The Drop, the leading source of news, knowledge, and product information specifically for managers in the hospitality industry, have been working on a new more contemporary, cleaner and uncluttered website design.
The new design style will also roll out across The Drop weekly newsletter to industry managers, and The Drop social media pages.
Each week over 9,500 senior managers, and 35,000 readers access important industry news through The Drop, and those numbers continue to grow each year.
The co-owners of The Drop, Danielle Rayner-Malloy and Justine Channing, see the new website design as an opportunity to enhance the professional content for industry mangers making it a one stop shop for access to contacts and information.
“We are excited about our website relaunch and the robust and professional information it provides through several enhanced rich content features. We believe that the new design, which will crossover to our weekly newsletter and social media pages, will allow The Drop readers to have a very informative experience with simplified access to articles of interest to their management roles”.
“The new design gives us more flexibility to add other features in future as we continue to grow and increase our industry presence across Australia and other leading gaming jurisdictions around the world”.
Find info quicker with the new search engine
The newly redesigned site offers quicker access to essential industry information with a “find” button that assists you to access articles of interest to you or look up an article you saw on The Drop through keywords.
You can also access your area of interest, whether you are in Marketing, Gaming, Operations, F&B, HR, IT or Finance, or general management through the new categories in the LIBRARY tab.
It’s quicker to add your company to the Company Directory
You can even do this yourself! As a supplier, you can add your information to the Company Directory by clicking through The Drop JOIN NOW tile or the JOIN tab on the webpage. Subscribe to the company directory and add your product information, company logo, information about your specialty field and contact details so hospitality managers can find you.
We envision this Company Directory page as a one-stop shop that will assist managers to easily find and directly contact product suppliers. It will enable managers to compare and contrast quotes and arrange product demonstrations saving their venue money and time.
We will be sorting this section into categories soon to make it user friendly for senior managers.
Connect with IGT quicker through the IGT Connects page
The IGT CONNECTS page features all the information on their recent release games along with specialist industry knowledge and training tools.
The GAME OF THE QUARTER will highlight the game features and points of difference of the strongest IGT game based on industry performance data.
Other featured game and systems information can be found in the PRODUCT INSIGHTS FROM IGT section with INDUSTRY KNOWEDGE BANKS housing the latest information and archived material for industry use. Clubs, casinos and hotels in each state can also contact the IGT state managers directly from the IGT CONNECTS page.
Finding the industry’s Top Jobs is quicker
If you are looking for work in the industry or just a change of pace The Drop connects you to all the leading industry recruitment specialists through the TOP JOBS page.
The Drop weekly mailout is free
You don’t need to be a member to receive the weekly newsletter containing access to the top weekly stories on the LATEST NEWS page, and the full archive of knowledge and news articles published through The Drop in the LIBRARY.
When The Drop page is fully expanded on your laptop or desktop the “sign up to our newsletter” link can be found above the banner on the top right of the webpage.
Club, hotel and casino managers are encouraged to forward this information to their management team (including Duty Managers and Supervisors) so they can be added to The Drop newsletter for free access to knowledge-based content.
The new website is now live and is accessed from the same address: www.thedrop.com.au
