Border Technology Showcase

This special event successfully highlighted the local border security industry. The half-day showcase attracted 100 targeted attendees, generated 30 media stories, and got across a message that Southern Arizona is home to a growing industry, bolstered by the University of Arizona's research strength in border technology.

Tucson and Park Place Malls

2012 Holiday Media Campaign

The campaign received a near-perfect score, with a special mention from the judges about the multiple ways results were measured. Strongpoint's comprehensive campaign included unique traditional and social media pitches. Staff sacrificed days off around the holidays, and it paid off with a 25 percent year-over-year increase in coverage. Both malls experienced their best year in almost a decade.

External Communications Campaign

TSO Rocks the Fox

The judges raved about the campaign's research, execution on a limited budget, and results. Thanks to effective planning and partnership, this series of rock-oriented performances engaged the target audience, met revenue goals, and paved the path to a $50,000 grant for new audience development.
