Jacksonville and the Beaches Welcomes dtSearch

“People want to find things right away. My goal was to have people find the information they need in three clicks or less.”

“The addition of the search function using dtSearch helps make that possible.”
Jacksonville has something to offer everyone: miles of uncrowded beaches; ecological and nature based excursions; world-class golf courses; top-of-the-line tennis facilities and other recreation; historical sites and architecture; sporting, gaming and cultural activities; unique shopping and dining; nightlife and entertainment; festivals and events; a riverfront festival marketplace and river cruises; and a very, very long and rich history.

According to the Jacksonville & the Beaches Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB): “Northeast Florida was first inhabited by Timucuan Indians who lived along creeks and waterways. The Spanish came into the area in 1513, led by Juan Ponce de Leon. He named the area La Florida and, in doing so, established the region's rich tradition of history and heritage. In 1564, the French built Fort Caroline in what is now Jacksonville, establishing the first Protestant colony in America. They lost their foothold in Florida to the Spanish, who conquered the French and built a settlement in nearby St. Augustine in 1565, 55 years before the Mayflower landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts.”

Today, the CVB is the sales and marketing agency responsible for attracting visitors to the Jacksonville metropolitan area. Its mission is to market the area as a destination for visitors, resulting in increased sales of room nights, tourism tax revenues and employment opportunities. The CVB is dedicated to selling greater Jacksonville as a convention and leisure travel destination on regional, national and international levels.

For searching content on the CVB site, the CVB recently added the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine to its site. “People want to find things right away,” says Kory Martin, Manager of Communications Technology and leader of this project for the CVB. “My goal was to have people find the information they need in three clicks or less. The addition of the search function using dtSearch helps make that possible.”
