The decision comes in the midst of a digital overhaul for The Forum, in which the community has launched a new website, and plans on developing a comprehensive social media presence. The Forum is a one of a kind community in the area, priding itself in having the best exercise, dining, and high end shopping in Wilmington, with the majority of its merchants locally owned and operated. The ultimate goal of the social partnership with SISDigital is to increase awareness of The Forum, drive foot traffic, as well as promote the tenants.

Realizing the importance of a strong digital presence, Director of Marketing for The Forum, Andrew Fallis spearheaded the initiative.

“We want to increase our digital presence to better showcase our amazing tenants, our beautiful development, and our unique local flair,” says Fallis. “The Forum offers the best dining, shopping, and entertainment experiences in Wilmington. By leveraging social media, we realized we will be better able to connect with new and existing customers to inform them of the exciting things happening here. SISDigital has an excellent platform that will enable us to achieve our objectives. Moreover, like so many of our retailers, SISDigital is a local company. We believe in shopping local and using our local resources to make our community better place.

We connected with SISDigital based off of their impressive social media portfolio including work with national nonprofits such as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, as well as local companies ranging from startups to boutiques. We are excited to embark on this partnership and see where it takes The Forum!”
