The Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau is welcoming guests and event planners in Chicago to the western suburb with new interactive website: stayinlisle.com.
 
"The new site is highly interactive for visitors and very easy for us to manage on our end too. We couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out. It has everything an event planner needs to get started identifying a venue in Lisle in a very easy to use format," says Diane Homolka, executive director of the Lisle Convention & Visitors Bureau.
 
Features include customizable pages that allow users to add slideshows and testimonials, a custom events calendar and a multiplayer slideshow that highlights events and attractions in the Lisle area. Under the “Hotels" and "Meeting & Event Planning" sections planners can submit RFPs online and download a free event planning toolkit and Visitor's Guide from the Bureau.
 
"Although we wanted the site to be useful to event planners, it's just as informative for residents and visitors. The 'Explore Lisle' sections contains plenty of information about what to do in Lisle and where to stay while the 'Local Events' calendar keeps site visitors up-to-date on the latest goings-on in the area," explains Homolka.

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.
