Our team at 3B Solutions worked as the branding and media experts of choice for the new and forward thinking Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce, as was best demonstrated on November 27, 2014 when the “3B Solutions Retail Business Excellence Award” was introduced at the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce and City of Barrie 2014 Barrie Business Awards Gala.
Since that summer, our team had been helping the newly re-established Board of Directors by producing a promotional video that was shown to tens of thousands of people at the Kempenfest celebration, and then by producing 36 videos for the Barrie Business Awards Gala, which were viewed by all of the business movers and shakers in Barrie. The Kempenfest video, which was cut to music, was eventually intended to be re-edited with voice over and interviews for internal use and as part of the Chamber website. Meanwhile, many of the Gala nominees asked us to cut the content of their productions into landing page videos for their websites.
Barrie’s business community is growing as fast if not faster than our population, and the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce should play a vital role in attracting enterprise and employment to the area. Our video was intended to assist the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce in attaining that goal, and to help the growth of the City of Barrie. The theory was that those businesses looking at Barrie as a potential hot spot will look at both those websites before deciding where to invest, and as such our video would be like a window to the city through which they would learn the benefits and advantages of doing business with Barrie.
Our team at 3B Solutions was honoured to be selected by the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce to present the “3B Solutions Retail Business Excellence Award” at the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce and City of Barrie 2014 Barrie Business Awards Gala that was held on November 27, 2014.
3B Solutions had only been a member of the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce for three years, and as such we could never have expected to find ourselves so quickly on the same stage, literally, with some of the most influential local businesses, such as OLG, the Business Development Bank, Powerstream, the Barrie Examiner, Scotiabank, Royal Bank, Bell Canada, and also City of Barrie Mayor Jeff Lehman; all of whom also gave away awards to small, innovative, and community oriented businesses.
Our team’s primary contribution was the production of 36 individual short story videos that were used to introduce each business that had reached the finals of the selection process. Those videos were in the past shot and edited by Rogers Communications, but our hard-earned reputation for high quality video production gave cause for the Board of Directors of the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce to give us the opportunity to step in.
In addition to the exposure provided by presenting an award, the production schedule allowed us to meet with dozens of local area business owners; the lion’s share of whom can benefit from our cross-media branding and media services. This honour offered a true win / win situation for all involved.
3B Solutions offers over 40 years of combined branding and media experience.
We are each experts in our fields, and we can bring our combined skills as a team to benefit you, our client.
