Mood Media Launches MVision Travel - New Digital Signage Solution Featuring TripAdvisor Content for the Hospitality Industry
TORONTO, June 20, 2013 /CNW/ - Mood Media continues to enhance its digital signage content offering through a new partnership with TripAdvisor®. The agreement allows for special access to content from the world's largest travel website that is configured within Mood's digital signage platforms, creating a unique digital signage solution designed especially for hotels and other hospitality venues.
