MMGY GLOBAL AND PARTNERS TAKE HOME BEST OF SHOW AT HSMAI ADRIAN AWARDS GALA

Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) honored MMGY Global with its highest accolades last night at its annual gala, with MMGY NJF winning the big award, Best of Show, for its Owning an Entire News Cycle: D-Day with The National WWII Museum campaign. This award is considered the top prize, and we couldn’t be more honored and proud to be recognized for all of our hard work.

The Adrian Awards is the largest and most prestigious global travel marketing competition, recognizing excellence in advertising, marketing and public relations. MMGY Global took home a total of 40 awards, including five Platinum awards from MMGY Myriad and MMGY NJF, and 17 Gold awards across agency brands. MMGY NJF was also given the first-ever HSMAI Foundation Talent and Leadership Development award.

“I am incredibly proud of the work that our team and client partners have been recognized for this year by our industry peers,” said MMGY Global President Katie Briscoe. “While these awards are the culmination of so much hard work, what continues to be most rewarding are the results we have helped deliver to our clients and the business impact we continue to see take shape. These campaigns are helping to rebuild economies, shine a spotlight on important social issues, keep history alive and so much more.”

Congratulations to our partners for receiving this recognition!
