Going Where Others Have Gone Before

Among the many great wonders of the internet is the ability to share information more quickly and freely.  Admittedly, sometimes that freedom can lead to content of dubious value posted by those enjoying the anonymity afforded by technology.  However, savvy consumers of information can quickly glean useful tidbits from the posts of others when researching things to do, places to eat, etc.

Understanding this, the Durham Convention & Visitors Bureau’s newly redesigned website has an exciting new feature.  As site users pull up information about specific places, user reviews from the popular consumer review site,, will also populate on the page giving the site user additional information with which  to make decisions. “This addition is another great leap forward in our quest to fully equip visitors to Durham with all the information available to get the most out of their visit,” said Shelly Green, DCVB’s President and CEO.

Of course, the Visitor’s Information Center is still staffed during normal business hours and Saturday from 10AM to 2PM  where visitors can get information directly, as well as through the site’s enhanced Live Chat function - because sometimes, there’s just no substitute for another live human being.
