Xmas Pairs in the CBD

Hamilton Central Business Association is once again running the extremely successful Christmas Pairs promotion on The Breeze radio station this December!

Based on the classic old school game of memory, listeners will be asked to pair up a number on a door with the right business to win the prize behind the door.

There will be a promotional campaign around this including ad libs crediting businesses, trailers for the competition and a minimum of 60 commercials featuring the prize pack made up of vouchers and prizes donated from businesses in the CBD. The campaign will run from Monday 4 December to Friday 22nd December 2017. 

Christmas Website Promotion

We are setting up a dedicated page on our website hamiltoncentral.co.nz to showcase Christmas gift ideas available in the City.  We can arrange to visit your business, take photos and then upload the products to the Christmas page.  

If you would like to be included in this promotion just email admin@hamiltoncentral.co.nz and we will arrange for Samera to call by your business to take some photos of three products you would like included.
