This highly respected and energetic association awarded 1st prize to Bay Street for the ‘best practice, innovation, leadership, creativity, success and passion’ in main street marketing and advertising around the ‘Christmas in Port’ Christmas windows and evening shopping event
This award has been running for the last 15 years and really acknowledges the terrific work the Port Melbourne Business Association does for our community.
Held for the first time in 2009, the ‘Mainstreet Australia’ awards recognise people, programs and organisations that make our main streets succeed and prosper.
The president, Paul Littmann says it takes “hard work, dedication and initiative, to enable “our” main street to thrive and respond to the constant challenges of small business trading”.
The committee is made up of a selection of retailers and is always looking for more energetic people to participate or suggest ways in which to make this years event a real success.
New to the ‘Christmas in Port’ program of events is the welcomed financial support of Yarra Trams through their Community Partnership Program. Their support in promoting the ‘Christmas in Port’ events in 2014 will enable the ‘Christmas in Port’ program to be on the tram network – and beyond.
