DISCOVER DARTMOUTH STATEMENT
|Dear Discover Dartmouth Member|
We hope you are all having a successful Summer. It has been brought to our attention that a new website – Visit Dartmouth is being developed through the Dartmouth Visitor Centre and we wanted to assure you that this is not part of Discover Dartmouth.
Discover Dartmouth is managed by Visit South Devon and is the official website for Dartmouth and the surrounding area.
We have grown and developed this business and established ourselves with the support from yourselves, our members and local stakeholders. Which is no mean feet in this industry and especially through the Covid-19 epidemic. This is why as a Destination Management Organisation we needed to be working as a group in a very fragmented market. We are long term partners with Teignbridge District Council and deliver tourism and marketing initiatives for them and others alike across South Devon. It is our strategy to work together as partners with local stakeholders including Dartmouth Town Council. This relationship has meant we are offering a 25% discount on renewals, as well as free and upgraded web listings on www.discoverdartmouth.com and our staff have been working closely with the town to help deliver a successful Recovery Marketing Plan for Dartmouth in light of Covid-19 to help reopen the town.
We have worked with the Dartmouth Visitor Centre for many years and we were unaware that the Dartmouth Visitor Centre have been planning a new website. In fact we were very surprised, therefore we want to make sure that you our customer are rightly notified that we are in no way involved with the new website Visit Dartmouth.
The launch of the new Discover Dartmouth website will continue to take place in the coming weeks, and we are very excited with the outcome so far. The new website will look fresher and be more image led and will help us to increase engagement with our existing visitors and hopefully drive new visitors to the town.
We thank you for your ongoing support and membership of Discover Dartmouth.
Chairman Visit South Devon – Discover Dartmouth
