The Rise of the Emerging Market Traveler Sponsored This content is created collaboratively with one of our sponsors.
Despite stalled growth in China, Brazil and Russia, a wave of newly middle-class travelers from the BRICs and beyond will start visiting international destinations in the coming decades — dwarfing the numbers we’ve seen thus far.
The apps have real utility outside of a simple marketing tool. They are built so that travelers can have access to the information they’re used to even when offline.
Planning a trip to the Adirondacks? There’s an app for that.
The developers say travelers can use the app even if data and wi-fi are unavailable to find recreation, lodging, dining and other information.
Categories include winter recreation, rock and ice climbing routes, hiking trails, canoe and kayaking areas, shopping, dining, lodging, and events and attractions.
The app complements January’s launch of the Adirondack Trip Planning web portal at VisitAdirondacks.com.
Funding for the project came from a state “Market NY” grant and the Center for Economic Growth.
