“The ERA Moxie Awards is the perfect name for our awards program,” said Julie Coons, ERA’s president and CEO.
Arlington, VA (PRWEB) July 15, 2010
The Electronic Retailing Association (ERA) is pleased to announce a new name of the ERA Annual Awards—the ERA Moxie Awards. This is the premier awards program for the direct response (DR) marketing industry where the best in television, radio, online and mobile DR campaigns are recognized across more than 30 categories.
The new name provides the awards program with its own identity, separate from both ERA—the producer of the awards program—and the ERA D2C Convention, where the winners of the awards program are announced at a gala at the conclusion of the event.
“The ERA Moxie Awards is the perfect name for our awards program,” said Julie Coons, ERA’s president and CEO. “I believe that the new name and logo will further enhance the value of the awards program and provide additional credibility to the power and success of DR as an accountable and sophisticated marketing method.”
The word “moxie” suggests energy, initiative, determination, skill and the ability to face challenges with spirit and courage—all characteristics that embody the DR marketing industry. ERA worked with acclaimed advertising agency, Frank Strategic Marketing, to create the new name and logo and also received feedback from ERA members including sponsors of the awards gala.
Winners of the awards will be announced at the ERA Moxie Awards Gala on September 23, 2010 at the 2010 ERA D2C Convention at the Wynn Las Vegas. To learn more about the gala and purchase tickets to attend, visit D2Cshow.org.
