made in the shires
“Bennington Made” is a behind-the-scenes tv series that showcases unique Bennington businesses. Similar in format to Discovery Science’s “How It’s Made” and ABC News’ “Made in America,” the production is both modern and intriguing. With a focus on quality, craftsmanship, and locally-made products, the series puts a spotlight on the pride and celebration of products made by residents of Bennington. “Bennington Made” brings great opportunity to member businesses; they benefit from the exposure and they also receive the professional footage for use in their own marketing efforts. The best part? It’s free! The Chamber partners with the local cable access channel to produce the show. Additionally, the Chamber uses the program and videos to draw visitors, other businesses, and workers to the area.”
