D – The time has come round again: With immediate effect, international promotional products manufacturers, importers and distributors, designers, agencies and promoting companies can register their creative output in the field of haptic advertising for the Promotional Gift Award 2017. The Promotional Gift Award has been distinguishing outstanding performances in the haptic advertising sector since 2003. It serves as a benchmark across the market, ensures the award winners publicity and underlines their innovative strength and creativity to customers, business partners and competitors as well as within their own companies.
In time for the start of this year’s competition, the organisers, WA Media have completely revamped the website: The site offers interested parties detailed information on the Promotional Gift Award, the application form, impressions and award-winning products of former years and answers to all questions regarding a participation in the award.
The Promotional Gift Award is conferred in eight categories in total: Give-aways, Communicative Products, Premium Products & Brand Articles, Best Practice, Custom-made Designs, Merchandising, Packaging and Customising Technologies. The entry deadline is November 10, 2016. Companies that register their product or campaign by September 30, 2016, can profit from the early bird rate: Then, the participation costs only 180 Euros, the regular fee is 220 Euros. The Promotional Gift Award 2017 will be presented at the HAPTICA® live’17 on March 22, 2017 in the World Conference Center Bonn, where all award-winning products will be showcased in an own exhibition.
