Pre-registration for a new .PUB domain began in June, allowing hospitality venues to further customise their web addresses with URLs that best fit their brands and their trade. Various websites were also established in winter, starting with Woolworths Liquor Group’s launch of the free Supplier Portal www.wlgpartners.com.au, which provides information about how suppliers can submit new products for consideration and aims to make it faster for customers to find out about them. The Wine Company also launched a new website: www.wineco.com.au, which incorporated an additional portfolio page for each brand distributor. Further, Canadian Club launched its CC Tap Map - a convenient web-based application that tells users where the nearest Canadian Club Draught is.
