What’s billed as an engaging way for people to find and learn more about popular tourist locations and local points of interest has been set up.
Tourism North Bay and its partners have strategically placed four digital kiosks at high-traffic visitor locations around the city.
They include the Ontario Northland bus terminal, Jack Garland Airport, city hall and Laurentian Ski Hill.
“This initiative was part of the Tourism Recovery Fund project announced earlier this year which included website enhancements, new product development and marketing focusing specifically on the Downtown and Waterfront district,” says Tanya Bédard, Executive Director of Tourism North Bay. “Thanks to the project partners and funding support from FEDNOR, these new digital kiosks will help to highlight popular tourist attractions and encourage the user to visit the city’s downtown core and waterfront area.”
There are currently 15 points of interest highlighted with a story and 3D image.
Officials say other key destinations and programming features will be added by 2025.
They also say the location of a fifth kiosk will be confirmed and announced early in the new year.
