Last week, the Tourism Fernie website received a revamp built with social media in mind.

The new website was designed to work on all devices and caters to the rising need to plan on the go.

“Many consumers want to connect with like-minded people that will share their passion and experiences of a destination. This is especially true of destinations that are very inspiring. Fernie’s spectacular Rocky Mountain landscape, exceptional activities, friendly people and engaging history are all key ingredients that make it a place worth talking about. The new Tourism Fernie website incorporates social media as a way to encourage visitors to join in and participate,” said Jikke Gyorki, Executive Officer for Tourism Fernie in a press release.

Inspiration was also a huge factor in the website design, which features an “Inspire Me” function that generates recommendations of things to do based on the travel type and demographics of the visitor in question.

The site was created in conjunction with Vickery Hill Web Development.

“We are very excited to have launched our new website,” said Gyorki. “The team work that went into making it happen, from our staff to the team at Vickery Hill, was exceptional.”

The website is also expected to change and evolve pending consumer feedback.
