NORFOLK, Va. - (April 7, 2010) - The Norfolk Convention and Visitors Bureau (NCVB), proudly announces the relaunch of its Website, www.visitnorfolktoday.com. Designed as a one-stop destination shopping tool for both meeting professionals and business and leisure travelers alike, the new site incorporates the latest in Web technology, navigation, social media and travel industry technology tools, resulting in a user-friendly platform which enables the site to basically fulfill every aspect of a visitors needs.
