Lakes shortlisted for two Construction Marketing Awards

  • 24 Oct 2019

Lakes is pleased to have been shortlisted for two Construction Marketing Awards (CMAs): ‘Best use of Research and Insight’ and ‘Best use of Advertising’ working with MRA Marketing.

The CMAs are a national measure of excellence in construction marketing and business development, including research and strategy. Lakes’ work with MRA Marketing has been recognised as part of the CMAs.

In 2018 Lakes commissioned MRA Research, the research division of MRA Marketing, to track awareness, perceptions and insights into the shower enclosure market. The research also looked into trends and changing consumer lifestyles.

The results of the research helped define Lakes’ new marketing and business strategy, with clear recommendations and a firm focus on changing the showering landscape and influencing how builders’ merchants and retail stockists sell showering spaces.

The start point was new branding to signal Lakes’ new strategic direction – changing from Lakes Bathrooms to Lakes Showering Spaces. As a result, this better defines what Lakes supplies and emphasises the space that enables the showering experience.

A strategic marketing programme that includes PR, advertising, social and digital focuses on changing the direction of the market by making shower enclosures the showroom hero; changing the debate and bathroom landscape; and positioning Lakes as the expert brand and authoritative voice of the market.

Mike Tattam, Sales and Marketing Director at Lakes, comments on the news: “The CMAs showcase the best in construction marketing so to be shortlisted for two awards is fantastic news. We knew working with MRA Research would lead to reliable insights to inform our strategy. Being among the shortlist is recognition of the results achieved and the positive impact the research and MRA’s work is having on our company direction. We’re looking forward to the gala dinner and hopefully we’ll be fortunate enough to win!”

Winners will be announced at a gala dinner on the 28th November.
