Beam's receives accolades

Beam International Limited is proud to announce that their online computer game magazine HOTGAMES.COM won the prestigious Best Games Website award in the 1997 Australian Financial Review / Telstra Australian Internet Awards at the presentation ceremony held in Melbourne on November 10.
The Australian Financial Review / Telstra awards are the most prestigious Internet awards in Australia with over 1500 entries received for judging in 23 categories. The judges had the following comments to make about "Hotgames' site is easy to navigate, has effective graphics and is up-to-date in this fast changing subject area, creating a sense of immediacy of content. Visitors can participate in chat areas and submit their own tips and cheats, reinforcing the feeling of community."
"We are extremely proud to have achieved such an accolade for Hotgames which was launched only four months ago." said Mr. Adrian Giles, Beam International's Internet Manager. "However, we won't be resting on our laurels over this one - a game site like this takes a lot of constant work to maintain and update, and we're aiming to be recognized by the online community as the best of the best!"
Since its inception, HOTGAMES.COM has reached the amazing milestone of 10,000 daily page impressions and sends twice-weekly updates to a mailing list of over 10,000 enthusiastic gamers eager to hear the latest news on game demos.
"Our ultimate goal is to become the most visited, most talked-about site on the World Wide Web dealing with new games. We're working on building a site and a reputation that will have a world-wide appeal", commented Adrian Giles.
Beam's Internet Department is responsible for the development and maintenance of the company's own web sites, Internet promotional and push activities, and the creation and maintenance of dedicated sites such as The Internet Department recently completed the development of the Company's Annual Report on CD-ROM in HTML format. "We believe that this is the first time that such a comprehensive Company Annual Report has been developed in a cross-platform format", commented Adrian Giles.
