TGI’s illustrated visitor maps were originally created to serve travelers directly. Sold at retail outlets, they quickly gained popularity among travelers. Our retail sales were soon overshadowed by corporate sales, however, as businesses in a variety of industries discovered that our illustrated maps were a unique way to connect with their customers. Our print and interactive products and services are now in use in such industries as travel and hospitality, destination marketing, convention and meeting planning, health care, education, local government and business organizations, residential and commercial real estate, and more. We have discovered as many uses for our maps as there are businesses seeking to connect with customers.
Hotels, resorts and vacation ownership properties form the core of our business. We have longstanding relationships with many major brands to provide customized hotel maps for their guests. Our maps can be customized to show the location of multiple properties, encourage guests to visit an affiliated vacation ownership property, steer guests towards on-property activities or preferred third-party vendors, and more. We print maps in multiple languages and have been commissioned to create custom resort property maps. Of special interest are our customized online maps and virtual concierge app, both of which help our clients engage their guests during the all-important pre-arrival period.
Cities both large and small use our illustrated maps — either stock or customized. In addition to the obvious distribution to visitors, savvy CVBs and chambers employ customized maps as member benefit. Customized print and online maps can also be printed in large quantities as gifts to help entice professional meetings to select their locale for an annual meeting.
The combination of customized interactive online maps, fully customized “virtual meeting concierge” app, and customized print maps can create a 4-way win for meeting planners, meeting hosts, sponsors, and attendees.
