The shortlist was recently revealed and we are in the running for the ‘Best Agency’ and ‘Best Technology Innovation’ accolades.
Considered the most prestigious digital awards in Ireland, the Digital Media Awards recognise the best in digital advertising and marketing, as well as: content creation; social networking; mobile media; app development; and web design.
The winners will be revealed at a gala dinner taking place in February in Dublin. The event will be hosted by Tom Dunne from Newstalk, Ireland’s national independent talk radio broadcaster.
The Best Agency category celebrates agencies using digital and traditional media channels to excite, enthuse and inspire. Nominees are judged on the overall quality of their work, the technology and its design, the strategies and campaigns devised to achieve objectives as well as ROI.
In recognition of businesses which have implemented or developed ground-breaking technology, the Best Technology Innovation category is judged on the uniqueness and creativity of innovations that have driven improved user experience.
Our booking platform, Allora, is the world’s first direct booking engine powered by artificial intelligence and its technology (which has already been recognised in a number of awards ceremonies) is supported by an experienced team of digital marketing, revenue and web design experts. In 2018, Avvio was recognised by Google in the top three per cent of digital agencies across the EMEA region.
Last year we achieved significant success in the Irish hospitality market as the booking engine supplier to the highest market share of luxury hotels in the country. Our shortlisting in the Digital Media Awards is another indication of our growing prominence across the country.
Frank Reeves, co-founder and CEO of Avvio, said:
“It’s fantastic to have been nominated in two categories in this year’s Digital Media Awards and the shortlisting really is a reflection of Avvio’s expertise in the digital arena.
“We have an incredible team which is driven by delivering state-of-the-art websites and digital campaigns that ensure an easy and personalised user experience at every touch point.
“Avvio creates impressive digital experiences for our hotel customers and their guests that integrate seamlessly with our booking technology and this, coupled with our focus on and expertise in data analytics, has empowered us to expect revenue increases of at least 25 per cent for the hotels we work with.”
The Digital Media Awards is now in its 14th year and will be held at the Clayton Hotel in Dublin on Friday 15th February 2019.
