Hill & Partners Awarded by EDPA for Marketing and Design Excellence
Attending the Exhibit Designers and Producers Association’s (EDPA) ACCESS Conference is always a great opportunity to catch up with industry peers, learn about the exciting emerging trends in exhibit design and of course, get dressed up to celebrate all our accomplishments at the awards presentation.
One of the awards, the EDDIE Award, is presented to an exhibit house or industry supplier that demonstrates excellence in promoting their company to exhibitors and others in the industry and just happened to coincide with Hill & Partners Twenty Years anniversary campaign.
As the Marketing Manager for Hill & Partners, I knew that our Twenty Years campaign was extraordinary, not just due to the success we saw across the board in performance of return on printed ads, blogs and online content but because of the truly collaborative effort made by our design and marketing teams.
The campaign, spearheaded by lead designer Josh Terceira, leveraged the twenty years milestone for all marketing efforts throughout the year and was also able to communicate the success and growth Hill & Partners has experienced over the past two decades to solidify our place as an industry leader. The momentous occasion culminated in a celebration aboard a Boston Harbor cruise alongside over one hundred clients, partners and friends for a night of food, music and reminiscing.
Sitting amongst the trade show world’s top industry professionals at the awards ceremony, I felt the anticipation in the room as the presenters took their places at the podium. I took a moment to reflect back on the Twenty Years campaign and feel gratitude for all the hard work put in by our team.
Our name was called and the adrenaline kicked in as I walked to the stage, effectively short-circuiting my brain. The immediate thought that flashed through my mind was that I wished my team were up on stage with me! While I fumbled through an acceptance speech, I made sure to pay homage to Josh and all of his hard work. I was beyond honored to accept such a prestigious award on behalf of our design and marketing department in front of our much-respected peers. It is our collaborative effort that has propelled Hill & Partners to where we are today.
