Chair of the Conejo Valley Tourism Improvement District, Steven Tarn, General Manager of the Hampton Inn Thousand Oaks, has announced that Conejo Valley Tourism has earned a silver award from the Sacramento Ad Club for its website Conejo.com. The award was earned in the Digital Advertising/Website/Services category.
Annually, the ADDY awards recognize the best in advertising in local chapters of the American Advertising Federation. The local Ad Club phase is the first of a three-step national competition. With a silver medal, Conejo.com is qualified to move into the second tier where local ADDY winners will compete against winners from other local clubs in district competitions. District ADDY winners then have the chance to move into the national stage for the American Advertising Awards.
The Conejo Valley Tourism Improvement District was formed in August, 2013 to increase occupancy in our local hotels and awareness of the many amenities available in the Conejo Valley for guests to consider when making travel plans. Following an extensive RFP process, Conejo Valley Tourism hired AugustineIdeas, a full service advertising agency with extensive experience in destination marketing. AugustineIdeas, based in Roseville, CA with a satellite office in Century City developed and designed the award-winning website for the Conejo Valley Tourism Improvement District. The site features a booking widget to help travelers reserve lodging in the area and also highlights restaurants, activities and attractions in the area. The website introduces trip planners to the Conejo Valley which offers all of the fun yet none of the crowding of nearby destinations. Located less than 30 minutes from the beaches of Malibu and 45 minutes from Los Angeles, from a leisurely hike to a foodie-centric tour or a day of retail therapy, Conejo Valley has everything you need to enjoy a perfect vacation while experiencing unique local venues and the active yet relaxing lifestyle of the Conejo Valley.
