have been on the lookout for experiences to enjoy and new ways to learn more about their surroundings.
Keeping this need in mind, the municipality has mapped over 30 such local points of interest in the Driftscape app; ranging from recreational opportunities, dining experiences, local businesses, events, hiking trails to much more, creating a unique exploration opportunity for its tourists and local residents.
Packed with several user engagement features such as self-guided audio tours, interactive quests, offline mode, shareable trip itineraries, and more, Driftscape has empowered the municipality to enhance its visitor experiences successfully.
Additionally, the app will help the municipality:
Deliver valuable and real-time information – in a way that appeals to their visitors and locals the most, while helping them safely and conveniently plan their trip – even if on the go.
Notify visitors about unique local businesses and tourism highlights that surround them, as they explore the region.
Locals can now also “couch-surf” and discover various places, within and outside the region, with the Driftscape app.
This platform will evolve as new experiences, events and food options expand. It will feature the amazing ways to explore and discover North Perth of particular interest to youth and young families to which this platform appeals.
