A web-based presence will soon be established for the Nanaimo Economic Development Corporation with two contracts recently awarded to two regional firms.
Nanaimo’s Cinnabar Vista Productions was awarded a photography and videography contract for $23,794 while Parksville’s Trinex Internet Solutions was awarded a $27,000 contract.
The work from both firms will be used for website designs for www.tourismnanaimo.com and www.investnanaimo.com, the economic development branch of NEDC.
“Both Trinex Internet Solutions and Cinnabar Vista Productions are excellent Vancouver Island companies,” said A.J. Hustins, NEDC board chairman, in a news release. “We are looking forward to working with each company to highlight Nanaimo and region for both business development and tourism opportunities.”
Hustins added that even though tourism and economic development both fall under the NEDC umbrella, both websites will offer a different look and feel.
Cinnabar Vista Productions is an award-winning production company, most recently receiving the 2010 LEO award for best documentary for its work on E.J. Hughes and the restoration of his wall mural now found in the Vancouver Island Conference Centre.
Trinex was selected from a list of five proponents.
NEDC is charged with marketing Nanaimo as a place to visit, invest, and do business.
