This library brilliantly captures the essence of our country
Vancouver, Canada (Vocus) July 29, 2010
With rising demand for eConcierge from travellers around the world, Contac Services, Canada's largest direct marketing, printing and fulfillment company, is pleased to announce it has expanded the eConcierge platform by adding a spectacular library of Canadian images and videos from the Canadian Tourism Commission (CTC) today.
The eConcierge platform provides travellers with a unique and engaging vacation experience by providing a personalized website that is created just for them. Using the website, travellers are able to view their itinerary and share the details with friends and family through their Twitter and Facebook profiles. eConcierge also provides a powerful travel organizer where users can view past or upcoming trips and add photos to create a virtual scrap book of their travels. Adding to this already remarkable platform is the addition of the impressive library of Canadian images and videos amassed by the CTC.
Collecting this extensive library was no easy feat. The CTC sent film crews from coast to coast to capture Canada's symbolic beauty to develop a truly remarkable travel experience. The library provides a broad range of images and video that are visually stunning. Among the library are such iconic gems as views of the coastal cities of Vancouver and Victoria, the dramatic natural wonders of Whitehorse, the elegant scenes of the country's capital in Ottawa, the night-life of Toronto and Montreal and the unique beauty of the Atlantic provinces.
These are Canadian-wide places where eConcierge travellers can explore shopping, museums, galleries, nightclubs, world-class cuisine and theatre without missing a beat. With help from the CTC, no matter the Canadian destination, inspiration is always within easy reach with eConcierge.
"This library brilliantly captures the essence of our country," says Walid Salem, Executive Director, E-Marketing with the CTC. "It will inspire anyone with an appetite for new and unexpected travel experiences. We hope it promises a trip less ordinary and turns it into something extraordinary."
"We're thrilled to add this truly spectacular library to the eConcierge platform," says Contac's President and CEO, Riaz Pisani, "I applaud the CTC for giving visitors a reason to explore our amazing country."
