The award was given by MarketingSherpa, a research firm based in Warren, RI., that specializes in tracking what works in all aspects of marketing. The annual MarketingSherpa Email Summit in Miami is billed as the largest event in the world focused exclusively on email marketing.

“In a campaign like this, execution is everything,” said Hilary Pecheone, marketing manager at MarketingSherpa after the awards ceremony held in March. “Blue Tent had the temerity to combine a simple holiday greeting postcard-style email with a holiday-themed survey of their clients’ business needs.”
