DMA and DIRECT Magazine Present 2007 NCDM Database Excellence Awards
Awards Presented Today at NCDM 2007 in
Las Vegas, NV, December 11, 2007 — In a format that is quite familiar to database professionals, the Direct Marketing Association (DMA) and DIRECT magazine today announced the winners — segmented by category and rank — of the 2007 NCDM Database Excellence Awards.
Subscription Partners, LLC (marketer) and Integrated Marketing Technology, Inc. (agency) took top honors, garnering the Platinum Award given to the “best of the best” entry during today’s NCDM Database Excellence Awards Luncheon and Ceremony. The luncheon, which was hosted by Greg Schwem from Comedy with a Byte, took place during the National Center for Database Marketing (NCDM) 2007 Conference, which runs through tomorrow at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.
“Subscription Partners and Integrated Marketing Technology had stiff competition this year,” said Angela Eastin, group show director, Penton Media. “In fact, we believe that all 11 honorees exemplify the ideals of the best database marketers. That’s why we chose them. Each demonstrated ingenuity and creativity in leveraging their marketing databases. The 2007 honorees have achieved dramatic, measurable results by applying statistical techniques, leveraging systems capabilities, or re-organizing to become more customer-focused, as we expect of our winners.”
