Greater Fort Lauderdale CVB rebrands to Visit Lauderdale

Sunday, 25 Sep, 2021 0

The Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention and Visitors Bureau recently announced its new brand name as Visit Lauderdale with the destination tagline ‘Everyone Under the Sun,’ reflecting the diversity and welcoming nature of the Greater Fort Lauderdale region.

To illustrate the new brand, Visit Lauderdale commissioned internationally renowned airbrush artist Avi Ram, a Greater Fort Lauderdale resident, to paint a new ‘Everyone Under the Sun’ mural.

The mural is on display at the entrance of the W Fort Lauderdale hotel.

The brand launch also included the debut of the official Visit Lauderdale Everyone Under the Sun beer, crafted by Fort Lauderdale’s Gulf Stream Brewing Company.

Flags displaying the new Visit Lauderdale logo are flying high from hotels, the Water Taxi, on airboats out in the Everglades and at many other Broward County locations.

It comes as the US  announced  borders will reopen in November for vaccinated travellers from the UK,  EU and around  the  world.

“One of my goals when I took over as head of Broward tourism five years ago was to rebrand the organization and our destination to better support our community through tourism jobs and the positive economic impact it brings,” says Stacy Ritter, President and CEO of Visit Lauderdale.

“We have an incredibly diverse and inclusive community that is welcoming to literally everyone under the sun, and that message is now infused into all of our marketing as we invite people to Visit Lauderdale.”

Tourism leaders will continue to focus their efforts on marketing the entire Greater Fort Lauderdale region as a top destination for travelers, meetings and convention attendees and sports groups – just with a new name.

The name Visit Lauderdale went through extensive consumer focus group testing and consistently emerged as the favourite of people interested in Greater Fort Lauderdale area trips.

It will serve as a call to action in destination ads inviting people to Visit Lauderdale and experience not only the area’s beaches, but all the great people and places between the beaches and the Everglades.

“We have 31 municipalities in Broward County, all of which are unique and alive with their own culture, flavour and activities,” adds Ritter.

“Our largest city, Fort Lauderdale, is just one of those 31 cities, but the name Lauderdale is the most recognizable. It helps us put the entire Broward County area on the map for visitors.”
