Commonwealth Games 2012 on horizon for leading digital media company.
The contract to become the preferred communications and media partner to the Commonwealth Games Council for Wales was hotly contested with companies across the UK submitting tender proposals.
In line with the demands of a high-profile global event, the evaluation criteria dictated that the successful company must be able to add value to the Commonwealth Games brand, combined with a proven track record for producing creative, professional and effective media solutions.
As one of Wales' most successful integrated marketing communication companies, jumping these hurdles was easy for Horizon.
Chris Jenkins, Commonwealth Games Council for Wales, said: "We were delighted with the professionalism, creativity and enthusiasm Horizon exhibited in its written tender and our subsequent meetings.
"We are convinced that the partnership between the Commonwealth Games and Horizon is a winning combination for Wales."
"This is an exciting opportunity for our company", said Bob Gate, director of Horizon.
"It's not everyday you get to develop a global brand. This contract is a huge pat on the back for our design and production team.
"When you win this type of contract you know you are in the premier league. All of our customers, big or small, are used to receiving the best of service and creativity from us. Now the Commonwealth Games will benefit too."
Horizon's contract with the Commonwealth Games Council for Wales includes designing the Commonwealth Games logo 2010 and the logo for the Commonwealth Youth Games 2008, the design and production of the sponsorship media (a/v presentation), the development of the official website, and all other promotional and print-based material required for the duration of games right up until 2012.
