Two Years in a row for Pro-Ad at the Institute of Promotional Marketing Cogs Awards

Morpeth company Pro-Ad has won a silver award for promotional merchandise campaign of the year at the prestigious 2018 Institute of Promotional Marketing (IPM) ‘COGS’ Awards.

The award follows on from Pro-Ad’s success in the 2017 awards, in which the promotional merchandising solutions provider took home both gold and silver accolades.

COGS awards highlight the significant impact and business contributions made by companies like Pro-Ad, which specialises in providing merchandise and marketing support for all types of promotional campaigns.

Pro-Ad scooped its latest prize for its work to design and produce a promotional pack to support energy provider SSE’s health and wellbeing campaign. The pack included a branded gym bag, runner’s recovery pack and a bespoke notebook which encouraged users to record their daily step count, water intake, amount of sleep and promoted SSE’s mental health awareness message by encouraging people to talk. Pro-Ad delivered the pre – prepared packs to over 50 sites nationwide. Nearly 5,000 SSE employees took part in the campaign.

Pro-Ad’s Chairman, Carlo Nardini, commented: “We are delighted to be prize winners for the second year in a row at the IPM COGS awards. It’s fantastic that our team continues to be recognised for their excellent work to provide our clients with the best quality of service and innovative promotional merchandise solutions tailored to their needs.

We want to keep improving our services and with this latest award we look forward to representing the best of North-East businesses both here in the UK and further afield.”

The IPM COGS 2018 awards ceremony was held on Friday 28th September at the prestigious London St Pancras Renaissance Hotel.
