AgencyEA, an award-winning, Chicago-based brand experience agency, was named a top 100 agency on Event Marketer magazine’s annual Agency It List. Now in its fourteenth year, the annual It List is curated by the editorial team at Event Marketer and highlights the top 100 agencies leading event marketing today.
“This is an incredible recognition, and one that we never take for granted,” says Fergus Rooney, CEO of agencyEA. “It’s imperative not to underestimate the competitive nature of the industry, and this particular recognition reaffirms agencyEA’s constant growth and positive evolution as we seek to continuously build a premier brand experience agency.”
This year marks agencyEA’s sixth time on the list, which appears in the magazine’s May issue. Event Marketer’s editorial team recognized agencyEA for its core offerings in B2B Meetings/Events, Internal Employee Events, and Sales Conferences/Meetings. EA was also recognized for its collaborative and wellness-driven culture, restructured and strengthened digital department, and work with clients such as Hilton Worldwide, Hostess, Target and Under Armour. Additional mentions included agencyEA’s new, 16,000-square-foot venue space, Savage Smyth, debuting in spring 2016.
AgencyEA received additional industry honors this month at the 2016 Event Marketer Summit in Denver, Colorado, taking home a Silver Ex Award in the “Best Use Use of Technology and Social Media” category for its work with Under Armour. The winning campaign celebrated Under Armour’s Brand House opening and engaged consumers through the “Earn Your Armour” Chicago Challenge – a custom digital obstacle course that invited participants to “sprint” down Michigan Avenue, “kayak” in the Chicago River and “climb” up the stairs of the Willis Tower, ending with a photo-finish on the sky deck.
