We won the Gold and Silver Award at the 2017 IPM COGS Awards!
The Pro-Ad team is buzzing with excitement as we were the winners of not one but two awards-Gold and Silver- in the Promotional Merchandise category, at the IPM COGS Awards 2017. The COGS Awards are highly recognised by the biggest promotional marketing companies in the UK. The awards were launched by the Institute of Promotional Marketing to recognise the huge contribution made by marketing services providers to the success of promotional campaigns.
Pro-Ad won the Gold Award for our work in producing Bespoke Colour Coated Computer Mice for industrial paints company AkzoNobel. AkzoNobel were opening a new office in Amsterdam and wanted to supply each member of staff with a special corporate gift. A wireless mouse that would have been coated with their Speciality Coatings paints. We created a memorable gift that helped Akzo Nobel engage their staff with their Colour of the Year whilst celebrating their new premises. Watch more about this project here.
The Silver Award went to Pro-Ad for our SSE Vulnerability Packs project. SSE requested our help in putting together 12,000 vulnerability packs that would be used to support their vulnerable customers that live in remote areas, in the occasion of a power cut during storms. Pro-Ad sourced for SSE a range of branded products that were of the highest quality to achieve the campaign goals. The packs were also pre-packed by Pro-Ad into boxes carrying the SSE branding.
Our Managing Director, Carlo Nardini, commented: “We are delighted to have won the Gold and Silver awards at the IPM COGS Awards 2017,especially as we were competing against campaigns for popular brands with an international presence. The awards come as a great recognition of our team and their efforts in providing our clients with the best quality of service and innovative promotional merchandise solutions. We endeavour to keep improving our services even further and to add more significant awards to our collection.”
