CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR 2018 MARKETER OF THE YEAR
We are proud to announce that Destination BC has earned this year’s prestigious title of BCAMA’s Marketer of the Year.
Destination BC’s 2018 Marketer of the Year submission centred on the organization’s journey of transformation, one that has expertly navigated the challenges of a highly competitive industry continually disrupted by changes in technology and rising consumer demands.
Congratulations Destination BC for earning this prestigious honour.
About The Marketer Of The Year Awards Gala
The BCAMA’s annual Marketer of the Year (MOY) awards gala is one of the most anticipated industry events in British Columbia. What makes this flagship event so appealing and unique as compared to other awards shows is that it is comprised of two distinct elements:
1. Marketer of the Year
A formalized recognition of one well-deserving organization that is honoured for its results-oriented, marketing prowess—through strategic planning and creative executions.
2. Marketing Excellence Awards
A collection of individual awards celebrating marketing excellence in each of six different categories. The winner of each award is announced as part of the gala event.
Early bird tickets now available
With us breaking with tradition by choosing to host the event in February, rather than in October or November, we've experienced far more inquiries and requests for tickets than in any previous year in recent memory.
So be sure to reserve your place early.
