By Daniela De Marco, Marketing Manager, EFC

“There is nothing better than celebrating talent and outstanding performance in marketing from our industry professionals,” I wholeheartedly share the words expressed by EFC’s team Carol McGlogan, President and CEO.

The EFC Marketing Awards is a chance to showcase your marketing programs and demonstrate how your organization is powering a changing world in the Canadian electrical and automation industries. Your teams’ creativity, innovative ideas, and tenacity to execute excellence are key skills to be exemplified and applauded. The 9th Annual Marketing Awards Program recipients for 2021/2022 will be announced at this year’s Future Forum in the Fall, and I’m excited to see who will take the lead this time around. The Marketing Awards program is designed to recognize EFC member organizations in the following four categories:

  • Event Trade Show (sponsored by EFC)
  • Digital Innovation (sponsored by Electrical Line)
  • Integrated Marketing (sponsored by Kerrwil)
  • Social & Sustainability Award (sponsored by Product Care)

At the EFC Marketing Network meeting on June 29, new chair, Clemence Marseille, Stanpro, and new vice chair Stephanie Santini, Leviton Canada, and myself, Daniela De Marco, EFC, announced the Marketing Awards program deadline extension to August 1, 2022.

All small, midsize to large member organizations are encouraged to participate in this program to showcase and strengthen our community of excellence to strive for safer, cleaner, and more innovative electrical products and solutions. All the while, we know that winners thrive on continuous improvement and conquering the next challenge.

A panel of experts will judge submissions within each category. EFC staff and members will not participate as judges and do not have access to the submissions.
