As Philadelphia prepares to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention, the Host Committee turned to O3 World to upgrade its existing website, www.PHLDNC.com. The first phase launched today, offering a more navigable, easy-to-use experience as they search for information related to the Convention, which comes to the City of Brotherly Love July 25-28, 2016.
The first phase of the PHLDNC.com refresh features a number of updates to the site’s visual design and user interface, including a new mobile menu to make the site fully navigable across devices. The O3 World team also turned the Host Committee’s Vendor Directory, which provides information about vendors and suppliers available for contract into a live searchable database available on-site for anyone seeking vendors for their own Convention-related needs. The Vendor Directory aggregates information by business name or specialty and category, and enables hyper-specific searches by providing an option to filter by specific business certification. Lastly, the site’s new CMS will improve the ease and speed with which the Host Committee provides updates and news as the Convention nears.
These are the first in a series of upgrades the Host Committee and O3 World will make to the website as the Host Committee prepares to welcome, inform, and make announcements to local residents, businesses, Convention guests, and members of the press leading up to the Democratic National Convention.
“We’re proud to partner with the Host Committee and donate our services for such an important initiative.” said Keith Scandone, partner and CEO of O3 World. “As the DNC shines a spotlight on Philadelphia, it’s an honor to make a positive contribution to an event that showcases city’s growth and significance.”
