Marketing finalists revealed for PPS Awards 2019

The six finalists for the marketing award in this year’s Progressive Preschool Awards have been revealed, highlighting the campaigns which have made an impressive impact upon the preschool product and retail sector over the past 12 months.

The judging itself saw a carefully selected group of marketing experts coming together in a face-to-face panel discussion to arrive at the final six.

“The judges found arriving at their decision to be a challenge, as the quality of entries gets better and better each year,” said Richard Pink, marketing guru and owner of Pink Key Marketing, who has been chairing the marketing judging panel for the past five years.

He continued; “But after a long and passionate debate they reached a result that everyone was happy with – a very deserving set of finalists and ultimate winner.”

The list of finalists reflect the broad cross-category nature of the Preschool Awards, which spanning a wide selection of nursery, toy, licensing and other activity.
