Wilmington Convention Center Launches New Website
The Wilmington Convention Center, the largest convention center on the North Carolina coast, has announced the launch of a brand new website, www.businessmadecasual.com. The highlight of the new site is a virtual 360° tour that takes meeting and convention planners on a digital journey of the award-winning convention center's venues and amenities.
The virtual tour gives users the ability to start with an overview map of the entire facility and to then take a closer look at specific interior and exterior meeting spaces, as well as areas surrounding the waterfront building. Specific images in the virtual tour include shots of the event lawn, exhibit hall, grand ballroom, junior ballroom, various meeting rooms, marina concourse, river concourse, street view as well as the option to jump to a 360° tour.
"We think our new website will give meeting and convention planners a much better idea of our capabilities and venues," said Susan Eaton, General Manager of the Wilmington Convention Center. "As more and more people coordinate meetings from afar, digital planning tools are becoming more important than ever."
In addition to the virtual 360° tour, the new website features downloadable planning materials like a facility event guide, service forms, and an interactive floor plan with floor layouts. The venue boasts 107,000 square feet of function space with event capabilities for 25 to 2,000 people. The website includes updated photography of the Wilmington Convention Center, including its unique 12,000 square-foot waterfront even lawn, a space perfect for year-round outdoor and riverfront gatherings. It also features testimonials from past users; a food and beverage spotlight on the Convention Center's award winning Chef Scott; and updated information about the convention center and its staff.
The Wilmington Convention Center's sophisticated maritime theme and décor and riverfront location, coupled with the area's history and Southern charm make it a popular coastal destination where fresh air meets fresh ideas. Meeting and convention attendees enjoy the building's amenities along with the historic river district, three nearby island beaches, outdoor activities, dining, shopping and much more. The area is within easy driving distance of Carolina Beach, Kure Beach and Wrightsville Beach and is home to nearly 8,000 hotel rooms and suites with unique settings ranging from the river to the sea.
