Brewers Receive National Sports Forum ADchievement Overall Award of Excellence
Greetings from Portland, Oregon where I’m here with some of my colleagues attending the National Sports Forum (NSF).
Today I am pleased to share that the Brewers were selected as the recipient of the 2016 National Sports Forum ADchievement Overall Award of Excellence. The announcement was made this during the NSF awards ceremony this morning. This marks the fifth consecutive season that the Brewers have received this award.
“We are incredibly proud to bring home the ADchievement Overall Award of Excellence for the fifth straight year,” said Teddy Werner, Brewers vice president – marketing and business development. “We faced very stiff competition and I would like to congratulate our entire marketing team for their passion, creativity and commitment to make us the best in the industry.”
The NSF ADchievement Awards recognize the year’s most outstanding advertising campaigns in sports. The competition brings in hundreds of submissions from the top teams, agencies, leagues and collegiate athletics across the industry.
2/17/16 Update: At last night’s closing ceremonies of the National Sports Forum, the winner of this year’s SAMMY Award (Sales, Advertising, Marketing or Management Idea of the Year) was announced and I’m pleased to share that we were the winners of that award, too. This is the second time that we won the SAMMY and this year’s award was for our Timeless Ticket idea. Kathy Schwab, our Senior Director of Marketing, had presented the idea in a session earlier that day and accepted the award on our behalf:
The competition was fierce and, as we’re headed back from Portland today with the two awards in tow, I feel so very honored to be a part of this special group of very talented people.
The National Sports Forum is the largest annual cross gathering of the top sports marketing, sales, promotions and event entertainment executives from throughout the broad spectrum of teams and leagues, (i.e. MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL, MLS, Minor Leagues, Racing, Colleges, etc.) in North America.
