2013 American Business Awards Names Vantage Communications as Finalist for Outstanding Work in Interactive and Second Screen TV

Chosen From More Than 3,200 Applicants, Independent Judges Agreed That Vantage's Campaign Is Worthy of National Recognition

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 10, 2013) - Vantage Communications, a global technology PR firm, was named a finalist today in The 2013 American Business Awards, the nation's premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S. are eligible to submit nominations -- public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small. This means that independent judges agreed that Vantage's campaign is worthy of national recognition, and will be awarded a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award. 

Vantage was recognized for its compelling PR campaign, which significantly raised the profile of a small startup in the interactive and second screen TV space, Flingo. Vantage's campaign helped Flingo gain awareness from the industry's high-profile Hollywood studios, advertising agencies, media companies, TV networks, cable companies, and TV manufacturers. Given the sheer amount of competitors in the space with the same goal, Vantage overcame a significant challenge for Flingo.

"We take a sales approach to our public relations campaigns, and know what it takes to drive financial growth for any company in any type of market, especially when it's crowded with competitors," said Ilene Adler, founder and CEO of Vantage. "And having been recently named a 'Top 10 Agency for Startups' by The Agency Post, this recognition highlights Vantage's ability to actively help budding companies grow their business."

Finalists were chosen by more than 140 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of nine specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 13 - 24. 

The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA's traditional banquet on Monday, June 17 -- in Chicago for the first time, after 10 years in New York; and the new product & technology awards event on Monday, September 16 in San Francisco.
