MMGY Global Receives 38 HSMAI Adrian Awards


We are proud to share that our agency has won 38 HSMAI Adrian Awards during this year’s competition. More than 1,100 entries were submitted this year, and our work was judged to be exceptional by experts in hospitality, travel, tourism and media. Judges were asked to evaluate each entry based on its own merit and success in achieving its objectives.

Across MMGY Global, MMGY, MMGY NJF and MMGY Myriad we submitted 56 pieces of work. Of those entries, 38 received an Adrian Award. Of the 38 winners, 17 were Gold, 15 were Silver and 6 were Bronze.

“We are extremely honored and proud of the work that our team and partners have been recognized for this year by HSMAI. It is especially meaningful as the work within the travel and hospitality industry continues to be more and more competitive,” says Katie Briscoe, President of MMGY Global.

The Gold entries are now being evaluated for the Platinum category. Platinum award winners, which will be announced in the coming weeks, are considered for the show’s top prize: Best of Show. We have won this in the past for our work with: Destination Cleveland and the Barbados Tourism Authority – we look forward to see who else will be added to this recognition this year.
