When people think of Park City, skiing or Sundance likely comes to mind. While the area rightly deserves praise for its slopes (packed with “the best snow on earth”) and star-studded film festival, the town also offers more than enough action for visitors in the warmer months.Park City’s origins date back to 1868 when soldiers stumbled across silver in the surrounding hills. Over the next 50 years, miners who hoped to strike it rich flocked to the area, turning it into a boomtown. As the mines depleted in the mid-20th century, Park City became a virtual ghost town until a federal loan funded the re-opening of the Park City Mountain Resort in 1963. During the 2002 Olympic Winter Games, Park City played host to many events, earning the area its well-deserved reputation as a top ski destination.

How blockchain is reinventing travel loyalty programs for both brands and consumers

Article | February 28, 2020

According to the latest Bond Brand Loyalty Report, memberships across industries continue to rise and now average 14.8 per person. But - considering total global spend on loyalty programs is estimated to be $323 billion in 2019 – a more critical statistic is: on average people are active in less than half (6.7) of the programs they belong too. More often than not, loyalty programs do not drive loyal behavior. The travel sector has some of the lowest satisfaction rates, according to Bond’s survey of 55,000 consumers in more than 20 markets around the world. Only 37% of hotel loyalty members and 38% of car rental members say they are satisfied with their programs; airlines, meanwhile, fare slightly better at 42%.
