Paul Mulqueen, head of SMB at eir Business and chair of the eir Spiders judging panel, highlights the companies who made the eir Spiders awards shortlist and looks ahead to the awards themselves on 30th November in the Mansion House, Dublin.
We’re delighted to reveal the shortlist for the 2017 eir Spiders awards. The shortlist features the crème de la crème of digital marketing innovation in Ireland, and we’re confident it reflects the talent and creativity in Irish companies today.
There are 14 categories in this year’s award. Three new categories – best use of video, best in social media optimisation and best mcommerce campaign – highlight growing trends in digital marketing, particularly the emphasis on video and mobile. The list is a great mix of some familiar names, as well as some exciting new companies, bloggers and websites.
