MONTREAL, April 11 2017 /CNW Telbec/ - Montreal startup Soul.City Group Inc. announces the launch of Cityzen, a community of world travellers who want to experience city discovery in a completely different way! Starting with the realization that guide books do not take into account the notion of "How I feel right now", the Soul.City app allows visitors and locals alike to discover cities through their feelings. Free walking itineraries of 2, 4, or 6 hours may be selected from a suggested list of moods. Since its launch in February 2016, the application has attracted thousands of users on both sides of the Atlantic.
Now expanding into 10 new cities worldwide, Cityzen is a community created to regroup people who like to travel and want to contribute to the Soul.City ecosystem.
"We are disrupting the tourism industry by offering a new way of discovering a city to over 168 million people who use a smartphone while traveling. Cityzen asks our users to let us know what they love in their own cities", says CEO Annick Charbonneau.
Cityzen is open to anyone who loves to travel and would like to submit urban discovery itineraries in their favourite cities. Bloggers, greeters and tour guides who wish to prolong their experience digitally are welcome to the community! Cityzen already boasts amongst its members famous bloggers and well known influencers. The community is also open to hoteliers and brands who wish to offer content to their own users.
"Essentially, we are creating a marketplace where travel aficionados can create content for big brands and be paid for it. We are growing fast and aim to be in 100 cities by 2020", explains CEO Annick Charbonneau.
The Cityzen community is now open to all at http://cityzen.soul.city
