This year’s Trailblazer Awards marks our 11th year honoring and celebrating the best in our industry—the people, the companies, the campaigns—and a special Lifetime Achievement Award that went to Brenda Snow, Founder and CEO of Snow Companies, who received a standing ovation as our community of award winners toasted her hard-earned, well-deserved success. It marks the beginning of our second decade in which we recognize and honor our industry’s outstanding innovators—and it was a rollicking start to decade two.
This new decade of Trailblazers kicked things off at Gotham Hall with the introduction of the brand-new Imagination Award. Jamie Castle, President, Obagi took home the award by showing the industry how a powerful imagination can change a company. Meanwhile, Emmy-award winning actress, writer, and comedian Judy Gold put her imaginative wit on display throughout the night, keeping attendees laughing in-between the announcements of the winners.
And after the 51 crystal trophies were handed out, all attendees were welcomed to dance until the clock struck midnight. As always, we would like to thank all of the awards sponsors for making such a memorable night possible: Greater Than One, Health Monitor Network, Calcium, Snow Companies, Dudnyk, Intouch Solutions, Concentric Health Experience, and MicroMass Communications.
Below find a gallery of the Trailblazer Award activities. First up, pictures from our Brand Champion Roundtable Dinner. In addition to the annual Trailblazer Awards Gala, PM360 also invites all of its 18 Brand Champions to attend a couple of special events held the day before. First, the Brand Champions attended a roundtable discussion and then later that night they shared a private meal at The Capital Grille Chrysler Center. Both events, sponsored by Health Monitor Network, gave the attendees a chance to share their unique industry insights and learn from the other winners. Of course, a private meal at a top NYC restaurant also offered the winners a chance to enjoy some truly delectable, mouth-watering hors d’oeuvres, entrees, and cocktails.
Next, you can find the highlight video and pictures from our Trailblazer Awards Gala, including the cocktail hour, award presentation, and the after party.
Finally, is the night’s best dressed. Our Trailblazer attendees always dial up the glamour, and this year was no different.
Feel free to download and share any of the photos.
