Slingshot Sponsorship Nominated for the Corporate Engagement Awards 2012 25th July, 2012

Slingshot Sponsorship has been shortlisted for the second year running at the Corporate Engagement Awards.

Slingshot Sponsorship has been shortlisted for three categories at the Corporate Engagement Awards for their innovative approach with consumer publication What Car? Magazine. Categories shortlisted include Best Collaborative Approach, Best Execution of Corporate Sponsorship Activity and Best Relationship Building Sponsorship Programme.

Andrew Golby, publishing director at What Car? commented:

It is a huge achievement to be creating award winning partnerships at What Car?  We have seen first-hand how partnerships can truly achieve more together and it is great how our collaborative approach with Slingshot has helped to create this.

At last year’s awards Slingshot Sponsorship collected two Gold Awards and two Silver Awards for their corporate partnership programme with The Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and credit and business information specialist Equifax.

The Corporate Engagement Awards is the only European benchmark of best practice in all aspects of the corporate partnership & sponsorship process, and three nominations in such competitive categories is a fantastic acknowledgement of Slingshot’s hard work as they enter their third successful year.

Slingshot Sponsorship delivers and develops long-term brand strategies that engage targeted audiences through sponsorship rights.  Integrated and tailored in each approach, Slingshot diversifies across a range of industries with clients based in publishing, events, trade associations, charities, motorsport and music.

Jackie Fast, managing director of Slingshot Sponsorship and also a judge at the Corporate Engagement Awards, is thrilled to be shortlisted:

It is such an achievement to not only be nominated for a second year but to also be nominated within three categories alongside some very high profile campaigns. Slingshot Sponsorship has gone from strength to strength and I am thrilled that our hard work and unique approach is being recognised. I am also delighted to be appointed as a judge for the 2012 awards and I am looking forward to helping identify the best partnerships within the industry.

The winners of the Corporate Engagement Awards will be announced at the awards ceremony in London on September 18th 2012.
