While it does not cost to enter the North Canterbury Business Awards, there are a couple of opportunities that competitors are entitled to. Read on for more, or get in touch with Guy Graham at Enterprise North Canterbury if you have any questions at all.
Tickets to the Business Awards Gala Evening will be $185+GST each and include a silver service meal with the best local wine and beer, the glamorous and hilarious Jackie Clarke as MC, live music and - fingers crossed - an opportunity to go up on stage and accept your award!
Tickets must be reserved online and are limited due to high demand for this event. There is every chance you will get the number you request, however we must ensure that every business represented at the awards get a chance to attend and we will ensure that every participant in the awards has a minimum of two tickets available to them
On June 28th, all businesses that have submitted a successful awards entry will be notified. You will then be given the opportunity to advertise in a special North Canterbury Business Awards supplement that will be part of the North Canterbury News on 29 July. This is a massive 28 page supplement that lists all the competitors and provides a widely read advertising forum for all businesses entering the awards. Past supplements have proven to be very popular and an excellent tool to assist in getting the public voting for the coveted People’s Choice Award.
Dayna Burton at the North Canterbury News has given us an amazing deal, offering not-for-profit advertising rates for businesses who purchase an ad in the supplement and an equal amount of FREE editorial space!
The ad sizes and special rates available for both the supplement and general advertising throughout the paper are:
If your budget is limited we suggest your focus should be on inclusion in the supplement, but this is also a good opportunity if you want to maximise your newspaper advertising budget overall.
To take up this fantastic promotional opportunity, or if you have any questions about ad sizes or content, contact Dayna Burton at the North Canterbury News: firstname.lastname@example.org. Dayna can offer a lot of help in terms of what would work for you.
As always, ENC would like to thank our 2021 North Canterbury Business Awards Sponsors:
