The Rooms Wins Two International Business Communications Awards

The Rooms has been named the recipient of two Gold Quill Awards by the International Association of Business Communicators. The Rooms captured the 2018 Gold Quill Award of Excellence in Marketing, Advertising and Brand Communication for the Remember Them at The Rooms campaign, as well as the 2018 Gold Quill Award of Excellence in the Audio/Visual category for the Sing You Home campaign launch video.

The Remember Them at The Rooms campaign and the Sing You Home video were created to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Beaumont-Hamel, and to help mark the centennial event of July 1, 1916, at The Rooms.

The Gold Quill Awards recognize business communication excellence globally, and are acknowledged as one of the most prestigious awards programs in the industry. This year’s winners were chosen from a field of nearly 700 entries, representing a cross section of public and private sector organizations. The awards will be presented at IABC’s World Conference in Montréal on June 6.
