1000 Islands (Dec. 8) - The 1000 Islands International Tourism Council launched its completely revamped visit1000islands.com today.

The interactive design by ABC Creative Group of Syracuse integrates the latest digital trends and technology, including
dynamic video and rich imagery that emphasize the greatest natural and recreational assets of the 1000 Islands Region.

A custom-developed database points users to the numerous attractions, communities, events and accommodations in both the U.S. and Canada. The streamlined sitemap intuitively delivers key information and engaging content
to both first-time and returning visitors.

"This site is frequently the first introduction visitors from around the world have to the 1000 Islands and with this new design, we're showcasing the true beauty of the area in a way not done elsewhere," said Gary S. DeYoung, council tourism director. "Highlighting all that there is to see and do in the region was a goal and aimed at creating extended visits to both sides of the border."

The mobile-friendly website focuses on the region's proximity to a number of major markets, including New York City, Boston, Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal.

Visit www.visit1000islands.com to explore all the new features and enhanced usability.
