FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (January 3, 2019) — Just in time for National Plan for Vacation Day 2019, on January 29, the freshly revamped and enhanced Greater Fort Lauderdale Vacation Planner will make it easier than ever for Americans to enjoy the 705 million vacation days left unused last year [1].

“Based on user behavior data and research findings, we’ve rebooted the digital vacation planner to be incredibly valuable to visitors, both before and during their trip,” says Stacy Ritter, president and CEO, Greater Fort Lauderdale Convention & Visitors Bureau. “To help plan a vacation, it allows you to explore the destination, create customizable itineraries, make travel reservations and organize trip details all in one place. Then, while here, the new mobile enhancement highlights nearby experiences and attractions in real-time, based on your current location.”  

Available in six different languages – Chinese; English; French; German; Portuguese; Spanish – the Greater Fort Lauderdale Vacation Planner’s latest evolution includes the following:

  • Click-to-share feature
  • Curated collections of experiences and neighborhood (e.g. sample itineraries and must-dos for foodies, art-lovers or adventure-seekers)
  • Location-based, nearby things to do
  • Map/Route building
  • Meeting/Group planner integration and tools
  • Mobile-first design architecture
  • Visit Lauderdale TV integration, the destination’s 24/7 network featuring live and on-demand video programming

“Taking time off is essential to strengthening personal relationships, inspiring creative thinking, improving professional performance and promoting better health,” says Ritter. “There’s no better place than Greater Fort Lauderdale to escape, explore and restore.”
