“The addition of Factual’s Global Places data to complement TripAdvisor’s current offering will provide consumers the best experience and enormous choices for dining worldwide,” said Eva Ho, Factual’s VP of Marketing and Operations. “The stream of contributions provided by TripAdvisor’s users will reinforce Factual’s Global Places position as the leading source for definitive global data on places.”

Both partners share a global approach in their business, mixing the 30 countries where TripAdvisor operates with Global Places’ coverage of 50 countries being quite enticing for travelers looking to plan their trip by reviewing online resources. As a result, travelers will be offered over one million restaurants to explore and later review.
