KING OF PRUSSIA, PA – The Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board just made planning a Montgomery County experience one step easier.
Visitors to valleyforge.org can now book experiences and tours directly through the website, thanks to a new integration with OnceThere, writes Rachel Riley for Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board.
OnceThere serves as an aggregate that can pull multiple point of sale systems into the VFTCB’s website. With that integration, the tourism board’s website can provide one-stop-shopping for visitors.
A guest looking to book a weekend trip to Montco might click on valleyforge.org, and once there, can find, select and instantly book in-destination activities, such as online reservations for attractions, tours, and even seasonal hotel packages.
“The obvious benefit is we get more than 800,000 visitors to our website each year, and they now have the opportunity to book their experience directly on valleyforge.org,” said Zach Brown, Digital Content & Analytics Manager. “It saves a step. And, there’s no cost to us, or maintenance required by our members.”
Most attractions’ non-assigned seating online ticket systems are compatible with OnceThere. Even VFTCB members without a point of sale system can opt-in to the program.
Isaac Brooks, Community Relations Manager for the American Treasure tour, said they’re grateful to have such an important tool that’s already improving visitor access and helping to track online sales.
