Visit Vacaville in California has been awarded the Gold Adrian Award for Website Design from the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International. After a huge rebranding project in 2015, they partnered with Tempest Interactive Media to create a new digital marketing platform.

"We are thrilled to be acknowledged with this fantastic honor," says Melyssa Laughlin, CEO, Visit Vacaville. "Our digital media manager Janette Maack has worked tirelessly on the new site over the last year, and our collaboration with Tempest has been an amazing process. We are excited to be able to offer such a wonderfully immersive website experience to all of our visitors."

The website features large-format photography, imagery and artwork that portray the wine country experience. They share content on several social media platforms, including Instagram and Facebook to reach a broader audience. Additionally, they have an interactive event calendar to keep visitors up to date with events occurring in the area.

Visit Vacaville hopes their new branding and updated website will reach beyond their core demographic.

The new concept restaurant designed by Howe & Brown Hospitality has maritime inspired food and craft cocktails that will prove to be a delight for travelers and locals. Using locally-sourced ingredients, the cuisine emphasizes technique and texture to highlight the exuberance of in-season seafood. 

 

Known as “The World’s Most Famous Building,” the Empire State Building, which welcomes more than 4 million visitors per year, has been going through some changes. One of those changes is the preparation of NYC: Above and Beyond, an interactive exhibit dedicated to global tourists in New York City. Set to be located on the 80th floor of the famous building, the exhibit will offer personalized travel recommendations to visitors.

 

Despite being open for only 15 months, Somni is awarded two Michelin stars. Led by Chef Aitor Zabala with Chef José Andrés, the SLS Beverly Hills restaurant celebrates the honor as well as the Michelin Guide’s return to Los Angeles after a decade.
