Agency Honored With 38 Client Wins and a Platinum President’s Award

From an AI-generated advertising campaign to a landmark tribal tourism initiative, MMGY Global’s industry expertise was in the spotlight at travel marketing’s biggest night, thanks to 38 honors and a Platinum President’s Award from the Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI). Earned in partnership with clients such as Visit California, Apple Vacations and Visit Myrtle Beach, the accolades were presented last night at the 67th Annual HSMAI Adrian Awards celebration in New York.

Considered the highest honor in travel marketing, the Adrian Awards recognized MMGY Global and its client partners with 38 individual accolades – 13 Gold Awards, eight Silver and 17 Bronze. Among those was recognition for the agency’s own work: its groundbreaking research study examining the power of accessible travel, Portrait of Travelers with Disabilities™: Mobility and Accessibility. MMGY Global also received the inaugural Platinum President’s Award for earning the most President’s Award commendations – eight in total.

“Helping our clients drive performance and achieve success is the most important thing we do,” said MMGY Global Americas President Craig Compagnone. “Receiving recognition from our industry peers is a testament to the great opportunities that our clients collaborate with us on and a great way to acknowledge the passionate work of our 600 team members across the globe. We are honored to be entrusted to tell the stories of so many great organizations and communities.”

The 2023 Adrian Awards honorees were selected from more than 800 global entries by senior industry and media experts. A full list of MMGY Global’s Adrian Award wins follows. For more information about HSMAI or the event, visit
