Simpleview Site Promotes the Essence of Essex

Categories: Our News

Simpleview’s new go-to-guide for exploring the county of Essex has been launched.

The Visit Essex site, sets out to raise awareness of what Essex has to offer, increase the number of visitors (once the national restrictions have been lifted) and boost income for both the DMO and its tourism businesses.

A combination of a more contemporary design, intuitive browsing experience and improved functionality sets out to meet the needs of today's visitors and provides the opportunity for people to book in advance to ensure that Covid-19 pre-booking procedures are met. 

The site will be used to promote Visit Essex members’ establishments and campaigns to encourage people to visit the county as a destination of choice, as well as inspire visitors to explore the hidden gems of the county - such as Constable Country and the Sunshine Coast. Members also have access to a new improved Extranet which is more intuitive and facilitates more control. 

With Simpleview’s ever-popular itinerary builder, visitors can now choose from a range of accommodation, activities and attractions either for a short break or for a longer holiday.  The new site also provides ideas and inspiration for day trips, a video showcasing Essex’s venues, competitions, fascinating facts about the history and heritage of the county and much more.

The ‘Essex Bucket List’ encourages both residents of the county and visitors to try 20 different activities, including white water rafting, mountain biking, seal watching, visits to cultural, historic and heritage venues and taking a trip to Mersea to sample the island's famous oysters and many more.

Lisa Bone, Visit Essex Strategic Manager, comments: "We are obviously delighted with the new website as it is more design-led and will provide a more intuitive, user-friendly experience for everyone. 

Despite the current situation, we want to promote Essex to local residents and visitors throughout the country due to the abundance of unique attractions and delightful destinations that are prevalent throughout the county. 

Essex will be open for business in the coming months and we would encourage people to visit our new website for all the latest information, as well as ideas of where to visit post-lockdown, and to book accommodation in advance."
