Visitors Bureau mobile Website wins award

The Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau was honored with the Silver Award for the 2013 Davey Awards for its mobile Website in the travel category.

Simpleview Inc., HCCVB’s marketing partner for interactive and web services, chose the bureau’s mobile site earlier this year as one of its “best of the best” and selected it for the nomination. The site offers streamlined content, simple straightforward navigation, and simple clicks to call or access social media channels.

“It’s gratifying to see the Hamilton County CVB’s hard work to showcase their amazing destination interactively acknowledged through this award,” stated Simpleview Vice President Greg Evans. “Hamilton County CVB is an example of a DMO that is pushing the envelope while maintaining best practices, and this award helps highlight their efforts and achievements.”

The Davey Awards are based on their strength from big ideas – rather than stratospheric budgets – and are judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body from firms such as Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Microsoft, Monster.com and others.

HCCVB promotes tourism growth through strategic marketing, hospitality and community development initiatives. It has welcome centers in Carmel, Fishers and Noblesville.
