Gwinnett Chamber's app wins award

Gwinnett’s Chamber of Commerce marketing team received accolades at a recent awards celebration.

The staff took home the highly acclaimed 2013 Public Relations Society of America’s Phoenix Award for their mobile app project at the Georgia chapter’s awards event Nov. 7.

“I am proud of the mobile marketing initiatives the Chamber has undertaken this year and the resulting success,” said Traci Strom, Gwinnett Chamber’s vice president of marketing and communications. “We place a significant priority on driving real business results for our members and the community in all aspects of marketing communications and public relations. It’s just one of the many strengths of our Chamber and we are honored to receive recognition for our efforts from these esteemed public relations peers.”

The app, which includes a searchable member directory, notifications of deals and events, links to business websites and more, took the top prize in the Smartphone/Tablet Applications awards category.

“The Gwinnett Chamber mobile app is also a powerful marketing tool for promoting member companies, B2B networking, and driving commerce to local businesses in and around Gwinnett County,” Strom said. “It allows members to easily implement a mobile marketing strategy while positioning their business as being on the forefront of technology.”

The award-winning app is free to download on Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.
