15 Feb Shoe Covers in Tourism
Tourism is a vital and profitable industry in this country. In 2019, the United States saw over one trillion dollars in revenue from the tourism industry. We’ve still seen incredible numbers despite the challenges and disruptions caused by the COVID pandemic. In 2020, the tourism industry accounted for over 545 billion dollars. Experts expect the numbers to rise again in the coming years now that we better understand the virus and its capabilities.
For the tourism industry to remain profitable and contribute to its economy, it must provide value for those experiencing and participating in anything the industry offers. Our favorite way to keep it safe is through the use of shoe covers. Of course, shoe covers won’t be used in every tourist attraction – think Disney World and the Great Smoky Mountains – but they can (and should) be used in indoor facilities, such as museums across the country, the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida, Fanueil Hall in Boston, the French Quarter in New Orleans, the Smithsonian in Washington D.C., and so much more.
Shoe covers help keep environments clean and free from germs and other contaminants. Offering shoe covers to patrons of the most visited sites in the country will aid in keeping them clean and safe, allowing the traditions and experiences to live on for generations. While the most popular (indoor) tourist destinations are always thoroughly cleaned, we can all do our part to help keep them safe and sanitary.
Our three-step shoe cover system is one of the most effective ways to increase the safety and sanitation of these beloved monuments and attractions. First, offering one (or more) of our hands-free dispensers at the front door will help to preserve the beauty of these wonderful places. Our hands-free dispensers can work anywhere, and anyone can use them. Tourists will simply stick their foot into the opening and put on a shoe cover in a back and forth motion. They’ll repeat this with each foot and can then enter their destination without worrying about what they are tracking in. We offer 16 shoe cover styles, providing features necessary for specific venues; whether anti-skip, slip-resistance, or waterproof booties are what you’re looking for, our shoe covers can get the job done. Finally, at the end of the tour or the exit of the building, we’d recommend setting up our hands-free removers. You will remove the shoe covers the same way you put them on. This entire process will help keep the floors and all areas of the venue clean and sanitary.
Our simple three-step system is used in industries across the nation, and we believe that it’s time for it to be used in the most popular destinations. Not only do our shoe covers protect against germs, but they also help customers to feel more comfortable and secure. In addition, our booties provide an extra level of safety by limiting the chances of slipping or falling, eliminating chances of tourists getting hurt or suing the attraction.
