Santa Barbara Conference & Visitors Bureau Launches New Mobile Website

Interactive tools can help locals and visitors navigate restaurants, events and more

The Santa Barbara Conference & Visitors Bureau and Film Commission is offering visitors and locals alike a new Santa Barbara mobile experience with a recently revamped mobile website. Click here to view it on a mobile device.

With this enhanced mobile website, the SBCVB&FC is looking to further inspire interest in Santa Barbara and deliver a more useful, relevant and interactive tool for pre-planning or while visiting The American Riviera.

The new mobile website not only offers improved design, both visually and interactively, but now also provides a variety of practical tools to assist users pre, during and post visit. Accommodations listings make it exceedingly simple to view and book hotels. Location detection delivers real-time information directly to the mobile device and helps navigate experiences, attractions, restaurants and more, while the events calendar keeps users informed of local happenings.

The mobile website features a dedicated page to cultural tourism with Culture 101, highlighting activities based on cultural interest. Photo and video galleries will inspire adventurous ideas, while social connections make it possible to share, in real time, memories from your own trip! Furthermore, touch navigation, click to call options, and map function make for ease of use while on the go.

The enhancements to the mobile website are not only beneficial for consumers, but also for those in the tourism industry. The mobile website’s social connections drive engagement pre, during and post visit, while the category listings with expanded functionality will encourage referrals to hospitality businesses. Additionally, the new website offers mobile advertising opportunities.

With the launch of their new mobile website, the Santa Barbara Conference & Visitors Bureau and Film Commission is enhancing the Santa Barbara tourism experience and making it more accessible for all.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
