CGI Communications Partnership

The City of Newark recently partnered with CGI Communications, in cooperation with the National League of Cities and United States Conference of Mayors, to develop a cost-free community showcase program that will allow Newark to better promote tourism, educate and welcome future families and residents, recruit new business and more. The partnership opportunity includes the development of high-quality videos on a variety of topics of interest to Newark and/or its constituents – all at no cost to the City. Costs are absorbed through sponsorship by local businesses and in concert with local non-profits, all of which are solicited by CGI.
