The team here at Syracuse Design is proud to announce that in the coming weeks, we will be launching a brand new website for the Cayuga County Conventions & Visitors Bureau! The site is set to launch in mid-March, and is the product of many hours of planning, collaboration, design, development, sweat, and elbow-grease.
TourCayuga.com took over four months to complete, with a significant amount that time spent in the early planning and design phase. Syracuse Design is the only web firm on this project, and is responsible for all design and development. This is our newest baby. We worked closely with Meg and the team in Auburn to deliver exactly what they needed to achieve their marketing goals. After several trips to Cayuga County, we were able to nail down the specifics of the project, and then build wireframes, data models, and initial design specs to fit their needs.
The new website features rich business listings for people living in, traveling to, curious about Cayuga County. Are you planning a romantic getaway for two? The wine trail, bed & breakfast, and spa listings will certainly be of interest to you. Being a off-the-beaten-path destination, Cayuga County is trying to build their conventions and meeting business. The website has rich tools for finding the appropriate venue for any gathering, as well as group-friendly hotels, restaurants, attractions, and the like.
The glue that holds all of the individual listings together is the Trip Planner. As visitors are browsing listings, they can add their favorite destinations to the Trip Planner. The Planner will then show all of their destinations, in order, with directions between them all. Want to go to lunch after a morning wine trail? No problem, drag that listing up one slot, and the map and directions automatically reset to show you the new route. Are you driving in from Syracuse? The Trip Planner allows you to add your home address to the mix, so you can get to Cayuga with ease.
