Visit Mesa is the destination marketing organization for Mesa, Gilbert and Queen Creek and works to promote the area as a premier business and leisure travel destination. Visit Mesa’s website,, was recently redesigned as part of a rebranding effort to help strengthen the region’s attributes to potential visitors.

“We collected feedback from leisure and business travelers on what type of online presence would be most helpful for them to use from any type of device and with our partner at simpleview created a responsive, easy-to-navigate and beautiful website representing the best of our region,” said Marc Garcia, President and CEO of Visit Mesa.
