This evening we will be sponsoring the annual Canmol Wales Marketing Awards at Cardiff City Stadium.


The awards celebrate some of the very best marketing activity going on in Wales at the moment. “Canmol” (Welsh for praise) has rewarded some fantastic Welsh marketing work over the years across businesses of all shapes and sizes, from sole traders with budgets amounting to less than £200 right up to multinational companies.


Last year two of our clients – S4C and Arriva Trains Wales – received nominations and subsequently won in their respective categories. S4C won in the “arts, heritage and creative industries” category for work undertaken promoting the drama series Y Gwyll, while Arriva Trains Wales came out on top for best “tourism, hotels, leisure, place & destination marketing” in their “Make me Smile” campaign.


Having played an integral part in the marketing in both the “Make me Smile” campaign and in promoting “Y Gwyll” we were overjoyed to share in their success at the awards this time last year and are therefore very excited to be headline sponsors of the awards this evening.


We would like to extend our best wishes to all those attending this evening and to wish all those nominated the very best of luck – You all deserve it! Come back to our blog next week for all the fall out (and gossip) from the awards.
