Industry Excellence Awards at the 2011 ‘Search Starts Here’ Conference
April 18, 2011 | Contributed by: Stephanie Hobbs
It’s always a pleasure to honor colleagues and peers who’ve done incredibly innovative work in our industry, but last evening’s Industry Excellence Awards ceremony was particularly special. As the local search field continues to develop and change, this year’s winners are developing new and creative approaches to conducting business that are contributing to our industry’s rapid advancement, expansion and evolution.
In recent years, our industry has transformed itself into a champion of the local search experience, harnessing the wealth of local business information both in print and online, offering the ease of wireless technology and utilizing the connectivity of social media. This year’s winners exemplify that experience.
Highlights from the awards ceremony include:
- SuperMedia was awarded the Mobile Platform Award for its EveryCarListed.com® iPhone/iTouch application
- Valley Yellow Pages took home the Community Service Award for its “Buy Local” campaign
- Yellow Pages Group received the Rich Media Display Ad Award for its digital interactive consumer campaign
Other companies recognized include AT&T Interactive, Berry, DAC Group and 15Miles. In addition, Dex One and Yellowbook were presented with the Local Search Association National Marketing Division 2010 Publisher Partnership Award for programs including a monthly Webinar series for clients that highlight new products and services and a unique approach to search engine marketing.
