Attract and engage Sarasota County’s tourists, business visitors and locals
With some of the country’s most beautiful beaches and breathtaking natural environments, award-winning restaurants and high-fashion boutiques, and rich heritage of art, theatre and community, there’s a lot to love about Sarasota County. The tourism board knew it needed a digital presence that showcased everything people loved about the area. Visit Sarasota challenged atLarge to analyze the site, recommend a new strategy and build the experience.

Together We Explore New Horizons
Over the course of our five-year partnership, Visit Sarasota and atLarge have conceived, constructed and created several other notable campaigns. From social initiatives to mobile campaigns, our relationship with VisitSarasota produced countless firsts.
Vacationers are mobile, so are we
In 2011, we launched Florida’s first destination marketing iPhone app. This project empowered visitors to find local events, attractions, merchants, restaurants, hotels and more when they needed that information most.

Sweepstakes Portal Whisks Away Travelers
When Visit Sarasota launched the sweepstakes Sarasota in Shorts, it needed a digital destination where visitors could explore the many styles of vacationing Sarasota offers while also serving as a hub for the promotion. The result was a colorful micro-site that reflected the breezy shorts-all-year style of Sarasota and encouraged visitors to not just plan their next getaway, but tailor it to their own personal style.

Microsite Lets Travelers Sample the Flavor of Sarasota
Sarasota is as delicious as it is beautiful, and we built a culinary microsite just for the taste-travelers and foodie venturers. The Savor Sarasota microsite is also the digital hub of the annual Savor Sarasota Restaurant Week initiative.
Day in and day out, the arts in Sarasota continue to inspire tourists and residents alike. VisitSarasotaArts.org positioned the destination to live up to its reputation as Florida's Cultural Coast.
