Share Article

Hyatt Hotels Corporation recommends Hyatt properties in North America and the Caribbean sign up for VT360 Virtual Tour Content Distribution.

With VT360's past year's great success providing Virtual Tour and Image Content Distribution for Major Hotel Chains, various Hyatt properties renew distribution agreements to benefit from increased brand recognition on all the major Travel Channels.

"VT360 has been a successful Hyatt image vendor since 2001 on Hyatt.com and with their new and continually progressive distribution partnerships, they have helped our properties improve their content across major travel sites and meeting planning web sites." said Joan Lowell - Vice President, Electronic Distribution, Hyatt Corporation.

"Hyatt has always been a pleasure to work with," said Brian Stearns, CEO of VT360. "We are thrilled at the opportunity to help Hyatt with their global distribution of all property content, and to ensure that the quality of the new VT360 images distributed on the travel channels is the industry's best quality."

VT360's 3rd party distribution program offers high resolution image capture with detailed post-production followed by distribution on major travel sites, over 4,500 affiliate sites and a host of meeting planning sites. VT360 has strengthened its program with "add-on services" that include VT360's new TruVoice™ Multilingual Virtual Tour Narration, along with desktop Virtual Tours.

"Our new multilingual voice narration is a forward thinking step to help our hotel customers achieve true global appeal. The new voice product will be built into the distribution display, easily allowing the end-user to select their preferred language. The abundance of information gained will be far beyond what older virtual tour technology delivered "said Stearns.”
