PORTLAND, Ore., September 23, 2019 — Digital Trends, the world’s largest independent tech publisher, is proud to announce their place as a finalist for the first ever Brandweek Constellation Awards. Winners will be announced at Brandweek, which takes place November 3rd through 6th in Palm Springs, California.
Adweek is bringing back Brandweek for its second year, and this time they’re introducing the Constellation Awards. The awards honor teams of marketers for outstanding collaborative work in brand activations.
Adweek honors Digital Trends for their Amazon Prime Day activation, orchestrated by VP of Commerce Lynda Mann. It included four hours of live-streamed coverage, hand picked deals selected as favorites by the editorial staff, and Prime Day promotions across a variety of platforms. The activation generated $6 million in sales, resulting in a 400 percent boost year-on-year in product purchases. “It’s thrilling to be considered by Adweek for their first Brandweek Constellation Awards,” says Digital Trends CEO Ian Bell. “Lynda did a fantastic job with the Prime Day activation, and we all had a lot of fun in the process. She and her team deserve all the recognition they can get. We’re very hopeful for a win.”
Winning teams will be selected for 32 different categories. Adweek has shortlisted Digital Trends for the ‘Best team effort focused on DTC/commerce’ category, continuing a trend of prestigious recognitions for Digital Trends’ team. They’ve already racked up a number of awards this year for direct-to-consumer marketing, including a Digiday Content Marketing Award, one gold and two platinums at the 2019 dotCOMM Awards, and three wins at the 25th Annual Communicator Awards.
