Working with Digital Visitor, we’ve been able to convey to potential visitors exactly what it is about Bristol that makes it so special through bloggers they’re familiar with. We’re incredibly happy with the results – not only the coverage gained for Destination Bristol, but also the promotion of many of the city’s key stakeholders.”
