ActiveWin Sponsors Northern Marketing Awards 2019

On Thursday 21st November, ActiveWin Media was a proud sponsor of the 2019 Northern Marketing Awards held in The Point at Emirates Old Trafford.

The night celebrates the creativity, excellence, and achievements of the digital marketing industry in the North, with 21 separate gongs up for grabs, rewarding marketing campaigns, in-house teams, and agencies.

It’s not easy to get your hands on an NMA either. Each award is put before an esteemed panel of industry leaders and experts over a rigorous two-stage process that includes pre-scoring just to determine a shortlist before the eventual winner is decided.

ActiveWin was honoured to sponsor both the ‘Best Sport Campaign’, which was handed out by our Digital Content Manager, Luke Parkinson, and the coveted ‘Best Large Agency’ which was passed over by our Sales Director, Brian Young.

Brian said, “As an established Manchester-based business, which already supports a number of events and initiatives in the city, it’s only right for us to be seen to be recognising performance at the Northern Marketing Awards.

“Well done to all the winners and in particular, Conkers Communications and Wavemaker North who won the two ActiveWin-sponsored prizes.”

The Future’s Bright

Alongside our sponsorship, ActiveWin was also nominated for the Best Digital Marketing Campaign thanks to our product cross-sell campaign with Betfred.

CRM Director, Suzanne Church, said, “The Northern Marketing Awards was a great opportunity to celebrate some of the fantastic work that the ActiveWin teams deliver on a daily basis, alongside others in the local marketing industry.

“2020 is looking exciting for the Lifecycle Marketing Department, and our nomination for the Best Digital Marketing Campaign is a real boost for the whole company.

“We’ll continue to work closely with our client Betfred in the New Year, with the focus on refining our CRM campaigns to increase KPIs throughout the year, as well as working on the optimisation of SEO and content.

Graham Hoy, Senior Onboarding Manager, echoed Suzanne’s thoughts; “Industry recognition highlights the excellent quality of work carried out by ActiveWin across the board, from our PPC and Media buying to affiliate marketing teams.

“We’re looking forward to working on our new automated multi-product prioritisation model in 2020, which hopefully means that the best is yet to come.”
