The Owensboro Convention Center has rolled out a new website and app that were both designed to be more user-friendly and offer an interactive experience for its visitors. The website was created by Red Pixel Studios, a local web design firm. “We wanted to improve our website and give people a tool that is highly functional, whether you want to know about events taking place, or plan your own event. It was also very important that we use our local resources and work with an Owensboro-based company,” stated Madison Strobel, Marketing & PR Manager for Global Spectrum at the Owensboro Convention Center.
In addition to the website, Red Pixel also designed an app that compliments the new website. “My favorite part of the app is the ability to look at our calendar and automatically add that event to my own personal calendar with the touch of a button,” stated Laura Alexander, Director of Sales & Marketing for Global Spectrum. “We hope that this will help increase attendance.”
The new website also includes QuickQuote, a website feature that allows a customer to get a quick estimate on their upcoming meeting or wedding. The user provides a few details about their event and also any additional services that they may want to get an automatic quote. Then the user can review the estimate and request that a sales manager contact them regarding the event. “With people wanting information easier and faster, the new app and QuickQuote are the perfect tools to make it easier to plan events and market those events to the public,” stated Alexander.
To visit the website, go to www.owensborocenter.com to view all of the exciting new changes. The app can be downloaded through the iTunes App Store and Google Play.
