San Antonio Convention Visitors Bureau reached a significant milestone as the new VisitSanAntonio.com was officially launched to the public as part of the weeklong National Travel and Tourism Week Celebration that occurred last week May 4th – May 12th.
San Antonio is both a national and international destination welcoming 28 million visitors annually. San Antonio is the number one leisure destination in the State helping to position Texas as the 3rd most visited State in the U.S.
Visitors have an annual economic impact of $12 Billion and VisitSanAntonio.com is a powerful tool utilized in marketing San Antonio.
This effort comes as a result of the San Antonio Convention Visitors Bureau partnership with Proof Advertising, who led the overall effort & showcased their skill-set in: Tourism, Digital Media, Web Development, Social Media and Project Management.
Initial reactions by our stakeholders are very positive as San Antonio proves to be at the cutting edge with technology and social media trends. SACVB launched to 100 stakeholders and media last week – some of the feedback included that the new website made stakeholders very proud of how it represented the City, and that they would be using it in their own itinerary planning.
This is a new innovative approach that will continue to place San Antonio in a leadership position amongst leisure and convention destinations.
