We had our 2019 annual Vamoos Partner event on Tuesday, and it was a really great evening!
It was a good opportunity to remind our partners of all the amazing things we did in 2018, including the release of a number of really useful features that our partners asked for. We also gave our partners a sneak peak at what they could expect to see from us in 2019…
We held some break out sessions on topics we thought would be useful for our partners to hear and discuss with their fellow Vamoos community, including:
– Better understanding of 2 of our newest features, Creations (our itinerary builder) and InstantView (our quote tool), and how to get the most out of these features
– How to promote Vamoos to customers and tools to do this effectively to ensure that the end users are getting the best customer experience possible
– Ideas on how to guide end users through their Vamoos journey using different touch points
– A think tank session to feedback on the app and share ideas about new or improved features
We then had our highly anticipated awards ceremony, where we were able to recognise some of our partners and the amazing ways they are using Vamoos.
The Most Original Way of Using Vamoos
WINNER – NST
NST is a school touring company, and uses Vamoos as an effective way to communicate to teachers and group leaders information about their trips.
HIGHLY COMMENDED – LUXURY COTSWOLD RENTALS
LCR were highly commended in this category because of their amazing use of our Points of Interest feature. They have over 1600 POIs in the Cotswolds alone, ranging from hidden gems to helpful need to knows.
The Best Vamoos Promotion
WINNER – IMAGINE TRAVEL
Imagine Travel have gone above and beyond promoting their app on their website, in emails, in brochures, guidebooks, handouts – you name it! They understand the importance of the Vamoos experience and aim to get this message across in every way possible.
The Best Use of Vamoos:
WINNER – MAGNETIC NORTH
Unfortunately no one from Magnetic North could make the event, but we were absolutely blown away by how great not only their app looked, but also how well they had started using our newest features like the itinerary builder and flight alerts.
HIGHLY COMMENDED – HENRIETTA FERGUSON
Henrietta Ferguson were highly commended in this category as they have stunning Vamoos itineraries and use great imagery to impress their clients. They used all the Vamoos features really well, especially the storyboards and points of interest.
Well done to all of our award winners and thank you to everyone who nominated – we look forward to doing it all again next year!
This might sound harsh. But if travel companies tried to differentiate themselves based on product alone, it would be impossible.
A brand’s tone of voice is how it says what it says. And, in today’s market, how you say what you say is every bit as important as the content itself.
Visual tools are equally important as what your company says and how they say it in making yourself stand out from the crowd and communicate with your kind of traveller.
