New Year, New Look for Douglasville Convention & Visitors Bureau

As 2017 kicks into full gear, the Douglasville CVB is excited to announce its brand new look! First up was our new logo, seen below!

6Douglasville CVB Quarterly newsletter subscribers, got a sneak peek at the logo, before the official launch to the public, on January 27th.

“The goal with the new logo was to create a fun, inviting and vibrant image that made you want to learn more about our community & to create an atmosphere, ‘Where You’re Always Welcome,'” said Samantha Rosado, Tourism Program Manager, for the Douglasville Convention & Visitors Bureau.

“In addition to the new logo, brand new marketing materials and a fresh look to the Douglasville Welcome Center are also expected later on this year. Also, be on the lookout for new retail items that will be available for purchase in the Douglasville Welcome Center, later on this summer,” said Rosado.

Keeping will all things ‘new,’ the 2017 Official Georgia Travel Guides hit shelves recently at the Douglasville Welcome Center, as well as the brand new Douglas County Community Guide published by the Douglas County Chamber of Commerce.

Each year, the Official Georgia Travel Guide has different themes, and due to the great popularity of filming in the state of Georgia over the past few years, the theme for 2017 is “The Year of Film.” Pick up a copy the next time you’re in downtown Douglasville, to learn about all the filming that has taken place throughout the state of Georgia, as well as right here in Douglasville/Douglas County!
