Bring Visitors In—and Keep Them Exploring

With the app, users can find information on businesses and attractions near them, plan visits, take curated tours, mark and store favorite locations, and even earn points towards prizes and badges by visiting participating locations. In short, it’s like virtual local concierge right at their fingertips.

The Explorer App is already increasing foot traffic and visitor engagement for communities across North America. And now more than ever, visitors and shoppers are eager to explore and hungry for new experiences. Make sure they get the most from your community with a branded Explorer App.
