By: By Joanna Pawlowska

The Arlington Convention and Visitors Bureau recently announced the use of Real Simple Syndication (RSS) feeds on its Web site, becoming one of the first convention and visitors bureaus in Texas to employ this format, which allows for the delivery of regularly changing Web content on blogs, news sites and other Web sites.


The new feature allows Arlington.org to update frequently and deliver real time abstracts of favorite content to one site, providing comprehensive localized information and replacing the tedious process of sifting through numerous Web sites.


Arlington is also undergoing various other improvements to its tourism product, such as the opening of the new $1.1 billion Cowboys stadium, improved access along I-30, new developments in downtown Arlington such the new Levitt Pavilion, the addition of the United States Bowling Congress and the Bowling Museum Hall of Fame. Arlington will also host sporting events such as the Big 12 Championships, AT&T Cotton Bowl Classic and the 2011 Super Bowl.
