At the end of every conference comes the onslaught of obligatory summary posts of the top takeaways from the day. You can learn about all the best speakers, who had the most creative slides and catch some great summaries of the more intricate details of the presentations. But this time I thought I’d write something ...
Earlier this summer we were announced as finalists in the Wirehive100 Awards - One to Watch category and on Thursday 13th it was time for the team to scrub up, get into our black-tie garb and head on down to the fantastic venue for the awards ceremony, which was Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge.
We were greeted on arrival with champagne and given time to admire the motors and network with our fellow nominees, including our friends at Farm Digital Ltd who were also nominated for One to Watch and Most Efficient.
After enough time to settle we were invited to be seated for dinner and our party of four joined some of the Rawnet team who were nominated for four awards including Most Respected, and Fast Growth. During dinner we were treated to some table magic as well as the amazing Miss Balloniverse, who made a spiderman balloon for our table.
After a yummy dinner our M.C. for the evening, comedian Russell Kane took to the stage to get us all giggling in advance of the awards. Our table-mates Rawnet were highly commended for one of their awards and scooped the award for Best Tech.
We won our Award (One to Watch), which was awarded to the agency under four years old that is punching above their weight in terms of client wins and media coverage. Our friends at Farm were highly commended and Russell Kane stressed that this was the most difficult decision for the judging committee. We were also delighted to be ranked 46th in the Wirehive100 League Table, (based on turnover excluding PPC).
We'd like to extend our congratulations to all the winners and runners-up. In particular we would like to thank Wirehive, who planned and executed a truly classy event which really succeeded in highlighting the digital talent in the South East outside of London.
