ConnectIreland are celebrating this week after they won the coveted Foreign Direct Investment and Economic Development category at the prestigious World Media Awards in London on Wednesday.
The World Media Awards were awarded to demonstrate the effectiveness of cross platform, cross border, content-driven advertising. Organised by the World Media Group, with an independent Jury, the Awards celebrate bold and creative strategies for engaging with international, influential audiences.
The category that ConnectIreland won is awarded to recognise effective best practice in targeting the difficult to reach investor and business audience, to promote investment and trade for your city, region or nation anywhere around the world.
ConnectIreland CEO, Joanna Murphy commented, "The judges were very taken by the results we have achieved together on such a small budget. They commended the ingenuity and the drive of Irish people right across the globe who forged connections abroad and asked the question – have you considered Ireland as a hub for international expansion."
She added, "Being selected as an award winner along with massive, global brands augurs well for everyone who works with ConnectIreland on behalf of Ireland and gives our initiative exposure amid a captive, influential audience of our global peers."
