The US Search Awards were a major hit at last year’s Pubcon and winners have realized significant business benefits through their wins –

“Winning the 2013 US Search Personality Of The Year award in Las Vegas opened a number of professional doors for aimClear. It was also incredibly humbling and gratifying personally to be held in high regard by such an esteemed panel of judges in this unique competition. Therefore it is with full heart that I recommend entering the 2014 US Search Awards. There’s a lot to gain for you and your company.” Marty Weintraub, Founder & Evangelist, aimCear

Catalyst Canada scooped four awards for their work in the States at last year’s ceremony including Best PPC campaign and Innovation awards for their work with HSBC USA.

Ira Kates, Account Supervisor, Catalyst Canada said “We at Catalyst are really proud of everything our team has been able to accomplish. We’ve always maintained a strong focus on finding innovative ways to help our clients meet their goals and it’s an honour to be recognized internationally for the work done. The awards mark very important third-party recognition of campaigns, software and those working within our search industry. Our wins allow us to remain focused on using innovation as a tool to drive competitive advantage for our clients, and the work done on the HSBC account is a great example of this.”

Lane R. Ellis, lead editor at Pubcon added “We’re honored to once again host the U.S. Search Awards at Pubcon. The inaugural awards were a highly-successful feature at last year’s Las Vegas conference, and we’re excited to make the second annual awards event an even more vital part of our big Pubcon Las Vegas 2014 event during the week of October 6 – 9.

“With so many industry leaders gathered to speak at and attend Pubcon Las Vegas 2014, it’s the perfect setting to honor and celebrate the best new media and digital marketing innovators at the year’s largest industry conference. We look forward to once again having the U.S. Search Awards at Pubcon Las Vegas 2014 and expect the event to be an exciting and integral part of the week for all our attendees.”

The US Search Awards followed the success of the UK Search Awards and the European Search Awards which were launched by British events agency Don’t Panic in 2011 and 2012 respectively. Both awards have become key celebrations for the search industry in those territories.
