Marquette Marketing Takes Home Four Awards At NACMA
June 23, 2009
The National Association of Collegiate Marketing Administrators (NACMA) honored Marquette University for its efforts in marketing, promotions, and sales by presenting it with four awards. The awards were handed out at NACMA’s Annual Convention in Orlando this past weekend.
Marquette’s SelloutUCONN.com, viral marketing campaign that sold over 1,000 tickets in a five-day period, was one of three gold honors that were brought home. MU also struck gold within the poster design category with the Marquette Madness poster, designed by graphic designer Tim Raasch, and in the sponsorship program category with the ever popular JobNoggin BigNoggins.
Marquette was also awarded a silver honor for its men’s basketball ticket sales e-brouchure.
Since the inception of the NACMA awards in 2003, Marquette has been recognized 14 times by the association, which is tied for fourth in their awards division, ranking only behind California (17), BYU (16) and Notre Dame (15). They are currently tied with Florida State.
Marquette and Notre Dame led the BIG EAST by bringing home four awards to their respective schools. Other BIG EAST institutions that were recognized with awards this weekend included DePaul and Cincinnati.
The NACMA Awards are presented in 13 categories, with each category divided into three groups based upon school size and conference affiliations. A total of 700 entries were received for the 2008-09 year.
