A Meaford & District Chamber of Commerce event has taken top honours.  Dragons’ Den Meaford has won a provincially recognized marketing award from the Economic Developers Council of Ontario (EDCO). 

The award, for the category of Product Development - Business Retention/Expansion, was presented at the President’s Dinner and Ontario Economic Development Awards Ceremony on February 3rd.

Local representatives from the Meaford & District Chamber of Commerce (MDCC) and Municipality of Meaford were on hand at the Toronto Marriott Downtown Eaton Centre to receive the honour.

The 2nd annual Dragons’ Den Meaford, for which the award was presented, took place last October at Meaford Hall.  Organized by the MDCC, the event was created as a direct result of the recent Meaford Economic Development Strategy (MEDS) to help spawn new start-up businesses within the Municipality of Meaford.  Modeled after the similarly-titled CBC television program, the 2010 competition resulted in approximately $25,700 in cash and prizes awarded to aspiring entrepreneurs.

“We are very pleased that Dragons’ Den Meaford has been recognized by EDCO.  We thought it was a good and unique event and we are thrilled to know the Municipality agrees and we thank them for the nomination”, says MDCC President Geoff Solomon.
