HenorStag Double Marketing Success

HenorStag.com gains double marketing recognition in first year! From the Chartered Institute of Marketing Awards to Northern Ireland Tourism Awards!


7th June 2014

In November 2013 HenorStag.com was announced overall winner of 'Best Marketing and Sales' in the category of 'Destination Tourism and Hospitality Industry' at the 'Chartered Institute of Marketing All-Ireland Marketing Excellence Awards'. Stiff competition came from some of Ireland's most successful tourism marketing campaigns including the £1.5 million Backin' Belfast campaign by Visit Belfast to encourage people back into Belfast amid Union flag protests along with other finalists Ulster Farmers Union with their 'Plate to Gate Campaign'.

While just last week HenorStag.com was commended in the category of ‘Best Use Of Digital / Social Media’ at NITB’s Northern Ireland Tourism Awards 2014 sponsored by Diageo. Commendation was certainly no mean feat with competition from Northern Ireland’s leading tourism and hospitality marketing campaigns.

HenorStag.com was in fact the only shortlisted private sector campaign and on the night the winner was ‘Culture Company 2013’ who marketed the Derry-Londonderry UK City Of Culture 2013 which hosted major events including ‘BBC Radio One Big Weekend’. Other high profile finalists included The National Trust (Festival of Light Campaign) and Ulster Bank (Belfast Festival At Queens).

The NITA judges applauded the entrepreneurial spirit and digital know-how of the HenorStag.com team and stated that HenorStag.com had created an excellent added value package to drive short break bookings. 

Commenting on the recent news Jonathan Gallagher, Co-Founder of HenorStag.com stated “HenorStag.com is now an award winning brand with merit from two of Ireland’s biggest marketing institutions. We are delighted to have won the CIM Award 2013 and Commended at the NITA’s 2014. HenorStag.com is just 1 year old and we are gaining fantastic ground with plans to move into the UK market.”

HenorStag.com is also finalist in the 2014 Mrs2be.ie Bride’s Choice Awards as ‘Best Wedding Industry Newcomer’. For further information visit www.HenorStag.com
