Awards season might just be our favorite season! We’re lucky to have such amazing clients to work with and couldn’t be more thrilled when they’re recognized for their work.

This year, we’re excited to announce several of our clients took home big wins at last week’s HSMAI Adrian Awards gala in New York City. The Adrian Awards recognizes members of the travel and tourism industry for their creativity and innovation in advertising, digital marketing and public relations.

Without further ado, here are the 2018 Adrian Award winners ...

Irving Convention Center and Visitors Bureau also took home a Gold award in the Digital Marketing category for its website design. In 2016, the CVB launched a rebrand of its site, drawing inspiration from the unusual architecture, vibrant colors, and use of unique materials and finishes of its building.

Visit Oakland’s site was a winner in the Digital Marketing category, claiming the Silver award for their “pretty and gritty” website. The DMOs design was sparked by the desire to shed the destination’s rough reputation and replace it with an image of modern revitalization, one that would have visitors “experience the new Oakland.”

Last but not least, Visit Salt Lake was awarded a Bronze award for its website design, which was created in an effort to break the stigma that Salt Lake City isn’t only a winter destination. In doing so, the DMO highlighted a myriad of spring, summer and fall outdoor activities visitors can experience in Salt Lake City … without the snow.

A big congratulations to all of our winners and the teams that worked to create these beautiful websites!
