rio.comA little over a year ago at the TRAFFIC auction in New York City, Keith Levenson of Acme Media purchased Rio.com for $450,000.

This significant acquisition marked a changeover for Rio.com, as it went from a tech company website to a tourism website focused for people looking to visit the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The hard work is about to pay off, as the new Rio.com website went live this afternoon.
