Redesign and Migration from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8

The Butler County Visitors Bureau, BCVB, is a destination marketing organization dedicated to creating exceptional tourism experiences for visitors throughout Butler County. Established in 2007, the BCVB helps promote the county’s unique destinations through small meetings, conferences, conventions, events, and attractions.

Challenge

The marketing team at the Butler County Visitors Bureau (BCVB) works hard to promote this Ohio county, outside of Cincinnati, as a tourism destination for food and drink, events and attractions but their website was getting outdated, making their job more challenging.

So the team decided to make a move from Drupal 7 to Drupal 8 to gain more flexibility in content management while getting a new front-facing design that is modern and mobile-optimized.

Solution

Inclind migrated the content into the Drupal 8 platform and incorporated the following features:

New Design
The project was very focused on creating a website that reflected modern tourism design trends while improving the mobile user experience.

User-Generated Content

An Instagram feed was incorporated to take advantage of visitor posts to allow the user to tell the story.

New Events Calendar
An interactive event calendar created that was easy to navigate, filterable and properly displayed repeating events, which their current website was unable to facilitate.

Drive Traffic and Engage Visitors
The redesign was focused on improving organic traffic and getting users to the right content to lower bounce rates and increase sessions.

Better Content Control
Content management flexibility was priority one so they could rotate seasonal information, promote featured content and show related content so visitors can keep moving through the site without hitting dead-ends.

The result is a fresh design focusing on big visuals, better mobile experiences and more control for the content managers.
