Marlborough’s online profile has just been given a makeover in a bid to woo more admirers.
Destination Marlborough has unveiled a new-look website dedicated to show off all the region has to offer.
MarlboroughNZ.com includes new sections sharing the ins and outs of living and working here.
Destination Marlborough general manager Jacqui Lloyd says visitors who have a good time here could be inspired to make the region a permanent home.
“Travellers who have a positive holiday experience in the region are more likely to be inspired to consider returning to live, work or do business here.
“Having one site that can seamlessly serve up the right information to encourage this will be invaluable.”
The project is a partnership with Marlborough District Council and supported by multiple regional agencies, Jacqui says.
“It’s been built to provide an online portal to showcase Marlborough in a way that doesn’t duplicate what organisations are already doing, but instead, strengthens and underpins their activity.”
Until now, the website has been tailored towards attracting holiday visitors to the region, generating more than 31,000 visits a month.
Marlborough Mayor John Leggett says the new website fills a much-needed gap for people thinking of relocating, working or investing here.
“The site even has a section on film production, showcasing the amazing opportunities for filmmakers here in Marlborough,” he says.
Marlborough Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Hans Neilson says the site will be a valuable tool support business.
“It means that anyone wanting to find out more about doing business here is directed to the right place and given a range of organisations to connect with, based on their desired pathway and supporting businesses to attract talent into the region.”
