  • 25 Oct 2018

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) and its consumer website have been shortlisted as finalists in three categories for the annual Construction Marketing Awards.

The event,  which is set to take place in November at Hilton Bankside, London, showcases creativity, innovation and effectiveness in marketing across the construction industry.

The GGF’s 40th Anniversary Campaign in 2017 has been nominated in the “Best use of Research and Insight” Category, while (in conjunction with Refresh PR) has been nominated for the “Best Use of Press and PR” and the “Best Mid-Budget Campaign”.

The GGF’s 40th Anniversary campaign entailed extensive research that trawled the GGF’s archives with some of the reference books going back over 200 years of trade bodies in the glass industry. From the research, the GGF produced a timeline starting from 1328 and London’s Guild of Glaziers (the industry’s first know trade body) right through to 2017 and the GGF’s position in the industry as the leading trade organisation for the last 40 years.

James Lee, Director of GGF Group Marketing and Communications, continues: “The in-depth research was an important element for the full-blown campaign because we created an easy to follow roadmap of our industry and it showed why the GGF has become the main trade body for the industry.”

Refresh PR was appointed the GGF’s consumer PR agency in 2015 and has since helped grow the awareness and interest in (the GGF’s consumer website).

Laura Mashiter, managing director of Refresh PR, comments on the achievement: “We’re thrilled it has been shortlisted in two categories alongside many high calibre entries. In Window with a View’s third year, we’re delighted that it continues to deliver great results for – we’re excited to make the competition even bigger and better next year!”
