When we were honored with a gold Tower award for our website I was grinning pretty big. Not long after that, we were announced as the Best in Show winner for 2010. And then it was time to party!
Traverse City, MI (PRWEB) May 18, 2010
Oneupweb, a digital marketing agency based in Traverse City, MI, gathered amongst some of the country's most elite agencies for an evening of competition. The event went silent as Oneupweb made a loud statement--earning Best in Show for their corporate website, OneUpWeb.com.
"What a night," exclaims Oneupweb Founder and CEO, Lisa Wehr. "When we were honored with a gold Tower award for our website I was grinning pretty big. Not long after that, we were announced as the Best in Show winner for 2010. And then it was time to party!"
That party took place at the 2010 Business Marketing Association Tower Awards, held at Hotel Sax in Chicago. There, leading agencies gathered for food, drinks and tattoos. Oh yes-airbrushed tattoos were complimentary during the gala.
Despite the glittery frogs and dolphins that adorned business men and women, it was Oneupweb's website that made a true splash. It topped 300 entries in 38 different categories and more than 70 businesses to win the 2010 Best in Show award.
"Major silence occurred after we received the Best in Show award. I think everyone was a bit stunned that a company from Traverse City took the title," says Wehr. "To us, it was just an example of the kind of award-winning work we produce for our clients everyday. And, to say we felt quite honored is an understatement."
While Oneupweb may have been seen as the underdog, you can bet no one will make that mistake again. True to their mantra: Be Relentless™, Wehr and her team are already looking to top the evening's performance.
