Over the years we’ve been no stranger to the Mobile Entertainment Awards, usually sitting with clients and cheering them on as they pick up awards or purely for the fun of the evening and the valuable networking it provides. This year was a different story though. This year there was a PR award at stake.
It’s the first time that Mobile Entertainment introduced the ‘Best PR Agency’ category in the awards and we’re absolutely delighted to have scooped the big prize last night and be crowned the Best PR agency!
The award was made extra special by the fact that winners were decided by industry voters, not just one or two influential people. It’s a fantastic feeling and the team here is absolutely humbled to have won it.
Although our acceptance speech was short and sweet (rabbit in the headlights springs to mind), we wanted to take more time today to deliver something a little more comprehensive and thought out.
Firstly, it’s fantastic that Mobile Entertainment has recognised the role that PR agencies play in the industry, in connecting them to companies, people and relevant and bespoke content. It was an absolute honour to share the room with so many influential industry people, let alone the stage.
It’s also important to recognise the other agencies we were up against as there was some fantastic talent in the room, delivering brilliant work across the board and helping to ensure UK PR agencies have a great reputation in mobile.
Last, but by no means least, without the amazing clients we have in the sector, we simply wouldn’t be able to do the work we do. They are the reason we get up in the morning and they’re the reason why we’ll continue to deliver the best results possible. The mobile industry moves at an incredible pace and if you take your eye off the ball, even for a second, you’re likely to miss something.
It’s incredibly cliché to say this but hopefully you’ll forgive me this time when I say that here at Speed we live and breathe mobile. It’s what we do. It’s who we are. If you share our passion for mobile and want to talk more about how PR would be able to help your business, we’d love to chat over a cup of tea.
P.S. If you haven’t seen the video from the awards last night, it’s well worth a watch.
