Kent-based PR and Marketing Agency Fusion Media has picked up a prestigious Exhibition News (EN) Award for its highly regarded work on SALTEX – the UK’s largest groundscare exhibition.
Fusion Media has been working on a wide variety of PR and marketing projects for SALTEX since 2015 and has been integral to the success of the show.
Off the back of a record-breaking attendance at SALTEX 2019, the Grounds Management Association (GMA), Fusion Media and Events For You (sales team), were shortlisted for the Best Commercial/Association Partnership at the EN Awards. Fusion Media was also recognised and shortlisted for the Best Trade Show Marketing Campaign Award.
The EN Awards brought together in London, 30 July, more than 600 industry players for an evening of celebration. Hosted by UK comedian Tom Allen, the awards recognised those who had made an impact to a wide variety of shows throughout the world as well as those making a difference in how the events industry operates.
As well as picking up the Best Commercial/Association Partnership, Fusion Media made it to the final two of the Best Trade Show Marketing Campaign Award but narrowly missed out to the Dubai based INDEX show.
Commenting on the award, Fusion Media’s Managing Director Christopher Bassett said: “It is fantastic to win this award. SALTEX is a year-round project and one that the whole of the Fusion team is dedicated to and work incredibly hard on.
“Over the years we have formed a great strategic partnership with the GMA and Events For You – which has proved to be of great benefit to SALTEX. It is very fitting that the names of all three companies are engraved on this prestigious award.
“The EN Awards also signal the return of exhibitions and live events,” continued Chris. “It has been a long-time coming, but we are now focused on preparing for SALTEX’s 75th anniversary at the NEC, Birmingham on November 3 and 4. We’ll be doing everything we can to make it a huge success and one to remember for years to come.”
