The 2021 Annual Awards Gala – A Roaring Good Time!

The SMPS Boston chapter held its roaring 20’s themed Annual Awards Gala on June 17th, 2021! The event, which was held virtually via Zoom, celebrated the Boston A/E/C firms and professionals who represent the best in marketing communications.

The event was planned by the SMPS Boston Special Events Committee and featured speaker Julie Brown, author of This Sh!t Works: A Non-Nonsense Guide to Networking Your Way to More Friends, More Adventures, and More Success. As Master of Ceremonies, SMPS Boston President Lisa Frisbie presented the awards, while also showing off an impressive 1920’s slang vocabulary.

The past year truly pushed the boundaries of creative thinking, and the award winning firms displayed impressive innovation and resilience. Congratulations to all the award winners – you’re the bee’s knees!
