Businesses the length and breadth of Cork received recognition for their digital marketing strategies this afternoon, as Cork Chamber awarded the winners of the hotly contested Cork Digital Marketing Awards 2020.
Best use of Facebook and Twitter, best content creation and best social media campaign were some of the accolades up for grabs.
The awards, presented by Sinéad Kennedy on Zoom, recognised the responsive, strategic and creative approaches that businesses are bringing to all digital platforms.
Commenting on the awards Paula Cogan, Cork Chamber President said: “In a year like no other, digital skills have come to the fore, and today it is a pleasure to recognise the pivotal work delivered by digital marketing teams. As businesses reshaped their operations, digital channels became central to keeping companies and brands connected with their loyal customer base, and to expanding their reach.
"This year, in particular, we have seen how resilience coupled with creativity and expertise has shaped some very successful projects and campaigns. We have much to reflect on and celebrate today.”
The Montenotte Hotel was declared as Cork’s overall Digital Transformer 2020.
On receiving the award, Brian Bowler, General Manager of The Montenotte Hotel said that they were delighted to win the prestigious award.
“The world of Digital Marketing has never been more important to not just ours but to every industry. We are fortunate to have a Hotel that is full of features and personality which gives us lots of opportunities to be present across our digital platforms.
“Our Sales & Marketing Team are very innovative and technically strong and have harnessed our digital platforms and content to build brand awareness, build relationships and engage with potential future guests and past visitors of The Montenotte. I am delighted that our team and their excellent work in the area of Digital Marketing is being recognised with this accolade,” he added.
The Cork Digital Marketing Awards are organised by Cork Chamber to provide a platform for Cork businesses to showcase their recent digital successes and achievements.
