The Douglasville Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) is excited to announce the launch of its new website, www.visitdouglasville.com.
If you have ever been curious about what all Douglasville has to offer, wondered about the new Douglasville Conference Center, or even searched for entertainment options in our city, visitdouglasville.com is a great resource to discover Douglasville. Here you can find many features that will help to enhance your experience. From interactive modules, fresh content, to user-friendly navigation, the new website’s all-access concept makes it easier for you to find what you are looking for.
“For the past several months, a lot of changes have been happening at the Douglasville CVB. Last month we introduced the new Visit Douglasville mobile app, and in addition to our new logo, the new website reflects a fresh look for the CVB,” said Douglasville Tourism Director Randi Miles.
The dramatically redesigned site was created by CivicPlus through the direction and creative guidance of the Douglasville CVB team. The site’s homepage welcomes visitors with bold new colors, innovative features and functionality.
“Simplicity is the key to website usability, messaging and navigation. Coupled with an eye-catching design and informative content—you’ve got the perfect combination for a great website. These components were part of our overall goal for the new website. Visitdouglasville.com now offers more user-friendly features with simple navigation to help find information quicker and easier,” said Kizzy Howell, Advertising and Promotions Manager for the City of Douglasville.
Aside from an updated look, the new website features a powerful new way to engage and interact with customers through the site’s Community Voice module, an open forum that allows visitors to provide input on general topics including CVB projects and activities. The module encourages visitor idea submission, engaging discussions and voting by awarding badges to contributors based on their activity level.
The homepage highlights content, such as the new Visit Douglasville mobile app and the latest news and events, as well as a “Discover Douglasville” promotional video. As an extra flair, graphic buttons were created to appear on each page to emphasize special interest items for easier navigation. Left hand links that appear throughout the website also add to the sites simple navigation. These links direct the user to other pages within the site for one-click access, rather than searching through the main navigation dropdowns.
Visitdouglasville.com provides visitors with information on places to stay, things to do, foods to savor, the conference center and about Douglasville. Within the website, users can find resources to plan family reunions and weddings, in addition to information about Douglasville hotels, news, restaurants, entertainment, and more.
Discover the Douglasville Conference Center, just minutes away from the area’s top attractions and a quick access to downtown Atlanta and the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport. The Conference Center tab on the website highlights the 37,000-square-foot facility including its amenities and rates, as well as its exclusive on-site catering service Carole Parks Catering. Additionally, visitors are now able to search and view profiles from other event facilities in the area.
