Winners Announced for Connectiv Innovation Festival

Share |

Seventeen category winners will compete onstage for the first ever People’s Choice Innovation Award at the inaugural Connectiv Innovation Awards on Sept. 28 in New York City. A full listing of the winners, which includes companies such as UBM, ReedTech, e.Republic, SourceMedia and John Wiley & Sons, in categories including Revitalizing Workplace Culture, Delivering a Dynamic Customer Experience and Creating a New Revenue Stream, are listed below.

Each winner will deliver a short “Shark Tank”-style pitch on the initiatives that led to their consideration for the award, while three judges will pepper each presenter with additional questions to keep the mood lively and entertaining. The People’s Choice vote, delivered by attendees, will take place via text after the last presentation.

Winners for The Most Disruptive Innovator and Most Innovative Company have been chosen by a separate panel of judges. The awards will be hosted at LiveIntent’s Town Hall space with a menu of craft beer and artisanal snacks and a DJ keeping up the pace with great music.

The first ever Connectiv Innovation Awards received nearly 80 entries showcasing the best and most forward thinking work being done in the B2B media and information space. For more information on the awards and how to attend on Sept. 28, click here.
