FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
VANCOUVER, B.C.: HOLLYWOOD NORTH FINDS NEW HOME ONLINE
Launch of VancouverBC.com provides comprehensive look at beautiful Vancouver, B.C.’s past, present, and future for locals and visitors alike.
Vancouver, B.C. – November 3, 2008 – New website VancouverBC.com will provide the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on people, places and events in the popular Canadian city. Using proven online media tools like video blogging, visitors to the site will be able to browse local events in Vancouver, extensive information on the best places to dine, shop, stay and more. There will also be the most up-to-date real estate, travel, business, entertainment, sports and fashion news from Vancouver on the website.
Vancouver B.C. continues to grow in popularity with both North American and international tourists. Figures from Tourism BC show that the city attracted $10.7 billion of revenue from tourism in 2007, with the amount of European travelers visiting Vancouver up by 5% on the previous year. With 2008 expected to show similar successes, the need for an all-in-one information portal is obvious.
VancouverBC.com co-founder Matthew Toren says, “We created VancouverBC.com to be the ultimate source for both locals and tourists, with interactive news, articles, videos, fashion alerts, reviews and much more. We look forward to the continued growth of the site and have even more exciting features that will be integrated in the beginning of 2009.”
Helping to set the VancouverBC.com website apart from similar sites is the exclusive content. These include normal blogs as well as video blogs by local media personalities, adding authority to the existing content already on the site. Features include interviews with resident and visiting stars and coverage of the local festivities in Vancouver, including charity events, award ceremonies, sporting matches and international festivals like the recent Vancouver International Film Festival. These offer everyone a real taste of Vancouver culture.
The multi-faceted social scene, beautiful parks, culinary highlights, active beaches and world-class concerts make Vancouver one of the hot spots in British Columbia for tourists to visit. Add diverse fashion, top spas, filming locations, prime real estate, top sports teams and exciting businesses and Vancouver’s reputation as one of the most desirable places to visit and to live in North America is easy to understand.
To enjoy the city to its fullest, VancouverBC.com visitors can make travel reservations, order tickets to local events, utilize a helpful business directory or simply check weather forecasts. Additionally, visitors can discuss Vancouver with people from around the world and make plans to check out nearby historic cities like Gastown and Victoria or sporty Whistler, host of the 2010 Winter Olympics.
An exclusive partnership with top local publication Vancouver View Magazine gives the site further relevance and ensures VancouverBC.com is the best source for information on the region, its attractions and its people.
