D – It is the final sprint for the Promotional Gift Award 2019: The entry deadline for the communication prize organised by the Cologne-based publishing company, WA Media, ends on November 30, 2018. Anyone, who wants to submit a product or a campaign to the coveted award for haptic advertising, should fill out the application form as soon as possible and bring the submitted item to the post office.
Then, the expert jury comprising of seven members will meet up on December 10 and 11 to examine all the entries. Together the experts – including the three marketing professionals from famous companies Ulrike Müßigbrodt (Henkel), Nadja Trumm (Volkswagen Zubehör) and Jürgen Zimmer (Mast-Jägermeister) will decide which products and haptic advertising campaigns will be presented with the renowned distinction in 2019.
The Promotional Gift Award has been conferred to innovative and promotionally impacting giveaways, mailing boosters, premium products, merchandising items and custom-made products as well as whole campaigns which promotional products play a role in since 2003. Tribute will be paid to all of the award-winning products of the Promotional Gift Award 2019 in the form of a special exhibition at the HAPTICA® live ’19, staged at the World Conference Centre Bonn on March 20, 2019. This is also where the official award ceremony will take place. Furthermore, the editorial coverage in the trade publications eppi magazine, Werbeartikel Nachrichten, Promotion Products and HAPTICA® will attract high-reach publicity.
