E-site Marketing Secures Thirteen “WebAwards” Including
Highest Honor for “Best Restaurant Website”
Bethesda, MD, (January 9, 2007) – E-site Marketing, a leading Internet marketing firm specializing in the hospitality industry, was recently recognized by the prestigious Web Marketing Association with thirteen WebAwards, including Best Restaurant Website for Studio, the signature restaurant of Montage Resort & Spa in Laguna Beach, California (www.studiolagunabeach.com).  The additional twelve awards were received in the Hotel and Lodging category with six Outstanding Website awards and six Standard of Excellence awards:

The tenth annual 2006 WebAward competition for outstanding Website development included more than 2300 Websites from 35 countries in 96 industry categories.  E-site Marketing captured the largest number of awards in the Hotel and Lodging category and ranked third overall.  A team of distinguished, independent Internet professionals judged each Website on seven different criteria including:  design, copy writing, innovation, content, interactivity, navigation and use of technology.

In an effort to create synergy with the existing Montage Resort & Spa Website, also designed by E-site Marketing and recipient of numerous awards, the Studio restaurant Website was designed to aesthetically reflect the casual elegance and artistic craftsmen-style of the five-star property.  A visually dramatic montage of sophisticated restaurant and culinary photography is integrated with elegant music, engaging information, and interactive features such as online reservation and RFP capabilities.

According to Jeff Johnson, Vice President of Marketing, Montage Resort, Spa & Residences, “One of our major goals with Studio is to establish the resort as a world-class culinary destination, and this Website clearly reflects that vision.  The customer response to the site has been overwhelmingly complimentary, and this WebAward demonstrates E-site Marketing’s ability to deliver, on a consistent basis, benchmark creative and technologically innovative Websites that add substantial value to our marketing efforts.”

As the winner of twelve WebAwards in the Hotel and Lodging category, E-site Marketing presented a portfolio of Websites that represent a diverse range of creative, usability and technology expertise.  “Our clients’ online marketing needs and expectations have evolved significantly in the last year,” noted Felix Laboy, president and CEO of E-site Marketing. “It is imperative that as their Internet marketing partner of choice, we develop not only award-winning Websites, but Websites that continue to evolve in terms of content and creative presentation, technology, interactivity, and overall results.”
