With a growing library of news, articles, press releases, users, and events added to their website, The European Union Delegation of the European Commission to the USA had an ever-growing headache when it came to managing the content on their website. Managing their content was growing too big, too disorganized, and out-of-control. To solve the problem, the European Union Delegation of the European Commission to the USA partnered with leading web design firm, Blue Water Media.

After listening to the pains of the European Union Delegation of the European Commission to the USA, the Blue Water Media team immediately suggested a robust and open-source content management system; namely Joomla! The Joomla! System would be built out to maintain both the design, navigation, and content of the existing site, with additional tools and resources - in addition to a full content management backend.

The Blue Water Media designers were able to create a design that matches the existing EU site while delivering on new tools such as an interactive event planner that allows different users to schedule charities, galas, and conventions. All existing content was then transferred to the new content management system along with maintaining the structure of the old site. The final result is a more attractive and organized site that is easier to manage, update, and format - Making for less staff hours spent managing the content on the site.

About the European Union Delegation of the European Commission to the USA:
Recognizing the importance of American support for European integration, the Union's founders opened an information office in Washington in 1954. In 1971, it became a Delegation with full diplomatic privileges and immunities. The Head of Delegation was accorded full ambassadorial status in 1990.

The Delegation represents the European Commission in its dealings with the US Government for all matters within EU competence or purview. It reports on US developments to headquarters in Brussels and acts as a liaison with other international institutions in Washington, DC. Visit: eurunion.org
