Our community partners help us build connections between our members and consumers. Many of the partnerships created this past year will continue to soar forward into the upcoming years. We started off our year by creating the foundation of a local campaign to highlight our amazing businesses in the community. We wanted to elevate the stories of Medicine Hat by creating a podcast and video series which showcase some of these stories. By reaching out to community partners and getting these projects in the works we have been able to highlight these businesses all year long. During the takeoff of this campaign, we were presented with the opportunity to form a collective downtown to help promote and engage in an amazing annual event for our community. This elevated our community connections and partnerships massively and the event was a major success as many partners came together to encourage consumers to shop and support our downtown. These partnerships are important to continue ‘Fuelling our Business Community’. We look forward to the future as these partnerships continue to rise.
