TUCSON, Ariz. (February 2009) — Simpleview has made room in the display case for their newest award--a HSMAI Silver Adrian Award--which they won for designing and implementing the Visit Jacksonville website found at www.visitjacksonville.com.

The Adrian Awards Competition is widely considered the largest and most prestigious travel marketing competition globally, and Simpleview representatives picked up the award at HSMAI’s January 26th gala in New York City. Specializing in creating best-of-breed technology solutions and interactive marketing services for the DMO and CVB marketplace (DMOs and CVBs are official destination marketing organizations who represent the travel and tourism interests of cities, counties, regions and states), Simpleview believes the award is representative of the quality of work and commitment to customer service that they pride themselves on.

“We are extremely proud to win this award, but we are even happier that the product that this award was won for has translated into great success for our client,” said Simpleview President Rich Reasons.

A website that is not only visually striking, but functional, visitjacksonville.com features applications and tools valuable to visitors, meeting planners, travel professionals and the media. From video, photo tours and blogs to suggested itineraries, destination highlights and a calendar of events, the website blends Web 2.0 elements with comprehensive information that Visit Jacksonville provides to a variety of audiences.

“The HSMAI Adrian Awards are a great honor and deemed one of the best recognitions within our industry,” said John Reyes, Visit Jacksonville president & CEO. “Our team has worked hard this past year to create innovative initiatives and overhaul our Web site to increase awareness and visitor demand of Jacksonville as a leisure and business destination.”
