What is the Campaign of the Year Award?

Comments Email Print

Marketing is all about results, and Plastics News wants to recognize those success stories. Plastics News Marketing Summit is launching a new award, the Plastics News Marketing Summit “Campaign of the Year,” to honor and showcase those companies that have demonstrated success from strong marketing activities that can be industry role models.

The award will offer both plastics processors and suppliers an opportunity to present their best work produced over the previous 12 months. To be eligible, a marketing campaign must have been launched publicly during calendar year 2016. 

Submissions will be judging by a blue-ribbon panel of marketing experts and Plastics News staff. Judges who have worked on a particular campaign submission will be disqualified from voting for that submission.  

Finalists for the award will be recognized during the 2017 Plastics News Marketing Summit on May 2, 2017, at the Westin Chicago Northwest in Itasca, IL. Finalists’ campaigns will be displayed at the Welcome Reception, May 1, and at the Marketing Summit conference, May 2, where we will also announce a winner of the people’s choice.
