Today Adam Stoker sits down with Jason Linder, the CEO of Ripe, a company formerly known as RootRez. As a travel and technology company based in Salt Lake City, Utah, RootRez has been helping destination, event, and travel-related websites best connect travelers to lodging partners since 2015. Jason explains how their services can benefit DMOs and offers valuable insights into the importance of having a local focus in the travel industry. Jason shares his experience of rebranding RootRez to Ripe with Relic Agency, discussing the challenges and benefits of completely rebranding a company right down to the name, and when a company should consider doing so. For those who may be considering a rebranding process, Jason offers some practical suggestions on how to approach the process. Finally, the discussion turns to the future of the tourism industry, and Jason shares his thoughts on how artificial intelligence is shaping the industry. He highlights the importance of understanding AI and its potential impact on the travel industry, and how DMOs can stay ahead of the curve in this rapidly changing landscape.

"With Ripe, we can help [DMOs] better serve those visitors at that opportune moment when they're ready to research and book and help [DMOs] realize the value of their effort that they bring in the lodging category."
- Jason Linder
