ITSMA Announces Finalists for the 2016 Marketing Excellence Awards
Leading technology, telecom, and professional services firms will be honored at ITSMA's 2016 Marketing Vision Conference for creating standout marketing programs for B2B services and solutions
The program honors the marketing programs, campaigns, and new initiatives that have demonstrated superior performance in the four most critical aspects of marketing success: strategy and planning, innovation, execution, and business results. The program focuses exclusively on marketing for B2B services and solutions, and highlights the most important dimensions of a strategic, comprehensive approach to marketing.
"I continue to be amazed by the quality of the submissions that we receive and the results that these marketers are delivering for their companies. The competition for this year's program is deeper than it's ever been, but this year's finalists really separated themselves from the pack," said Dave Munn, President and CEO of ITSMA.
