A million people logged on to NewcastleGateshead.com's website last year and NewcastleGateshead Initiative is celebrating reaching an average monthly increase of 60% compared to 2011 with the launch of a new online shop stocked with Geordie themed gifts and souvenirs.
Jason Yip, the company's digital marketing manager, said: “I’m delighted that NewcastleGateshead.com has reached such a significant milestone of one million unique visitors within the first 11 months of 2012. It shows that whether people are searching for information for a future visit, live in the North East and are looking for inspiration for the weekend, or are researching bringing a conference or meeting to the place – NewcastleGateshead is on the rise.”
The website features a blog section, image galleries as well as event details, offers and area information which are constantly refreshed to ensure that audiences are kept up-to-date with the depth and breadth of activities, events and attractions on offer in the city.
