15th September 2016
Categories: Our News
New Mind | tellUs continues its success in Devon with a major contract win for the development of the new county-wide destination site and e-tourism solution for Visit Devon.
Devon is one of the UK's favourite tourism destinations, boasting wild moors, an outstanding dramatic coastline including golden sandy beaches, a famous food culture, thriving arts scene and a great choice of accommodation. In 2015 the destination attracted over 5.75m visitors including 460k overseas visitors.
The new fully integrated solution will support Devon's leisure and business tourism development, positioning the county as an expansive and diverse destination. The site will be fully responsive and visually engaging, combining a thematic and 'destinational' approach to both search and presentation of content and products for tourists, pre-visit and in-destination.
The county's businesses will have access to a whole range of promotional tools, with varying levels of entry, banner ads and opportunities to showcase their products, all with built in performance tracking capability. Ease of management for the administration of the varying packages is also a pre-requisite for the new solution.
New Mind | tellUs is already working with the Devon destinations of English Riviera, Dartmoor, Plymouth, Dartmouth, South Devon and Exeter. The company's selection for this latest project was based on their ability to deliver the new solution in time for the busy Autumn season, together with their proven track record in helping tourism destinations to achieve their dual goals of promotion and income generation.
Matt Bassett of New Mind | tellUs comments: "Visit Devon requires a new website that is inspirational and informative for the visitor, but also easy to use and generates income for the DMO. These are the strengths of the New Mind | tellUs platform and therefore we are delighted that Visit Devon has chosen us to deliver their website. As one of the most popular destinations in the UK, Devon has so much to offer visitors with its vast range of activities, attractions, events, accommodation and delicious food and drink. These are exciting times for the county and we are very pleased to be part of the team!"
Simon Fishwick of Visit Devon comments: "The new site is the first development of the new Visit Devon CIC that has been set up with the key aim of raising the profile of Devon as a holiday destination for both the domestic and international visitor market. This development will make it easier for potential visitors to gain information about Devon as a whole and to book their holidays online.
We are delighted to be working with New Mind | tellUs who were chosen because of their expertise in this sector and their ability to deliver the project within a very tight timeframe. We are looking forward to the new site going live in the next few weeks in time for the Autumn season and building on the success of the current site which has had in excess of 1 million visits this year."
