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.

On September 1, over 1,500 businesses across the country illuminated their buildings with red lights to draw attention to the devastation that the live events and performance art industries have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

According to a survey commissioned by the American Hotel & Lodging Association (AHLA), frequent travelers feel safer when hotels adhere to AHLA's Stay Safe guidelines, which detail cleaning protocols for hotels during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

 

Through responses to bi-weekly surveys, Global Business Travel Association members have indicated that domestic busines travel is ramping up after months of struggle.
