The Landy Awards Launched By Search Engine Land
Our sister site SearchEngineLand.com launches new search marketing industry awards program to "Celebrate The Power Of Search" - profits to benefit charity.
Celebrating The Power Of Search
Earlier today, our sister site Search Engine Land unveiled “The Landy Awards” (#TheLandys) to recognize individuals, agencies and internal marketing teams within the digital marketing community who have demonstrated excellence in executing organic and paid search marketing initiatives.
All Profits To Benefit Charity
The search marketing community has donated generously over the years by attending SMX After Dark, the premier social/networking event at SMX East. More than $60,000 has been given to a host of charities including Alex’s Lemonade Stand, the Boomer Esiason Foundation, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, and National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.
Continuing the tradition of giving, The 2015 Landy Awards will be presented at the SMX After Dark evening reception and all profits generated from sponsors, event participants and entry fees will go to charity. Third Door Media guarantees a minimum donation of $5,000.
The two non-profit organizations we have chosen to support this year are: Be The Match, a global leader in bone marrow research and donor registry, and a S.T.E.M. / Computer Science non-profit organization also backed by many tech leaders, CODE. Expect to learn more about these two worthy causes in the coming months!
Sponsor The Landy Awards
There are several sponsorship opportunities available for industry leading organizations to support the awards program at Search Engine Land and during the evening awards celebration at our annual Search Marketing Expo in New York City on September 30, 2015.
By sponsoring the 2015 Landy Awards, your company will be celebrating the power of search in a meaningful way, supporting the search community at large while helping to “power up” the donations to the selected non-profit organizations.
