Last month, we proudly announced our partnership with Event Marketer to sponsor the first ever Brand Ambassadors of the Year awards. Shiftgig’s goal with this award is to recognize the importance of brand ambassadors to a company’s success, given these statistics:
- Nearly 7 in 10 marketers believe Experiential Marketing is effective
- Last year, 65% of brands saw a positive correlation between in-person events and sales
- 79% of brands reported they would create more events in the near future
Nominations came in across the industry, recognizing outstanding brand ambassadors for their hard work. The judges reviewed all of the nominations and made the difficult decision of choosing which brand ambassadors made the final cut. With the event now just a few days away, we’re excited to announce the 10 individuals named Brand Ambassadors of the Year. Drum roll, please...
