Marketing excellence in the construction sector was recognised last night at the 12th annual Construction Marketing Awards, with Knauf scooping Marketing Team of the Year.
Kimberley Workman of Pickerings Lifts was awarded the Young Marketer of the Year award, with CFA taking the Agency of the Year accolade.
In addition, Michael Ankers OBE, who recently retired as Construction Products Association chief executive, was honoured with a Special Award commemorating his long history of contribution to marketing in the construction sector.
Run by the Chartered Institute of Marketing Construction Industry Group, the awards recognise and celebrate the best and most innovative marketing campaigns in the construction industry year.
CIMCIG chairman Ian Exall summed up his reaction to this year’s Construction Marketing Awards: “The creativity and innovation shown by our marketers in the toughest times we have worked in is remarkable. Once again they have shown that quality marketing produces excellent investment return no matter what the economy is doing.”
In 2012 there was a record entry, a contrast to the constrained time the industry is feeling, but testament to the innovation and creativity of the construction marketing community. The boom was also felt at the awards dinner, which was the largest in the history of the awards.
