May 4, 2010. Brooklyn. Huge’s NYCGO.com won a 2010 People’s Voice Webby Award in the Tourism category. The site, created for New York’s official tourism organization NYC & Company, is the ultimate interactive experience for finding out what’s currently hot in the city, from a phone, web browser, or interactive kiosk at any number of official information centers. Huge built upon the strategy that “everyone’s a local” to create an extremely personalized site. Available in 10 languages, it appeals to the city’s global population of visitors. NYCGo is the best, most usable site New York visitors and residents have ever seen. Accolades have been given at the mayoral level (thanks, Mr. Bloomberg!) and new partnerships continue to expand the site’s reach.
NYCGo.com and Huge will be honored at the 2010 Webby Awards Gala, hosted by B.J. Novak of The Office, on June 14th in New York City.
