Vancouver-based Loop Insights Inc. is proving to be a major disruptor in an array of industries and their new technology will play a massive role in rebooting the travel industry after we have all spent a year combatting COVID-19, says Lorraine Simpson, a popular travel personality and expert.
The company is making big headlines these days as they have just been selected by bdG Sports to provide its complete venue management platform to the Paiute Las Vegas Championship, a Korn Ferry Tour event, which will be played April 12-18, 2021 at the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort. The Korn Ferry Tour has been the primary pathway for those seeking to earn their PGA Tour card.
Loop’s Wallet Pass is impressive as it creates a direct communication channel with attendees, allowing Loop to send personalized promotions and marketing opportunities directly to users’ mobile phones in partnership with tournament partners including sponsors, brands, merchants, and retailers.
“It all starts with Fobi,” explains Lorraine Simpson, the Cityline TV Travel Expert and Travel Personality. “This is the core of Loop’s services and this technology seamlessly plugs into your business to create connectivity and travel bubbles for everyone.”
“I have always said that technology will be a game-changer for the travel industry and along came Loop Insights – they will be the company that will help get the $1.5 trillion-dollar global tourism industry back up and running again,” adds Simpson.
“Their tech and forward-thinking approach will help travel, tourism and hospitality on so many levels and they will help the world pivot to the new normal with ease and simplicity,” says Simpson.
But the news gets bigger and better for this Canadian company that now has an impressive history of delivering the world’s first-ever venue bubbles in a live environment.
Only a few months ago, the company was selected as the Premier Venue Tracing and Fan Engagement Solution for NCAA College Basketball #VegasBubble in Las Vegas.
Then they implemented the first-ever fully integrated “Venue Bubble” (End-To-End Testing, Contact Tracing, and Alert Notifications) at the #BeachBubble NCAA College Basketball Tournament in Fort Myers, Florida, hosting 14 NCAA Division I men’s and women’s basketball teams.
The company has already announced that it has achieved 100% success in delivering the first-ever fully integrated “Venue Bubble” in live environments at both NCAA College Basketball Tournaments. In total, Loop provided 14 check-in locations that traced over 550 athletes, coaches, and staff members at the two tournaments. Live demonstrations of Loop’s Venue Bubbles led to significant discussions about some of North America’s largest sporting events in 2021, and the company will soon be announcing more events.
Then, as we all celebrated the arrival of 2021, Loop announced that it was selected by bdG Sports to provide its venue management platform to the Big West Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships being held March 9-13, 2021 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.
Following the success of the first-ever venue bubble, Loop Insights has been engaged in discussions with professional sports teams, global hospitality companies, travel groups, airlines, and event hosts in search of a solution to enable the safe resumption of their operations and ensure their long-term viability and sustainability. The success of Loop’s first-ever venue bubble is directly responsible for bdG’s continued interest in deploying Loop’s venue management platform.
Loop Insights and Empower Clinics just announced the combination of their respective Venue Tracing and COVID-19 testing expertise to create the first-ever “Travel Bubble” solution for the global travel industry. Loop and Empower also partnered with SimpliFlying, the world’s leading aviation marketing consulting firm, to support specific near-term opportunities with World Renown resorts, national tourism boards, major airlines, airports, cruise ships, and ports.
Loop Insights also just expanded its venue bubble platform to create a “film bubble,” in partnership with Draganfly’s “Safe Set” solution, for an upcoming major motion picture (“MMP1”) that is soon scheduled to commence filming.
“Loop Insights now operates in the telecom, casino gaming, sports and entertainment, hospitality, and retail industries, in Canada, the US, the UK, Latin America, Australia, Japan, and Indonesia, which is very impressive,” explains Simpson, “and Loop’s products and services are now even backed by Amazon’s Partner Network.”
Rob Anson, Loop Insights CEO, says that since the onset of the pandemic, they have been working with key partners to develop a solution that will allow for a safe reopening of the economy, particularly within the travel and hospitality industry.
“Our customers in the industry are looking to maintain a safe and secure environment to welcome back their guests. Operators dependent on large crowds, including hoteliers hosting business travelers for conferences or other large events, face greater challenges. Although hotels have adapted to follow stringent health and safety measures, continued technological innovation is needed to further reduce occupancy limitations and host large groups again,” he says.
Simpson assures that travel will rebound soon, and new technology will not only help keep people safe, but jobs will return, and we can also look forward to a new economy that will bring much hope for everyone.
Simpson sees this technology highly valuable for one of her clients, www.vacationstogolf.com. The group plans golf trips all over the world and she knows Wallet Pass will be great for their golf events in the very near future.
“COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. Millions of people are out of work and crime and mental health rates have risen to staggering levels, but I have always remained confident that things will get better,” says Simpson.
“With vaccination rollouts happening, rapid testing at airports, and Loop Insights Wallet Pass technology means we are on our way for a better tomorrow,” adds Simpson. “So, when you hear about travel re-opening, you will be sure to thank Loop – they are the ones leading the way in getting our world moving again.”
