Welcome to HWR Media & Communications
The company, known then as Hastwell Media, was established in 1972 by the late Harry Hastwell.
Harry and his son Mark built an enviable reputation as leaders in the media and advertising
industries in South Australia and Australia.
HWR Media & Communications, hereafter HWR, was formed on 1 July 1982 through the
amalgamation of South Australia’s three leading independent media representation companies…
• Hastwell Media
• Williamson & Associates
• Greg Rouse Media
In 1989, after close to ten years with News Corp, Tom Raggatt joined
the organisation thus HWR became Hastwell Williamson Raggatt
For thirty-eight years HWR has evolved into one of the largest
independent media representation organisations in Australia.
Currently over 100 media organisations entrust HWR to provide advice
and information on their behalf to customers in South Australia,
Western Australia, Queensland, Victoria and the Northern Territory.
In response to our customers’ needs, in 1996 HWR purchased graphic
design firm, Smart Designs and expanded both its publishing and
marketing services area. This was a significant milestone.
In addition, at this time we began our digital integration strategy,
completing work for General Motors Holden amongst other clients.
The development role has now expanded to a full service digital
agency providing advertising sales, web site development, email
marketing and performance measurement.

“The 2-wire bus buffer
revolution has begun!”
The 2-wire bus has been at its limit or falling down for too long.
Now the solution is here!
Most 2-wire bus designers have faced problems without the right solution. Problems can
occur on a 2-wire bus when the wrong bus buffer or no bus buffer is used.
• Existing bus buffers have large input-output offsets; this leaves little margin for external
noise or a loss in signal.
• Due to their large input-output offsets, most existing bus buffers can’t be inserted in multi-drop
or back-to-back in a system.
• Problems can occur when the number of devices on the bus or the length of the bus lines
has increased the capacitance to its maximum.
The IES5501 bus buffer fi xes all these problems.
Expand without the hassle, plug it in and see!
The IES5501 bus buffer, bringing the power back to the 2-wire bus designer.

Welcome from the Chair
Welcome to our fi rst Newsletter for the 2009 Festival. Less than 6 months to go and, like all
expectant parents, we are looking forward to the fi rst appearance of the Festival with a mixture of
excitement and perhaps a little apprehension. When the Program appears soon you will see for
yourself just what a huge and varied array of events this Festival will contain; many will be familiar
to those of you who have seen previous celebrations, and there are many which are innovative or a
different approach to old favourites.
I would like to thank everybody involved, either directly or indirectly: Festival Manager, John
Pullman, who brings experience and dedication to his position; Events Manager, Samantha
Foreman, who puts her fl air and eye for detail to everything she does; the members of the
Festival Committee who bring ideas, enthusiasm and passion to the direction of the Festival;
Event Convenors and their Committees who put their hands up to devote great time and energy
to organising each event; our very generous sponsors, without whom we would not even be able
to start organising an event of this scale; Friends of the Festival, who show their particular and
enthusiastic support of the Festival by joining their own exclusive club. And, fi nally, my thanks to
you all for your interest and support by attending this great celebration of the Barossa and its many
facets. Come with us: Celebrate the Blend!
