Since 2003, the Service Industry Advertising Awards has given marketing professionals and agencies the opportunity to test program and content against the best in the country. National panels of industry specialists review each piece on: copy and design creativity, marketing execution, message impact, technology application and innovation of content. Over 1,700 entries from more than 500 advertising agencies and over 750 institutions participated in the 13th annual SIAA Awards.
SIAA is the only advertising awards to specifically recognize the achievements of the service industry. Many other advertising awards are dominated by consumer goods, packaged goods and other tangible products. The service industry is adding a significant contribution to marketing and advertising. SIAA recognizes the creativity and communication accomplishments of the service industry.
