(BRUSSELS, BELGIUM AND REDWOOD CITY, CA), MAY 26, 2016 - Selligent, the world's leading independent provider of 1-to-1 engagement solutions for relationship marketers, announced the winners of the 4th annual Selligent Awards, celebrating the most innovative and effective client campaigns powered by Selligent’s omnichannel marketing platform. Award winners were announced at the European client and partner summit, which took place from May 18 to 20 in Lisbon, Portugal, with more than 235 attendees including leading consumer brands from countries across Europe and the US.

 

Selligent clients were invited to submit case studies for the awards in nine categories that embody various aspects of a consumer-first approach to relationship marketing. Selligent also announced three headline awards for Partner of the Year, Consumer First and Campaign of the Year, which was awarded to MyWay, the leading Belgian chain of pre-owned car dealerships. The MyWay campaign featured funny viral tools for students leaving for university to “e-blackmail” their parents into buying them a car, creating engagement with these two key groups of consumers during their purchase decision process.  The City of Lyon, France won the Consumer-First Marketing Award as well as the public award for Best Campaign for using the Selligent platform to put an array of citizen services online, including school registration for 40,000 students, using real-time data to ensure accurate information was available to parents and administrators at all times.  The French agency Publicis ETO was selected as Partner of the Year based on the success of many collaborative projects with mutual clients.
