Las Vegas may be called Sin City, but after my last visit, I may start calling it Win City. On October 23, I had the pleasure of representing Kenshoo along with my colleague, Nate Luman, at the inaugural U.S. Search Awards that took place during Pubcon.

Nearly 200 of the best and brightest digital marketers gathered at Treasure Island hoping to take home their own gold in one of the 22 categories designed to recognize tech companies, agencies, and individuals in the search marketing industry.

Kenshoo had the honor of being shortlisted in 4 different categories and the even greater honor of being recognized as winners in 2 of those categories — Best Local Campaign and Best PPC Management Platform.

We share the Local award with our partner, SIM Partners for the success seen by Sonus Hearing Care Professionals with Kenshoo Local and Velocity.

It was great to see so many other Kenshoo clients and partners recognized as finalists and winners, including, Covario, Elite SEM, GearyLSF, Havas, Performics, and Resolution Media. The common theme reiterated throughout the night was about the high caliber of entries so kudos to all — it’s an exciting time to be a digital marketer!

I left the ceremony with 2 awards for Kenshoo, a great photobooth picture, and new inspiration from the innovative and passionate marketers around me. See you next year!
