"We received impressive entries, which made it all the more difficult to select winners," said Fran Brasseux, executive vice president of HSMAI. "But in the end, the ones who were selected as Gold winners always brought a little something extra to the table, whether it was by mobilizing engaged consumers to turn them into brand ambassadors, or by harnessing emerging technology to tell the story in a new and compelling way. The people behind these entries truly are travel marketing super heroes."
At the Adrian Awards Dinner Reception, co-sponsored by HSMAI, Google, and TravelClick, Gold winners' submissions will be showcased on digital displays and honored during the dinner reception. Winners of the Gold Adrian Awards are considered for Platinum Adrian Awards and the "Best of Show" Awards, the Adrian Awards' highest honor. Both Awards will be announced on stage in the Broadway Ballroom at the Adrian Awards Gala on Tuesday, February 20.
