Supply of a Welcome to Fife Website – Fife Council

Following a recent review of Fife Council websites, we are looking to update and refresh our WelcometoFife.com website. Launched three years ago, the website is an increasingly important marketing tool to promote the region as a visitor destination of choice to an external audience across the themes of Live, Visit, Study and Invest.

Over the last few years the focus has shifted predominantly towards the Visit element promoting Fife as a high-quality tourism destination. The redeveloped website will therefore focus on enhanced functionality, incorporating the latest technology and providing real-time information to promote the region and deliver an enhanced visitor experience.
The other themes of Live, Study and Invest will feature secondary to this, providing only key messages and/or links to external sites where appropriate.

Deadline date: 24/11/14
