Hard work pays off!
Spark Towers is brimming with excitement today after a big win at the Travel Marketing Awards 2015. We picked up the ‘Best Website’ award for our work on the strategy, design and development of Welcome to Yorkshire’s official website for the Tour de France Grand Départ 2014.
The digital platform acted as a first point of contact for millions of Tour de France tourists who flocked to the event providing handy information and showcasing the stunning scenery of the route and of the lovely countryside of Yorkshire. The whole event was a huge success and we were so chuffed to be a part of it!
Over the course of the historic Yorkshire Grand Départ, the critically acclaimed website generated 4.32 million page views and 1.25 million unique visitors taking the total number for the month leading up to the race to an astounding 11.3 million page views and 2.77 million unique visitors.
This isn’t the first recognition the Sparks have received for the site, as if it couldn’t get any tastier we also won the ‘Tasty Website’ award at the prestigious Big Chip Awards 2014.
A big Spark thank you to everyone that played a part in the project and supported us, we couldn’t have done it without you all.
