Simpleview, the US-based provider of digital strategy and technological sales and marketing solutions for destination marketing organisations (DMOs), has added a European office to address the needs of the company’s expanding international clientele.
“We are excited about our business prospects in Europe and we also recognise the importance of establishing an office to serve our current clients in the region” said Rich Reasons, President of Simpleview.
The new office in Oslo, Norway is the first to open outside the US for Simpleview, which has offices in Arizona, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and California.
The move will support the company’s growing customer base in Europe, which includes existing clients Prague Convention Bureau, The Hague Convention Bureau, Edinburgh Convention Bureau and Innovation Norway.
The new office will be led by Rolf Senstad as Simpleview’s General Manager in Europe. His first task will be to collaborate with European DMOs, Regional Tourist Boards (RTBs), National Tourist Boards (NTBs) and Convention Bureaus (CBs) to determine what technology, training, support and marketing tools they need to succeed.
“With Rolf leading the way, we will be able to identify the unique needs and requirements of European Convention Bureaus and Destination Marketing Organizations so we can continue to innovate and evolve our business models and industry best practices in the areas of sales, marketing, research, bidding, reporting and other mission critical disciplines,” said Seasons.
Senstad previously worked with Innovation Norway as project leader when Simpleview was awarded a contract to deploy a Content Management System, Customer Relationship Management platform and supporting technologies for VisitNorway.com, a website that reaches more than 20 million visitors annually.
Simpleview provides client relationship management (CRM) and content management systems (CMS), website design, search marketing, revenue generation, and mobile technologies for destination marketing organisations.
Opening the European office will support the company’s growth worldwide. Of the more than 400 DMOs that Simpleview works with, more than 50 are outside the US, including Melbourne, Australia, Dubai, United Arab Emirates, Macau, China, South Africa Tourism, Sarawak, Malaysia, Guadalajara, Mexico and Meet in Reykjavik.
