B2B According to Me: The Winners

Attendees who blogged about the MarketingProfs B2B Forum (and let us know about it) had the opportunity to win a pass to our Digital Marketing Mixer this fall in Chicago. Well, the votes are in, and here are the winners!


We looked for blog posts that talked about the 2009 B2B Forum in Boston, and awarded recognition to posts in five specific categories. (Details of the contest are here.)

Before I get into the winners, let me just say Thank You to all who contributed. All of the posts were truly great, and the staff here loved pouring through them all. But as your mother always told you, you can't win every time, right? The winners in each category are:

Most comprehensive Two winners:

Nathan Burke, Lessons from the MarketingProfs B2B Forum (Entire event)

CB Whittmore, Sandy Carter Integrates Social Media Into The Marketing Mix (Individual session)

Most creative Two winners:

Becky Pearce, Summary of MarketingProfs B2B Forum (for format)

Mack Collier, Five reasons why your business/social media conference sucks (for content)

Best written:

Steve Woodruff, MarketingProfs B2B Forum Re-cap: The Book

Best series:

Peg Mulligan's series of posts here

Mike Damphousse's series of posts here

And the winner of the free pass, drawn at random from the above category winners, is:

Becky Pearce

Congrats, Becky!

Thanks for everyone who played along! You can still register for the October event, by the way, at our Best Price Ever.

Three quick disclaimers:

  1. Category winners were chosen at the discretion of MarketingProfs. Employees of MarketingProfs (Beth Harte, this means you!), were not eligible to win.

  2. Grand prize winner was chosen at random from the list of seven category winners.

  3. Prizes are not transferable.
