'It is very encouraging to see the interest in marketing now and the general rise in the standard of marketing across the region. Businesses have already made a lot of tough decisions over the last couple of years, reducing their cost base to make their outfits leaner. Now it's time for every organisation to look outward, to our customers and competitors and to focus on the marketing strategies and tactics we can employ to compete more effectively and to secure our futures in the marketplace,' said Chair of the Marketing Institute, Paula Ronan from Angel Marketing in New Ross.
The SEMarketing Awards are sponsored by DoneDeal.ie, Sam McCauley's, Waterford Stanley, Caulfields Supervalu and Foras na Gaeilge.
