The prestigious Hunter Manufacturing Awards were held at Wests City (formerly Newcastle Panthers) on 16 October in front of nearly 500 attendees. It was a fun night with a Flashback to the 50’s and Grease….is the Word theme.
Amongst all the fun, however, the focus was still very much on celebrating the success of our local manufacturers and highlighting their importance to our local region. The annual Awards event profiles, promotes and recognises excellence in manufacturing in the Hunter, Central Coast and Mid North Coast. It was the 11th year for the awards.
HMA Chairman, Bob Cowan, took the opportunity to launch a new initiative which will give manufacturers the opportunity to be further assisted.
NBN Television and HMA have joined together and launched ‘world class, made here’, an initiative to further promote and assist manufacturers both via television medium and digitally.
An introductory video, along with three demo videos on randomly chosen companies, was communicated to the audience. The demonstrations were used to portray the diversification of manufacturing in the Region. The campaign is supported by online activity including website/microsite, Facebook and Twitter.
This microsite will be used as a business directory for all companies that participate and will be another avenue for companies to be further promoted, profiled and marketed.
