Best of Show

By Shawn Kelley | SVP, Executive Creative Director

The Charlotte chapter of the American Advertising Federation honored HMH with the highest accolade at the annual ADDY Awards, which celebrate the best marketing and advertising in the Charlotte area. In addition to leaving the awards ceremony with an armful of gold and silver level awards, the HMH team also walked away with the coveted Best of Show award for their work on the Savannah Airport Takeover for Palmetto Bluff, a property of Crescent Communities.

Through this experiential marketing campaign, travelers arriving at the Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport are reminded just how close they are to the Lowcountry resort and community, Palmetto Bluff. The in-airport tactics, including messaging printed on baggage claim belts, back-lit displays and airport walls, suggest many of the things visitors can do at Palmetto Bluff and invite them to stop by for a while, have a Lowcountry adventure, or stay a bit longer and make Palmetto Bluff their home.

It was great to celebrate all the award-winning work with the Charlotte ad community at the ADDYs. And it was great to take home the Best of Show.

Congratulations to everyone at HMH who worked on these award-winning ideas.
