Awards & Events

Awards: We’ll bring you the recognition you deserve.

Great companies are built with great people, and if your company is a “Best Place to Work” or The Wall Street Journal’s “Next Big Thing,” we’ll make sure everyone else knows about it.

Walker Sands identifies the award opportunities that will have the biggest impact for you, whether it’s an industry award for great client work or a coveted spot on the Inc. 5000.

Awards catch the eye of investors, prospective clients and strategic partners and can be used as a tool to recruit top talent. Once we help you win, we’ll work with you to promote your big wins in a way that establishes credibility with the right audiences.

Here is just a sampling of the awards our clients have won:

  • The Wall Street Journal’s “Next Big Thing”
  • Gartner “Cool Vendor”
  • Microsoft Partner of the Year
  • Forbes’ Top 10 Startup Incubators in America
  • Inc. 500/5000
  • BtoB Magazine Top Agency

Events: Sometimes there’s no substitute for face-to-face.

The foundation of good PR is getting the right message in front of the right audience. Sometimes that means making a splash at conferences and events.

Walker Sands places you in front of the key audiences in your industry. We work with you at every stage of the game, from securing a keynote speaking slot to developing that wild idea for a contest at your booth and following up on warm leads afterward.
