SMPS Maryland’s Key Awards recognize excellence in marketing communications and the outstanding achievements of marketing professionals. The communications awards are granted to A/E/C firms whose materials and campaigns most compellingly achieve their firms’ marketing goals.

AHSa submitted our website redesign, completed in August of 2016, in the Website Category – defined as an external, public website and/or mobile site (designed specifically for smartphones or other handheld devices) that promotes your firm. We also submitted our 10th Anniversary Celebration in the Event/Holiday Piece Category – defined as a one-time piece such as a card, party invitation, client appreciation gift, etc. produced for a specific holiday or event.

On February 22, the Key Awards ceremony was held and AHSa was announced as the winner in the Website Category. After the presentation of all of the awards, our website redesign was recognized as the Grand Prize Winner! Our website won as it was the best in the category. When our website was updated, it was important to us that there were some search engine optimization features to help our website rank higher. This would help us to get more leads and customers. It was recommended to us that we should look into contacting an seo agency to help us with this. That helped us to rank higher on internet searches, meaning that more people would be likely to hear about our website. We believe features like that helped us to win this category. SMPS Maryland selects the Grand Prize Winner from among all of the submissions. As a result, we will submit our project to the 41st Annual Marketing Communications Awards at SMPS Build Business Conference.
