NextTrip.Com Signs With GeoBeats for Industry-Leading Travel Video Content
GeoBeats, Inc., the industry-leader in online video production and distribution solutions for media, travel and education companies, announced today it has signed an agreement with NextTrip.com for licensed travel videos that will be featured on NextTrip.com, a cutting-edge video and social community travel site.
As a part of this private label agreement, NextTrip.com will receive 30 two- to three-minute videos per month. The videos will provide the site's travel audience with insightful glimpses of unique attractions and helpful tips to aid in their travel-planning decisions."The first place consumers go to research and plan a trip is the Internet," said Brad Heureux, president of NextTrip, Inc. "Online travel communities and booking sites that offer rich media content capturing the essence of destinations are the sites that bring real value to visitors. We're thrilled with the exceptional high-quality and consistency of GeoBeats' video content and we're excited that our visitors will be able to virtually experience destinations all around the world."
"We're very pleased that NextTrip.com has joined our growing list of partners," said Ashish Khurana, chief executive officer at GeoBeats. "Unlike other video content providers, GeoBeats' videos are filmed and hosted by locals who are knowledgeable about the destination and can give travelers the insights and information needed to plan the perfect trip. As a result, our videos are highly desired by travelers and advertisers."
The first videos to be featured on NextTrip.com's site include a vignette on the famous lookout point in Florence, Italy, Piazzale Michelangelo, and a look at Berlin's nightlife.
