Danny Tumblin is the Account Executive at Wander, where his role in building partner relations includes meeting with destinations, discussing their marketing plans, introducing the Wander platform, and discussing Wander as the right fit. It's his job to learn and stay educated about what pain points the tourism professionals are experiencing and make sure Wander is prepared to help!
Wander is in the business of storytelling. "We help destinations showcase the best they have to offer through a 'picture worth a million words': a map," said Danny. "Maps have been the trusty companions of travelers for thousands of years. The best maps were not simply used to navigate, they were used to explore. Accompanying the arrival of the digital age came incredible navigational mapping tools."
With Wander arrives the first exploration-focused mapping tool. Wander helps destinations create beautiful, white-labeled, interactive maps that can be embedded into websites or taken on the go with mobile versions. They work to improve marking, visitor experience, and sustainability, helping not only visitors but also locals feel more connected and engaged with their community.
Danny describes himself as "addicted" to the outdoors. "I love to ski, bike, run, climb, camp, hike...I think you get the idea," he said. He also has a trusty outdoor buddy in his dog Trek, whom he enjoys taking with him on his adventures. He also really enjoys reading and will never turn down the chance to check out a new restaurant. Nothing makes him happier than sharing an incredible experience with friends or family.
When thinking of travel, Danny shares a meaningful quote:
Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime. - Mark Twain
"Those who build and sustain our tourism industry are those who are fighting to hold our world together," said Danny. "At Wander, we are passionate about doing our part to support the creative thinkers, unsung local heroes, and leaders that hold our communities together. New York is home to one of the most innovative and powerful groups of tourism professionals in the world."
"As a new member of NYSTIA, Wander is excited to be part of such a powerhouse team of tourism professionals," said Danny. "New York as a state is one of the leaders in worldwide tourism recognition. We look forward to learning from and contributing to communities of all sizes and demographics. We love creating a more seamless tourist experience between rural and urban areas and New York is full of these opportunities!"
