ADMA Awards 2013: Best Website (Silver)

ASSOCIATION FOR DATA-DRIVEN MARKETING & ADVERTISING (ADMA)
October 2013

With the launch of the national Barossa Campaign, the South Australian Tourism Commission created the Barossa Campaign Microsite an immersive interactive experience. Deloitte Digital created an ambitious HTML5 experience which had visitors interacting directly within the video to discover more about the region through maps and other content.

Deloitte Digital worked with the South Australian Tourism Commission to breathe a digital life into their Barossa TVC campaign. In developing the campaign site, one of the key objectives was to provide a way for the visitor to continue their TVC experience online and discover more about the Barossa region. By designing a rich online experience and simple workflow which led the visitor to specific content we could track the success of the site.
