Hamilton Economic Development Project Team:
We originally met the folks running the Economic Development department back in 2002 when we participated in the Bay Area Leadership Program hosted by Volunteer Hamilton. After a year on course together and a lot of meetings about ways to promote the downtown core and development in the city as a whole we began to work with Economic Development, Tourism and Public Works to put some of our collective ideas in to action.
Banko Media built the first online image library for the city with over 5,000 images celebrating what it meant to work, live and play in Hamilton. In partnership with a variety of agencies over the years we worked together on annual reports, brochures, websites and advertising from big box to broadcast. In 2013 Banko Media finally became the agency and the photography studio of record for Economic Development eliminating some of the steps and lag time for content creation in what has become an increasingly fast paced environment with lead times of just days, sometimes just hours.
Banko Media is proud to be a partner in promoting our community. In 2015 we were recognized with a Economic Development Association of Canada award for best advertisment for our work in promoting Hamilton’s expanding food processing sector.
