Southern Delaware Tourism today unveiled its new website in preparation for the busy summer season.
"We're really excited about the new site," said Executive Director Scott Thomas. "Our website had become outdated and needed to be far more visually impactful, more intuitive to navigate, and more user friendly. Our calendar of eventsneeded to be more manageable and responsive as well. This new site achieves all of that and more."
The updated look and interface is designed to better accommodate visitors as well as tour guides, meeting planners, travel media and locals.
D3 Digital Marketing Agency, headquartered in Ocean City, MD, undertook the design.
"This site is a perfect example of responsive and resourceful web design," said John Gehrig, D3 president. "It allows for visual navigation which creates a much more efficient user experience. We're thrilled to partner with Southern Delaware Tourism in creating the digital presence they need to promote Sussex County."
