Last night the team here at Rare Creative Group took a train across the Pennines to Manchester for this year's MINetwork Awards. And we're delighted to say that the journey was well worth it!
We went home feeling very pleased with ourselves last night after winning a Commendation for Integrated Agency of the Year at the event, as well as being shortlisted for Best Customer Insight for our work with Planitherm Glass.
Rare was one of two agencies commended in what was described as a very close category.
Over the last year, we've worked very hard on producing high impact campaigns for our clients in the built environment sectors and have achieved some amazing results, making this recognition very rewarding for the team here.
In its fourth year, the awards are organised by MINetwork, the networking, live events, training and business development arm of The Drum magazine, so it was great to get the thumbs up from this industry expert.
The award ceremony took place at the Mercure Hotel in central Manchester. The MiAwards aim to identify and highlight the very best in marketing, media and communications agencies, teams and individuals working right across the UK.
The evening started with a drinks reception and following dinner we were entertained by rapping comedian Doc Brown, who had everyone in stitches. The drinks, meal and entertainment all helped to ease us nicely into the award announcements ahead.
We were up against some very large agencies and high profile campaigns, it's fair to say we were all delighted with the result. Director Steve Beaumont and Senior Designer Paul Mellor took to the stage with wide smiles to collect our certificate, which was swiftly followed by us popping champagne corks at our table!
It was a great evening, and with the B2B awards ahead next week, we are feeling confident we'll get some more good results there too.
