2023 Visit Florida Flagler Awards

Aqua Dominates. Work Recognized as the Best in Florida.


It’s been a whirlwind year of accolades and awards at Aqua! As one of the nation’s leading destination marketing firms, we were honored to receive five coveted Flagler Awards (including two Henry Awards) for the work our team produced for Visit Lauderdale, the official destination marketing organization for Greater Fort Lauderdale. The award ceremony was held on Wednesday, September 6, 2023, during the 2023 Florida Governor’s Conference on Tourism hosted by VISIT FLORIDA at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Florida.

In our industry, these awards truly speak to the caliber of work we are dedicated to producing for our clients. Each year, leaders across Florida’s tourism industry are chosen by selection committees to recognize outstanding marketing strategies and campaigns. Working independently, a diverse panel of thirteen judges evaluated the creativity, innovation, production quality and effectiveness of over a hundred entries. Based on the judges’ cumulative scores, awards were presented to the top three entries in each category: the Bronze Award for the third highest scoring entry, the Silver Award for the second highest scoring entry, and the Henry Award for the highest scoring entry in each category.

During the Chairman’s Dinner, Aqua won two Henry Awards, two Silver Awards, and a Bronze Award for their work in the following categories:

“It’s gratifying to know our work is the best that clients could hope to achieve.” said agency President, Dave Di Maggio. “This just adds further proof that we are the top marketing communications firm in the state in the travel/tourism/hospitality field.”
