VisitCornwall relaunches website


Relaunched VisitCornwall website, the official tourism website for Cornwall, has been restyled and revamped with a fresh new look, revised navigation and improved functionality.

Visitors to the new site will discover improved searches, interactive mapping, enhanced listings and inspiring information as well as user generated content and an invitation to share their favourite video clips and images of the county.

VisitCornwall web manager, Nicky Miller, commented: “In 2008 the VisitCornwall website had over one million visits, in 2009 we reached that milestone by the end of August and are set to be at least 35% up on traffic by the end of the year.

“The website serves as a phenomenal marketing tool. For thousands of potential visitors it provides the first image of Cornwall and so getting the design, content and functionality right is vitally important.

“We hope the new site will further inspire prospective visitors to the county and do more to convert initial interest to confirmed bookings for our members.”

Hayle based design consultancy, Nixon, was responsible for the style transformation while New Mind, the largest supplier of destination websites in the UK, built the site and provided the content management system.
