I’m incredibly proud of the caliber of marketers and teams entering the BAMMIES this year. These finalists are in a class of their own for customer-centric marketing.”
The 10 nomination categories were revamped for 2017 to include two new awards for Best Discover-Nurture-Mobilize Strategy and Best Global Advocacy Program.
