A new year is once again at our door, and this time it brings new and exciting Soundwalks to explore. From Jack the Ripper stories in the city of London, to Gladiators legends in the colisseum in Rome, the Panthenon in Athens, listening to our story of the fall of the Berlin wall, the Amsterdam of Van Gogh, or Barcelona through the eyes of Dali, soundwalkrs content promises to amaze travelers in many destinations in 2019.
But as we finish the year, it is time to celebrate our accomplishments and thank those who have made this possible, and for the Soundwalkrs growing family, 2018 has been a year filled with accomplishments, from early in the year being top 10 Future of Travel Startups in Miamilab, to winning the Tourism Innovation Challenge of IE and Ministry of Commerce of Colombia, winning the Agora Next Telefonica Open Future Travel tech challenge in Palma de Mallorca and being part of the top ten most disruptive travel tech start ups of the Amercias for the UNWTO in Buenos Aires earlier this month; but above all, the best award we could ever win is the acceptance and reaction of the market.
Our mission is to transform the travel industry one walk at a time, and we have been doing this by winning over the hearts of the travelers that take a soundwalk in their traveling journey, listening and using their imagination to travel in time as they walk around our destinations.
Today, Our Content Power House moves to a model that will bring Soundwalks faster to the travel market through our B2B partnerships . Our team is devoted to its objectives so that next year you will be able to get your code and have your Soundwalk experience by making your reservation through our partners Booking sites.
Our platform is ready to amaze travelers and promises a unique immersive audiowalk experience starting with 20 destinations early this year, and finishing next year with 50 top worldwide destinations.
However, none of this would have been possible without an amazing team behind it all , and , as the end of the year arrives I want to take this opportunity to introduce to all of you the creative minds behind the scenes that work everyday to make this happen.
