Hi Mel,
It is so difficult to throw relevant/useful suggestions into the pot when you must keep confidentiality in mind. (Not a criticism.)

You are after a large number of records (17,000). Put that in context of this forum which has 24,000 members after 5 years.

The marketer in me says to go for the old WIIFM factor – “what’s in it for me”. Develop an offer/incentive aimed at your target businesses supplying the data. The offer of a prize to consumers is too low value and too low interest to generate many responses, in my opinion.

You have a contact list for the industry. Don’t you have their email addresses?
