An official NewcastleGateshead City Guide iPhone app (application)
has been launched by the local convention bureau.
The app includes up-to-date
information on festivals and events in the region as well as interactive maps
with attraction and venue recommendations. The bureau’s website has also seen an
overhaul to reflect the destination’s uptake of new technology.
NewcastleGateshead Convention Bureau (CVB) claims it is one of the first to be developed and used by a tourism
organisation in the UK and
gives visitors and conference delegates a hands-on approach to Newcastle and Gateshead.
“NewcastleGateshead is one of the
first UK destinations to fully embrace the possibilities offered by mobile
technology, and alongside the convention bureau’s delegate welcome
pack the app is a great interactive tool for anyone attending a meeting,
conference or event in the destination, and is a welcome addition that can only
enhance the overall visitor experience,” says Head of Business Tourism at the
CVB, Jessica Roberts.
