Press release, photo submitted:
After several months of planning and design, the Wyoming County Chamber & Tourism launched its newly redesigned website today. The website is now fully responsive and mobile friendly, secure and easy to navigate, says Chamber President Scott Gardner.
Residents and consumers will be able to easily access the Chamber’s member directory, the latest news and events, access information and resources on economic development, and stay connected with the business community.
The site will also feature upcoming chamber-specific programs and events like Wyoming County Agri-palooza. Members will be able to easily navigate to benefits and access a special login section that allows them to change their own micro-listing Web pages. These and more a just a few of the many improvements to the website.
“This is the first time the site has been changed in almost 14 years. In this high-tech world, no one can afford to get behind the technology curve,” Gardner said. “The new website offers better access to information and improved connection and resources for both our membership and the community.”
The website upgrade project was part of a two-phase approach to recasting the two websites, in phase one, the tourism site – www.gowyomingcountyny.com – was completely redesigned from the ground up. The second phase of updating the Chamber site was built on the technical foundation of tourism but given its own look and feel. This allowed the two sites to have a similar and complementary looks while maintaining their necessary differences. The user-friendly responsive design breathes life into the mobile presence for the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce & Tourism. Additionally, the administrative features and functionality of the new websites provide the organization with the ability to offer alternative online advertising opportunities to its members.
“On behalf of the Board of Directors I would like to thank the staff for their work and chamber member Corporate Communications for developing the new website,” said Board Chair Norb Fuest. “We look forward to continuing to serve the membership and community through this new website, both as a tool and great source of information and resources.”
The website will also feature information on the county’s Rural Arts Initiative. This resource for travelers, residents, and artists, provides project updates and developments to the arts and cultural offerings in the county. Links will allow users to learn more and get direct access to organizations like the Arts Council for Wyoming County and new galleries.
