9 August 2012

PathWrangler is excited to announce that we’ve been selected as a Finalist for the PhoCusWright Travel Innovation Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona on November 13, 2012:

The Travel Innovation Summit@The PhoCusWright Conference shines the spotlight on the new applications and ideas that change the industry.

Thirty global innovators demonstrate applications, technologies and solutions with the potential to transform travel planning, purchasing and memorializing.

Travel Innovation Summit attendees come prepared to find the next market-changing innovations, seeking fresh ideas, new partners and investment opportunities. Attendees have open access to the innovators and are encouraged to connect and provide feedback throughout the event.

A World Class Event
PhoCusWright’s experienced analyst team carefully screens each candidate to find the best and eliminate the hype. There are no “speakers” or “presenters” at The Travel Innovation Summit. The innovators demonstrate their products through live walkthroughs of their technologies and tools, creating an immersive experience for the audience. The demonstrator package provides innovators with more than just marketing and promotion, they get business development opportunities, on-site meetings and critics’ feedback and a chance to wow the audience during Center [email protected] PhoCusWright Conference later in the week. Award winners vie to return home with The DEMO Award for the Most Game-Changing Innovation. Startup, emerging and established companies (including last year’s demonstrators!) are invited to apply based purely on their innovative accomplishments, regardless of organizational size, age, sector or location.

We are absolutely thrilled and excited to demonstrate our technology in front of some of world’s top travel thought leaders.  In building PathWrangler, we didn’t just set out to make a cool app; we aim to upset and change the adventure travel and outdoor experience.

What do we do?

Simply put, PathWrangler makes building and storing experiences easier than ever before.

Let’s face it, planning an adventure trip or an outdoor excursion is like herding cats. It is maddening to get everyone and everything prepared. We’ve built a collaborative web tool that makes trip planning not only easy, but fun. The goal is empower you so that your only limitation is your imagination and sense of wonder. It is used just as easily by professional guides running recurring expeditions to the Himalayas to just a handful of avid outdoor enthusiasts planning their next hiking trip in Yosemite.

We take the conversation that normally occurs over emails, spreadsheets, PDFs, Word Docs, etc and puts it into a central place where your team/group interacts with each other from a single version of the truth. It is interactive, dynamic and a way to get everyone involved. After your trip, all that hard work turns into a wonderful trip report that stores those memories.

Tell us what you think before then.  Go in and check us out for yourself by signing up for a free account.  With your help, we’ll see if we have what it takes to hang with some of the world’s best.
