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.
