Syndical powers the islands’ event marketing by automatically publishing event details to local, regional event calendars
COUPEVILLE, Wash., June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ – Partnering with Syndical, the Whidbey and Camano Island Tourism Board has created an interconnected event calendar linking its six chambers of commerce with one centralized event calendar which automatically publishes those events to local and regional calendars including Seattle TV and radio stations.
“Seeing our events on a local Seattle calendar reminds people that Whidbey and Camano Islands are a great getaway location that’s very close,” said Sherrye Wyatt, public relations and marketing director for Whidbey and Camano Islands Tourism. “Syndical has simplified the process of getting all of the islands’ events onto one central calendar and then sharing that calendar with regional event calendars to make more folks aware of fun things to do on the islands. We also appreciate that calendars on our tourism and Chamber of Commerce Facebook pages are also kept fresh with new events.”
Syndical’s patent-pending, cloud-based technology solves the event marketing problem of how to share event information quickly and easily with the world. Using the Syndical event calendar, local chambers on the islands post events to their own website calendar and with one click those events are automatically published to the main WhidbeyCamanoIslands.com calendar, and across the web. Events flow automatically to regional event calendars such as Seattle stations KOMO-TV (ABC) and KIRO-TV (CBS), as well as regional radio stations.
The Syndical event widget can be easily and fully customized to match the customer’s website and supports rich text format and embedded links, so as the event is shared out across the syndication network, there is always a link back to the original event page allowing customers to find the original source. The calendar also supports multiple event views and a public and private mode.
The Syndical event marketing platform helps organizations simplify their event marketing efforts with customizable on-line events calendars that automatically update and publish event information across the internet.
