Celebrating a Banner Year at Our Chicago Open House

Courtney Beasley

2019 has been a big year for Walker Sands. We surpassed 135 employees across our offices, were included on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies for the seventh consecutive year and, to top it off, launched a rebrand that reflects the B2B growth agency we’ve become.

To celebrate our banner year, we brought out the balloons and opened up the doors of our Chicago headquarters to our clients, friends and community for an Open House on October 16. Our guests joined Walker Sands employees for a night full of great food, drinks and conversation to commemorate Walker Sands’ growth and share in the excitement for the future.

At the event, attendees were able to walk around our newly expanded office and view some of our favorite client projects on our Great Work Wall, which featured integrated marketing programs for Miller Heiman Group, CompTIA, CloudCraze, G2 Crowd and more. Guests were also able to experience our rebrand in person by taking a glimpse at our branded office walls and indulging in cupcakes marked with the new Walker Sands logo. To commemorate the evening, attendees were sent home with new Walker Sands swag as a thank you for helping make all of our accomplishments possible.

Looking back on 2019 so far, it’s incredible to see the strides Walker Sands has taken in just one year. According to O’Dwyer’s, we’re now the fastest-growing B2B agency of our size, and we’re honored to have our work receive industry recognition from awards including SABRE, In2 SABRE, PRSA Totem, AVA Digital and more. None of these achievements would be possible without our incredible clients and talented employees, and I’d like to thank everyone who came out to help us celebrate.

Since our start in 2001, Walker Sands has been pushing the limits of what B2B marketing can do to accelerate the growth of our clients. As we look forward to 2020 and beyond, we’re excited to continue to build relationships with our clients and community to fuel success in our industry.
