NEW: Business Video Spotlights

For a limited time, Downtown Bolton BIA would love to help promote its member businesses by featuring, AT NO COST, one business each month in a Video Spotlight! 🎥

Our videographer will work with you to showcase your business, its products & services and its people in a 30-60 second video that will appear on our website downtownbolton.ca and our social media pages. Businesses will also get a copy of the video to upload to their own social platforms! 

We invite small businesses in the Downtown Bolton BIA area (sorry, we cannot include franchises) to fill out the form using the link below, and one business will be selected randomly each month to have their very own video spotlight.
