The Business Eye Small Business Awards were recently held at Crowne Plaza Hotel, Belfast where we were honoured to walk away with the Small Business Marketing Award 2018.
The Award was for the marketing campaign surrounding Invent 2017, spanning the initial search for candidates through to coverage of the key milestones and onwards to spreading the word about the Invent Gala Dinner which saw over 670 esteemed guests in attendance this year. Every year, Invent showcases and rewards Northern Ireland’s innovations and proof-of-concept ideas with the greatest commercial potential. The competition is led by our Programme Manager Kerry McGarvey.
Upon receiving the award, Tierna Byrne (Catalyst Inc Marketing Executive) commented:
“It was an incredibly proud moment to accept the Business Marketing Award on behalf of Catalyst Inc. Invent was the first major campaign I worked on since joining Catalyst Inc over two years ago and it is humbling to watch the entrepreneurs go from strength to strength over the course of the competition. I loved every moment of working on last year’s marketing campaign as it spanned everything from social media and traditional press through to video content, graphic design and photography.”
A huge well done goes to Invent Programme Manager Kerry Mc Garvey for her incredible work on making the awards dinner a reality and to Tierna Byrne for leading the Invent Marketing campaign. Invent wouldn't be possible without the help of our wider team here at Catalyst Inc.
