Aqua Flagler Awards 2018
Work created by Aqua earns three VISIT FLORIDA Flagler Awards for Excellence in Tourism Marketing

Aqua’s creative work has once again been recognized by the VISIT FLORIDA Flagler Awards for displaying excellence in tourism marketing in the state of Florida, earning three recognitions for two long-term destination clients.

Presented on September 12, 2018 at the Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Orlando, the VISIT FLORIDA Flagler Awards are the state’s annual, statewide awards honoring the effort of those who assist in maintaining and improving Florida’s position as the No. 1 travel destination in the world. They are selected and presented by VISIT FLORIDA, the state’s not-for-profit tourism marketing agency, and are named after Henry Flagler, who was a key figure in development of the Atlantic coast of Florida, founder of the Florida East Coast Railway and an original pioneer of Florida tourism.

The Emerald Coast Convention & Visitors Bureau’s submission, “A Destination You Can Count On” campaign – sales collateral targeting the Leisure Travelers segment created by Aqua – was recognized as best in the state, not only earning a silver Flagler Award in the category of Television Advertising, but another in the category of Print Advertising.

In addition, the Bradenton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau submission, “Sun, Sand and Holiday Fun” holiday travel TV special was recognized as best in the state, earning a bronze Flagler Award in the category of Resource/Promotional Material- Consumer.

Winning submissions were selected by an esteemed panel of judges chosen from experts in the fields of tourism, travel, hospitality and media. Entries were rigorously judged against specific objectives and for their ability to obtain demonstrated results.

“It’s an honor winning three Flagler awards and to have our work recognized among the best in state,” said Dave Di Maggio, President of Aqua Marketing & Communications. “It reaffirms that our agency and staff continue to produce materials and promotions that set the bar in our industry, and substantiates the efforts we put forth on behalf of our clients.”

The recent recognition is only the latest in a string of consistent wins for the agency. Recognized through a variety of awards recognizing the best in marketing communication, Aqua has also garnered nationwide acclaim in the destination marketing/tourism industry through the American Advertising Awards (formerly the ADDYs) and international acclaim from Hospitality Sales & Marketing International (HSMAI) for having devised some of the world’s best marketing communication in the tourism, travel and hospitality industries.
