You’ve got to be in it to win it
#TeamNetbiz is delighted to announce that we’ve made it to the final of the Digital Entrepreneur Awards 2017 for the ‘Most Innovative Use of Digital Technology’! The project submitted was for our interactive Steelite Factory Tour and we managed to beat off competition from hundreds of businesses that entered, across 16 award categories.
As the longest standing national tech awards, the DEA’s celebrate and showcase the very best in today’s digital marketing landscape. Categories include Web Development project of the Year, Social Media Campaign of the Year, Most Innovative use of Video or Animation and the coveted Digital Entrepreneur of the Year award.
Previous DEA winners span a range of sectors, from large household names such as Sainsbury’s and Mothercare to smaller, hidden gems such as digital specialists like Social Chain and Clicky Media.
Lawrence Jones, the CEO of the DEA’s sponsor UKFast, said: “It’s extraordinary to see the development of digital across every sector. From creative agencies to law firms and the public sector, everyone needs to evolve their offering to stay ahead of the competition. That’s reflected in the sheer number and diversity of entries we’ve received this year.
“The DEAs are an incredible opportunity to celebrate the best in digital talent from up and down the UK. It’s an amazing honour to return as the lead sponsor this year as the awards evolve to encourage involvement from every region in the country.
“This year’s finalists have all shown a clear appreciation of challenges faced in business and how to solve them using digital innovation, meeting the everyday needs of their customers by evolving new solutions and approaches. That’s what the DEAs are all about.”
Here at Netbiz we are over the moon with the news and we are pleased that we have been nominated for a project that we have collaborated on with Steelite International. Since starting our working relationship, they’ve allowed us to express our creativity and it’s nice to see a project of this nature to be recognised in such a way.
