Pace presented highest industry honor by the Content Marketing Institute

Greensboro, NC (September 12, 2013)—Pace was named Content Marketing Agency of the year at the second annual Content Marketing Awards, presented by the Content Marketing Institute and held in Cleveland, Ohio. The Content Marketing Awards is the largest content-marketing industry awards program in North America, honoring excellence in brand-created content. The Agency of the Year award recognizes the best-in-class agencies, and the awards are judged on a variety of factors including overall growth, business evolution and commitment to giving back to the community.

“The competition among content marketing agencies this year was intense, and the work we are seeing was best of breed,” said Joe Pulizzi, Content Marketing Institute founder. “And the winners come from around the world … and this just shows how content marketing is growing, from North America to Europe to Asia Pacific. It’s truly astounding.”

“We are truly honored to receive this award on behalf of the work that we produce for our clients. Creating messaging that truly resonates with customers has never been more important, or challenging. We believe that creating quality content is the key to achieving success. While we see results every day in the metrics and data, it’s also rewarding to be acknowledged by industry peers,” said Craig Waller, Pace President.

In addition to receiving the award for best content agency, Pace and their client Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts were also awarded the Gold award for Best Overall Digital Magazine (external and/or internal) for the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts Digital Content Program, and the Silver award for best overall website.

A panel of leading content marketing industry influencers and experts, as well as Content Marketing Institute team members, judged the entrants. The award event is part of the four-day Content Marketing World 2013 Conference held 9/9–9/12. The conference was attended by more than 1,700 marketers and industry professionals from 35 countries.
