As tourists venture out to explore new destinations, outdoor information kiosks are increasingly becoming an essential tool for enhancing their experience. These interactive displays offer more than just practical information – they provide personalised recommendations, engaging experiences and even promote local businesses. In this blog post, we’ll explore the ways in which outdoor information kiosks are transforming the tourist experience, making it easier and more enjoyable for visitors to navigate unfamiliar surroundings and engage with the local culture.
Making it Easier to Navigate Unfamiliar Surroundings
One of the biggest challenges for tourists is getting around a new place. Outdoor information kiosks provide real-time information with maps, directions and transportation options that help visitors find their way. This is particularly useful for visitors who may not speak the local language or have limited knowledge of the area.
Making it easy for tourists to navigate an unfamiliar surrounding is beneficial for both businesses and cities for several reasons:
- Increased tourism: When tourists can easily navigate unfamiliar surroundings, they are more likely to visit and explore the city, which can lead to increased tourism revenue.
- Positive reputation: An easy to navigate city or business is more likely to develop a positive reputation among tourists. This helps attract more visitors and boost the local economy.
- Repeat business: Tourists who have a positive experience navigating unfamiliar surroundings are more likely to return in the future, leading to repeat business.
- Improved customer satisfaction: Making it easier for tourists to navigate unfamiliar surroundings can help to improve customer satisfaction. This leads to positive reviews and word-of-mouth recommendations.
- Increased spending: When tourists are able to easily find their way around, they are more likely to explore different areas of the city and spend money at local businesses, which helps boost the local economy.
Providing Personalised Recommendations
Outdoor information kiosks provide personalised recommendations based on a visitor’s interests, preferences and location. This includes suggestions for local restaurants, museums and other attractions that are tailored to the visitor’s tastes. By providing relevant and engaging information, outdoor information kiosks help visitors make the most of their time in the area.
Enhancing the Visitor Experience
Outdoor information kiosks can be more than just a source of practical information. They also provide engaging and interactive experiences that enhance the visitor’s understanding and appreciation of the local culture and history. For example, an outdoor information kiosk at a historical site might provide virtual tours, multimedia displays or interactive exhibits that bring the site to life.
Promoting Local Businesses and Attractions
Outdoor information kiosks can also be a valuable marketing tool for local businesses and attractions. By featuring information about nearby shops, restaurants, and other services, outdoor information kiosks help drive traffic and promote the local economy. Thus making them a great investment for cities and councils that want to boost their local economy. Furthermore, small businesses that may not have the resources to invest in traditional advertising can use these kiosks as a way to drive more business to their establishment.
Increasing Safety and Security
Outdoor information kiosks can also play an important role in promoting safety and security in public spaces. They provide emergency information and instructions, as well as real time updates about weather conditions, traffic and other potential hazards. This information can help visitors stay safe and avoid dangerous situations. A great example of this is our recent installation of an Outdoor Kiosk in Berwick, Victoria. This touchscreen informs the local community about what is going on around them and how they benefit. It also provided more safety, less congestion at a busy intersection by allowing passers by to see what crossings were like during peak hour. You can read more about it here.
In conclusion, outdoor information kiosks are transforming the tourist experience in a number of ways. By providing practical information, personalised recommendations, engaging experiences, and promotional opportunities, outdoor information kiosks are enhancing the visitor’s understanding and appreciation of their destination. And by promoting safety and security, they are helping to create a more welcoming and hospitable environment for tourists and locals alike.
