Last night saw the hosting of the 2015 Construction Marketing Awards, at which the winners were announced. Detailed below is the shortlist together the winners and highly commended. Congratulations to all. It was a great evening, showcasing the best in construction marketing.
While competition was tough in all categories, judges were pleased that some of the new categories were particularly well subscribed, with Best Use of Content Marketing, and PR Agency of the year particularly competitive.
Chair of Judges, Ian Exall, said: “It’s great to get a record number of entries, even if it makes judging harder!
“But it wasn’t just the number that judges remarked on, once again we have seen a significant uplift in quality. It’s great to see the construction marketing community continuing to raise the bar, and deliver real bottom-line improvement for their employers.”
