The All Ireland Marketing Awards took place on Friday and produced a host of winners from within the Sport for Business community.

There has hardly been a time when so much change and additional pressure has been heaped on the shoulders of those who are paid to make us change behaviour and spend our money.

Against this background, Irish businesses have stepped up and made a mark that will ensure they survive and come back stronger.  It was this sense of excellence under pressure that ran through the nominees and the eventual winners of the awards on Friday.

Congratulations to all those who did so much good work over the course of this year and who were rewarded for their efforts with the recognition of their peers.

Special Congratulations to Energia, Allianz, Heineken, Virgin media, An Post, Aer Lingus, Bord Gais Energy and Laya Healthcare from within our membership that landed some of the biggest awards.
