The Northern California city that received national attention in February 2017 following serious damage to the Oroville Dam now has a reason to celebrate: the Oroville Economic Alliance recently garnered notice from the International MarCom Awards with a three-part video series that won a Gold Award for excellence in messaging and production quality. The video series, which is available to view on the Oroville Economic Alliance YouTube channel, was developed to share real success stories from thriving businesses throughout Butte County. The City of Oroville, which has positioned itself as “California’s Business Oasis,” aims to attract the attention of companies looking to expand or relocate to a business-friendly area of the golden state.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for sharing a meaningful, business-focused message that reflects everything we value in Oroville,” said Sandy Linville, President and CEO of Oroville Economic Alliance and the Oroville Area Chamber of Commerce. “As we work to counteract the negative impact that last year’s emergency had on public perception of our area, these videos are helping us tell our story in an authentic way that explores the features and characteristics of our community that matter to businesses looking for a new home.”
