Oh, What A Night!

What a night for marketers! SMPS New York’s recent Annual Meeting and Liberty Ball brought it all—a recap of the many, many successes the chapter realized this year, fun conversations in networking break-outs, incredibly impressive (and hilarious) videos, and even a bartending lesson. But perhaps more importantly, this event and awards program gave the NYC marketing community a chance to celebrate each other and get a taste of the amazing work we’ve all been doing. 

All of us who attended were thoroughly impressed, not only with the award-winning submissions, but the creativity and determination these marketers have shown to remain flexible and cutting-edge in the most unusual of circumstances this year.

The Marketing Communications Award winners knocked it out of the park with their unique takes on marketing in a largely virtual world. The winners of the Professional Achievement Awards might be even more impressive! These marketing pros made the most of a challenging year (and in some cases, career!) to embrace and leverage challenges that helped make our industry and this chapter even stronger.  See all of our winners below!

As the premier sponsor of the SMPS NY Liberty Ball, we at STO Building Group kind of had a hunch this would be an impressive night. While some of our marketing team members are active in SMPS, others aren’t as involved or are brand-new to the industry. This event was an excellent opportunity show those newer folks what AEC marketing is all about—the creativity we share, the fun we have with our areas of expertise, and the network of peers that SMPS creates. The images of our colleague and chapter president, Andrew Weinberg, “dancing” along in his special video tribute will stay with us forever (haha!). And our fearless leader of marketing at STOBG, Rebecca Leonardis, won the Vanguard of the Year Award, which gave us all the more reason to celebrate together and with the entire SMPS NY community.

A huge congratulations to the night’s winners and to SMPS New York for an excellent event. At STOBG, we even recruited a few new members, thanks to the fun—that sounds like a win for everyone!

CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF OUR WINNERS!!!
