Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau Launches Pinterest Account

ANAHEIM, Calif. (March 14, 2013) – The Anaheim/Orange County Visitor & Convention Bureau (AOCVCB) today announced the launch of a new Pinterest account to further promote the area as a leading travel and leisure destination.

Pinterest is a social media platform that allows users to create and manage theme-based image collections such as dream vacation spots, events, hobbies and more. Users can browse other “pinboards” for inspiration, “re-pin” images to their own pinboards, or “like” other users’ photos.

“Pinterest is the latest asset in our social media lineup, which includes Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and the OC Up Close blog,” said Jay Burress, AOCVCB president & CEO. “Each Pinterest board offers leisure and business visitors a glimpse into the OC lifestyle through visual storytelling, and allows us to inform and connect with our visitors in new and engaging ways.”

The AOCVCB’s Pinterest site displays imagery on a variety of themed boards pertaining to all things Orange County and the surrounding area. The Pinterest account currently features 18 boards, including Outside Adventures, OC Beaches, Theme Parks, Sports, OC Style, Just for Kids, Culture, Deals & Discounts and OC Weddings & Venues.
