On September 1st, another “High Profile” organization has joined the Joomla! club. The newest Joomla! powered website is Sweetflanders.eu, which was commissioned by ‘Tafelen in Vlaanderen V.Z.W’ and built by the Mijnkmosite team of Analys4IT.
Yes, that’s a bit of ‘self promoting’ but bare with me. ‘Tafelen in Vlaanderen’ is an important organization, and not because I say so. It is a non-profit organization which coordinates the joint efforts of it’s members: Tourism Flanders, and the Tourism departments for all Flemish provinces. This initiative is supported by the regional government of Flanders.
With Sweetflanders.eu, ‘Tafelen in Vlaanderen’ hopes to boost tourism in Flanders in the wake of Belgium’s chairmanship of the European Union. Through their website they’ll introduce you to 56 bed-and-breakfasts across the region; and they try to give you an idea of how ‘sweet’ life in Flanders can be (It totally is, take my word on it.) The main focus of the website is their digital magazine. Unfortunately, the magazine operates independently from Joomla! but the site itself runs on Joomla! 1.5.20 and uses a wide array of modules and components which are commonly used by most Joomla! experts.
I’d suggest you check out the site, and let us know what you think.
