ad:tech expositions, LLC (http://www.ad-tech.com), the leading organizer of conferences and exhibitions for the global marketing community, today announced that it took the top prize--"Best Overall" honors--and "Best Use of Technology" in the first annual Tradeshow Web Site Awards. The Society of Independent Show Organizers (SISO), The Jordan Edmiston Group, Inc. (JEGI) and Tradeshow Week earlier this month jointly presented these "Best in Class" awards.
ad:tech, a unit of dmg world media, was selected from among more than 100 tradeshow producers for successfully using digital media and the Web to build relationships with its communities beyond the traditional event. The judging committee, which included digital media executives and tradeshow veterans, cited ad:tech's "exceptional exhibitor and sponsor video testimonials from the show floor" featured on the ad:tech homepage, according to Mary Beth Rebedeau, executive director of SISO. The judges also said that the ad:tech Web site "was loaded with information and was user-friendly."
"This honor from our peers in the tradeshow industry reinforces our efforts to engage with a new generation of marketing executives," said Don Knox, VP, ad:tech exhibitions. "ad:tech is dedicated to connecting all sides of the brand marketing landscape and providing them with innovative strategies, tools and techniques to succeed in a dynamic, digital world."
