Which City Fits Your Travel Style? New Turkish Airlines Destination Quiz Tells You

Turkish Airlines will have a quiz on-hand at Boston’s Outside the Box festival for consumers interested in learning what city fits their travel style. Based on answers to questions such as “What kind of luggage are you” and “What’s the first thing you pack,” results will align travel style with one of nine Turkish Airlines destinations.

“Whether the city that fits your travel style is Istanbul or San Francisco, Turkish Airlines has a flight that can take you there,” said Turkish Airlines. “And what better way to travel to that destination than through Turkish Airlines, which offers one-stop flights from the United States to over 260 worldwide destinations.”

A special giveaway will take place daily at the Turkish Airlines’ experiential booth at the Boston Outside the Box Festival on July 14-19 for those who take the quiz, enter the contest onsite and are present during the drawing. Winners will receive two roundtrip tickets to their “personalized destination.”

GuestDriven, a Guest Engagement Platform provider at the forefront of innovation in travel technology, has been included in the 2015 Cool Vendors in Travel and Hospitality Report published May 28 by Gartner, the world’s leading information technology research and advisory company.

Gartner selected only three travel and hospitality firms for the 2015 publication of this report, which is published annually by Gartner. Included this year along with GuestDriven were Mobile Travel Technologies and RezNext. Gartner reports are objective and subject to strict, proprietary methodologies. As such we believe the significance of being included in a Gartner Research Report is highly validating for a technology firm.

GuestDriven announces their inclusion in the report as the biggest trade show in the travel technology industry approaches – HITEC by HFTP, which will take place this week in Austin TX June 15-18. During HITEC attendees from hotels globally will be able to meet the GuestDriven team and see live demonstrations of the Guest Engagement Platform.

To accompany its in-stay solution Engage, GuestDriven launched its Express pre-stay solution in late 2014. Guests can check-in online and choose exclusive offers and upgrades prior to arrival, which is a strong window for conversions. CEO Anthony Zebrowski-Rubin says Express has been received exceptionally well by the market.

“The full GuestDriven platform allows hotels to really know their guests in advance in order to offer a more personalized service. Mobile plays a huge part in crafting a frictionless experience so the in-stay solution puts real-time guest engagement at the hotel’s fingertips. Guests can order room service, request a valet, purchase a late check-out, communicate 1:1 with the front desk and more.”
