Carmel, Ind.-The Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau was honored with the Silver Award for the 2013 Davey Awards for Mobile Website in the Travel category.

Simpleview Inc., HCCVB’s marketing partner for interactive and web services chose the bureau’s mobile site earlier this year as one of its “best of the best” and selected it for the nomination. The site offers streamlined content, simple straightforward navigation, and simple clicks to call or access social media channels.

“It’s gratifying to see the Hamilton County CVB’s hard work to showcase their amazing destination interactively acknowledged through this award,” said Greg Evans, Vice President of Account Services at Simpleview. He continued, “Hamilton County CVB is an example of a DMO that is pushing the envelope while maintaining best practices, and this award helps highlight their efforts and achievements.”

The Davey Awards based on the story of David’s defeat of Goliath honors achievements of the "Creative Davids" who derive their strength from big ideas, rather than stratospheric budgets. The Davey is sanctioned and judged by the International Academy of the Visual Arts, an invitation-only body from firms such as Condé Nast, Disney, GE, Microsoft,, and others.

The Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau promotes tourism growth through strategic marketing, hospitality and community development initiatives. It has welcome centers in Carmel, Fishers, and Noblesville.
