Build Relationships with Locals

Discover the source of your destination’s experience supply.

Destinations are unique because of the people that define the culture. We discover groups of growers, creators, and storytellers regardless of their participation in the tourism economy.

This process constantly reveals new people to discover as we traverse these complex social networks.

Leverage Unique Voices, Stories, and Skills

Locals have interesting gifts to share.

In the process of building relationships with locals interested in participating in your experience marketplace, we take the time to learn their unique gifts that locals can share with their visitors.

We do not script their offerings. Instead we empower locals to express in their voice which reflects the unique culture of your destination.

The result is a rich supply of genuine experiences aligned with your destination brand.

Package and Bundle

Multiply value.

Often, assembling an experience from two or more offerings moves the experience from interesting to transformative. We attempt to find opportunities to optimize offerings from the social network we discover in your destination.

These experiences activate Main Street businesses and anchor attractions to provide higher visitor satisfaction and cross-section competitiveness. These packages are highlighted on our online marketplace for visitors to discover and purchase.

Social networks must be nurtured.

We support the tourism entrepreneurs in your destination with a marketplace to sell their offerings and assistance with copy development, scheduling, and promotion.

These efforts are capped with periodic P1t Renezvous that act as networking opportunities, team building, and celebrations of their efforts in your destination.

Engaging with Citizens and Industry to Promote Positive Community Outcomes

“The way to do it is to engage with micro entrepreneurs … and build partnerships between them and the local hospitality industry … and civic organizations."
