Apollo wins B&T’s Promotional Agency of the Year

Apollo Marketing has capped off a year of strong growth and multiple awards by winning B&T’s Promotional Agency of the Year for 2011. This is the second year running that the trans-Tasman agency has won this award, beating fierce competition from other Australian and New Zealand agencies.

“I am so incredibly proud of the year that Apollo has had, and to win at the B&T Awards tops it off perfectly,” said Ruth Money, managing director of Apollo. “We’ve maintained our momentum from last year to keep building our team, our clients and the calibre of our work throughout 2011 and it’s fantastic to see this recognised by the industry.”

“We really feel like we excelled across the board this year. While we won 23 new clients and doubled the number of brands we work on in 2011, we also managed to retain all our key clients. Importantly our staff retention was also exceptional at over 90 percent.”

Apollo has offices in Auckland, Sydney and Melbourne. Stand out campaigns for 2011 include Mainland’s Taste the Difference of Time, a completely integrated campaign encompassing online, an experiential roadshow, in-store and point-of-sale activity and trade communication and VB’s Summer of Cricket.

Throughout 2011, Apollo added seven APMA Star Awards to their already bulging trophy cabinet, a Pride in Print Award, and a Distinguished Honouree medal at the 2011 International Business Awards.

Apollo founder and Aegis Media Pacific managing director of activations, Will Riley, said: “This latest award is a great way to end a terrific year for Apollo and our clients. We’ll keep building on our success to hopefully have an even bigger year in 2012.”

Apollo’s clients include Vodafone, Smith’s, Pernod Ricard, Subaru, DB Breweries, Sara Lee, Kellogg’s, Kimberly Clark and Coca-Cola.
