Over the summer, Tampa Bay has attracted a lot of public attention. The city was the host to the recent Republican National Convention and the hometown Buccaneers kicked off their season a couple weeks ago, bringing in hundreds of thousands of event attendees and millions of outside viewers.

To help market the city and region to these travelers, Tampa Bay & Company - the official destination marketing organization for the Tampa area - decided to update their website.

Tampa 2012 Update Before After

With help from our team, a fresh look was applied to emphasize photography of the area's attractions and events. This included removing all Flash-based elements to help provide a better experience for smartphone and tablet users. There are other mobile-friendly elements, including a scalable slideshow on the home page.

Additionally, the site redesign emphasizes the DMO's social accounts by bringing a social hub to the home page. This allows visitors to see the organization's Facebook posts, tweets, Flickr feed, YouTube videos and other content without having to do any extensive searching.
