1EM Shortlisted for Marketing Minds Awards

1 Events Media, the Blackburn based host of North West business networking events, trade exhibitions and awards has been shortlisted as a finalist in the 2016 Marketing Minds Awards, which will be held on Thursday 21st April at Cranage Hall in Cheshire.

The company, which itself hosts the annual E3 Business Awards and a busy programme of business-to-business networking events, was named one of four finalists in the category of ‘Integrated Campaign of the Year’. 1EM’s nomination centred upon its marketing of last year’s E3 Business Awards and a multi-channel campaign that utilised both conventional and digital media.

Reacting to the announcement, the company’s managing director, Mubarak Chati said: “It’s an unexpected pleasure to be named as a finalist in these awards. We’re normally very busy organising and promoting awards of our own so to see things from the perspective of the nominee is fascinating and, of course, extremely gratifying. A lot of hard work and planning goes into each year’s activity and this nomination is an heartening acknowledgement of that. The whole team is delighted that its work has attracted the notice of some of the region’s sharpest marketing minds.”

The inaugural Marketing Minds Awards are designed to celebrate the very best the of the North West’s thriving marketing sector and will take place alongside a major conference featuring eight experienced speakers. Amongst others, topics include brand-building, innovation on a budget, social trends and exploiting international markets.
