Request for Quotes: Business Awards Videography Services
For the Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce


The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce is a member-driven, volunteer-led organization working to stimulate a strengthened and vibrant economy in our region through our connections, support and influence. Our vision is to be the most unified, valued and influential business network in our community. 

The Chamber of Commerce also provides many benefits to the business community, one of which is recognition. The Chamber is proud to recognize business success in our region through the annual Business Awards. Held annually in conjunction with National Small Business Week, the Business Awards provide recognition for exceptional Medicine Hat and Area businesses, with many local nominees moving on to be recognized and compete at the prestigious Alberta Business Awards of Distinction hosted by the Alberta Chambers of Commerce. Businesses and organizations can be nominated in 14 different categories, with winners being chosen by various adjudicating committees who meticulously review and grade the applications submitted to select the best possible recipient based on the information provided. With anywhere from 500-600+ attendees, the Chamber’s Business Awards has become one of, if not ‘the’, largest event of its kind in southern Alberta.

This year’s event will be held in a virtual format due to current pandemic restrictions; therefore attendance and event hosting would be performed virtually. In the case of restrictions lifting, the Chamber aims to coordinate smaller ‘watch-parties’ for attendees.

The Medicine Hat & District Chamber of Commerce is inviting quotes from interested parties who are qualified to provide videography services for pre-event deliverables and post-event deliverables each outlined below. The recording space will be provided by the Chamber (ex. Chamber boardroom); however, location is currently to-be-determined as we are working within pandemic restrictions and protocols.
