Karbo Communications, a digital marketing and PR agency, announced that it has won a Bronze Stevie Award for Public Relations Agency of the Year.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word meaning “crowned,” the American Business Awards are the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations—public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.
More than 3,700 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Marketing Campaign of the Year, Live Event of the Year and App of the Year.
Karbo Com enjoyed a record year in 2017, with numerous coverage wins in the augmented reality, IIoT, cloud computing and sensor spaces, among others. The agency earned praise from the judging panel for its “great year and impressive accomplishments,” “very interesting work in the tech space” and “use of data, analytics and effective communication techniques.”
“It’s a tremendous honor to stand among such accomplished agencies,” said Julie Karbo, CEO of Karbo Communications. “We know how much work it takes to implement a PR program that drives sales and moves the needle for clients. Each of our fellow nominees should be proud of their efforts in the last year. We certainly are.”
More than 200 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.
“The nominations submitted for The 2018 American Business Awards were outstanding. The competition was intense, and those recognized as Stevie Award winners should be immensely proud of this accomplishment,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards.
