Create something special, but keep it simple

Newsletter October 2015

Guide ID has been busy the past 6 months! A great number of new international customers have been welcomed to the platform including Guildhall, The Pendon Museum and The National Maritime Museum Greenwich in the UK and in Belgium, the Gallo-Roman Museum. In Germany we have welcomed the Focke Museum.

For the beer-lovers De Koninck Experience has just opened in Antwerp. In a variety of rooms with a mixture of themes visitors are informed about Antwerp as a beer city, Belgian beers and the complete brewing process. Many interactive tools and audio visual special effects create a 360° total experience. You can read more about this project further on in the newsletter.

I am extremely thankful to our clients for the confidence they have in Guide ID and hope that we can continue to have such a good relationship with them. We hope to meet and speak to you soon during the MA conference and exhibition on the 4th and 5th November in Birmingham or during one of the many walk-ins we have planned in London.

June 2015, New Church Amsterdam:
Dear people,
What a wonderful service this is! Listening at home, while relaxing, at the (missed) stories that we heard at the “History and Royalty” exhibition. I would recommend that all interesting exhibitions should participate and get this service (MapMyVisit red.)
Please continue with this! Have a good evening!

Coincidentally, I ended up in this museum when I walked through Amsterdam. You have no idea how much history and beauty your will find behind this facade. Nice to see the hidden church in such a good condition.The audio tour will bring you along all kinds of painting and objects that reveal the background of this beautiful museum.

Zaans Museum, Zaandam
“Fabulous!”

This is a fun, entertaining and informative museum! Definitely worth a couple of hours during your day at Zaans Schaans. My kids loved the audio tour and being able to see all the products of this region of Holland.

Sehen ist glauben

Sehen Sie die Plattform im Einsatz

Ein Podcatcher-Walk-in ist die perfekte Gelegenheit, die Plattform aus der eigenen Perspektive und aus der des Besuchers zu erleben. Ein Walk-in verläuft in informellem Rahmen. Der Gedanke, der dahinter steckt: Ihre Kollegen und Sie nehmen eine Führung in Anspruch, als wären Sie Besucher, anschließend treffen Sie sich mit einem unserer Vertriebsleiter und unterhalten sich bei einem Kaffee über das Erlebte. Gleichzeitig haben Sie die Möglichkeit, detaillierte Informationen zu erhalten und Fragen zu stellen.
