Jewson had a great night, winning three awards, something which has only been done a few times before. However, even this great achievement was surpassed by Certsure, who went home with five awards!
Certsure won Best Product Launch, Best use of Events and Live Marketing, Best use of Advertising and Best Big Budget Campaign, with their Lucia Garcia carrying off the Young Marketer of the Year award. Jewson won Best Digital Campaign, Best use of Social Media, and Best Distributor Campaign.
The winners were announced at a glittering gala dinner in London with the 23 winners and five Highly Commended carrying off the prized trophies.
The thrill of finding you have won at the Construction Marketing Awards cannot be beaten, it is a real accolade marking your organisation as top marketers in the construction industry. But that is not the only reason to be at the Construction Marketing Awards gala dinner….
The judges have met and discussed the entries and chosen the shortlists of finalists in the 23 categories of the Construction Marketing Awards 2018.
The full list is below – if you’re on it, huge congratulations! It’s a great achievement to do so, beating off stiff competition from what judges described as “the best crop of entries we’ve seen”.

We are excited to confirm the celebrity host for the 2018 Construction Marketing Awards gala dinner! Irishman Andrew Ryan, one of the most exciting talents in recent years; in demand as an act and an MC.
Andrew’s storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanor make him a natural observational stand-up and one of the most in-demand acts on the UK comedy circuit. He has performed stand-up on Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Comedy Central at The Comedy Store, and Funny Rotten Scoundrels.
2017 saw Andrew return to Ireland to perform to sold out audiences in Dublin and Cork, as well as selling out his entire run at the Edinburgh Fringe (‘hard not to enjoy’ Daily Record). Andrew has also made appearances on TV3’s The 6 O’Clock Show and BBC1 NI’s The Blame Game Andrew’s new show ‘Sure, You Know Yourself’ won Best New Show at the Leicester Comedy Festival Awards in 2018.
We are thrilled that he will be bringing his winning style to the Construction Marketing Awards! Read More
