MILWAUKEE—(June 7, 2013)—Nelson Schmidt Inc. has won a Best of Category award and an Award of Excellence in the 2013 BMA B2 Awards competition sponsored by the Business Marketing Association (BMA). The awards program, which took place May 30 at the BMA BLAZE Conference in Chicago, recognizes the top marketing communications programs of the year.

Nelson Schmidt was one of only nine super group category winners in the competition. The agency was recognized as Best of Category winner in the integrated marketing communications category for the launch of Polaris® GEM® into commercial markets nationwide. The rebranding campaign for the premium compact electric vehicle line included print and digital advertising, public relations, trade show support and dealer engagement.

Nelson Schmidt also received an Award of Excellence for its “In Wisconsin” integrated brand campaign. The marketing initiative for the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) brands the state’s business climate and promotes the benefits of starting, expanding or locating a business in Wisconsin.

“We continue to challenge ourselves to collaborate with clients to develop pioneering marketing solutions,” said Dan Nelson Jr., president and CEO of Nelson Schmidt. “Our staff strives to create new ways to provide these solutions for both domestic and international clients, and it is because of this constant innovation that we are able to compete at a level like the international B2 Awards.”

Nelson Schmidt was recently recognized locally at the 2013 BMA Milwaukee Bell Awards, regionally at the BMA-NYC Global ACE Awards and was nationally named the 2013 Top Agency of the Year by BtoB Magazine.
