(PRWEB UK) 23 January 2013
Leading supplier of e-tourism technology, New Mind has been selected to develop a world class tourism website covering the Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site.
Hadrian's Wall is internationally renowned. However, the vision for the new website is to not only promote the Roman sites but to also raise awareness of the other places to see and things to do within the Hadrian's Wall corridor.
The new site will fulfil a number of key objectives for the Hadrian's Wall Trust. It will be visually inspiring, representing the status of this iconic attraction whilst aiding visitors from around the globe with their holiday planning and booking needs. It will seek to educate visitors, not only in terms of the history of Hadrians Wall but also its conservation for future generations. Information on all of the experiences on offer will be available to encourage longer stays, generating a resulting increase in visitor spend. The new website will be a dynamic shop window and a cost-effective route to market for local businesses.
Andrew Marchbank of the Hadrian's Wall Trust comments "New Mind was selected because of their track record in producing world class visitor websites. They demonstrated a complete understanding and knowledge of our business needs in presenting the Hadrian's Wall World Heritage Site in a way that strengthens community pride and delivers a significant contribution to our local and regional visitor economies."
The site will be launched in early 2013.
