June 18, 2007, REDLANDS, CA – The California Welcome Center in San Bernardino is impacting the very competitive tourism market. RedFusion Media’s partnership with the Center makes getting information easy. Now, visitors to the area can easily access information online through the custom-built, Internet-powered kiosk.
RedFusion Media, a local web design and Internet marketing company located in Redlands, built the kiosk for the center, which includes multiple computers and a print station, giving CWC visitors access to Inland Empire attractions, hotels, restaurants, and recreational opportunities. Content is also shared with the center from the InlandEmpire.US local directory, which is owned and maintained by RedFusion Media. This use of technology represents a growing trend using the Internet to deliver digital “rich” media to screens anywhere.
“Internet Marketing includes placing media in kiosks, on billboards, and smaller street and in store displays. These displays can be easily changed from a remote location. RedFusion Media is able to control and update the Welcome Center kiosk in San Bernardino from our offices in Redlands. This is a very effective way to manage advertising messages,” says Jon Burgess, Internet Manager at RedFusion Media.
According to statewide surveys, provided by Certified Folder Display Service, Inc., a welcome center near a major California highway has potential to regionally draw 100,000 domestic and international visitors annually. Studies also indicate that 66 percent of travelers visit a welcome center after identifying the state’s traveling bear logo on Interstate signage. The California Welcome Center is centrally located on 1955 Hunts Lane, just north of the I-10/215 freeway interchange near Hospitality Lane. Welcome Center visitors will find that it is easy to navigate the information kiosk, so they can better explore the Inland Empire area and all its amenities, and print any information they need for their travels.
RedFusion Media is delighted to partner with the Welcome Center to provide the Internet technology and content for this terrific project, states Ron Burgess, president. We strongly support all efforts to communicate the region’s assets to California and the region.
