Dress up your business for Newcastle 500

01 Nov 2018

The 2018 Newcastle 500 is just around the next turn - and City of Newcastle is calling on all businesses to dress up and rev up to welcome Supercars fans into the city.
 Dress up your business with Supercars livery for a chance to win an exclusive Newcastle 500 prize pack, with competition now open.

Members of the City's Customer Service team dressed up our reception area in the City Administration Centre.

Lord Mayor Nuatali Nelmes said the City aimed to find the business with the most striking display.
"We're now around three weeks out until Newcastle's biggest event, so it's time for everyone to get into the spirit as we welcome tens of thousands of visitors to our city," the Lord Mayor said.
"Last year we saw bars decked out with chequered flags and event posters, bottle shops sporting balloons and bunting, even a day care centre with decorations custom-made by their kids.
"Lowes in the Hunter St Mall was the stand-out and last year's winner. Their staff went above and beyond to get into the spirit of things and I reckon they will be hard to beat again this year.
"City of Newcastle is kicking things off by dressing up the foyer of the City Administration Centre as well as the Newcastle Shop located at Newcastle Museum."
The winning business and staff will receive six three-day Newcastle 500 passes, six merchandise packs and six behind-the-scenes tours of the pit lane garages.
