WILMINGTON, North Carolina — The Wilmington Convention Center, the largest convention center on the North Carolina coast, has announced the launch of a brand new website, www.businessmadecasual.com. The highlight of the new site is a virtual 360-degree tour that takes meeting and convention planners on a digital journey of the award-winning convention center’s venues and amenities.
The virtual tour gives users the ability to start with an overview map of the entire facility and then take a closer look at specific interior and exterior meeting spaces, as well as areas surrounding the waterfront building. Specific images in the virtual tour include shots of the event lawn, the exhibit hall, the grand ballroom, the junior ballroom, various meeting rooms, the marina concourse, the river concourse and the street view, as well as the option to jump to a 360-degree tour.
“We think our new website will give meeting and convention planners a much better idea of our capabilities and venues,” said Susan Eaton, general manager of the Wilmington Convention Center. “As more and more people coordinate meetings from afar, digital planning tools are becoming more important than ever.”
In addition to the virtual 360-degree tour, the new website features downloadable planning materials like a facility event guide, service forms and an interactive floor plan with floor layouts. The venue boasts 107,000 square feet of function space with event capabilities for 25 to 2,000 people.
The website includes updated photography of the Wilmington Convention Center, including its unique 12,000-square-foot waterfront event lawn, a space perfect for year-round outdoor and riverfront gatherings. It also features testimonials from past users, a food and beverage spotlight on the convention center’s award-winning chef Scott and updated information about the convention center and its staff.
