1105 Media's Live From Campaign Wins Folio: Marketing Award for Use of Social Media

Dallas, TX, December 7, 2016 -- 1105 Media's Live From program has been named a 2016 Top 20 Marketing Campaign Winner in the Folio: Marketing Awards competition. Live From won in the Use of Social Media category. The Folio: Marketing Awards recognize the year's best in pioneering, inventive, and ultimately successful projects undertaken by the media industry's most innovative marketing professionals.

Conceived by 1105 Media's Infrastructure Solutions Group, Live From was created to establish group brands Occupational Health & Safety and Security Today as social media leaders and solidify their positions as thought leaders in their industries. The program provides an interactive way for both trade show attendees and non-attendees to experience the highlights of top industry events.

"Being named a winner of this award is truly an honor," said Susan May, group marketing director for 1105 Media's Infrastructure Solutions Group. "Our team is continuously looking for new ways to engage our audience, and Live From has proven to be a fun, timely way to generate excitement about industry events. In addition, both our editors' and our brands' Twitter and Facebook followings have seen large increases over the past year."

Matt Holden, group social media editor for the Infrastructure Solutions Group, coordinated on-site coverage for the Live From events. "It was great to be on hand to shoot and immediately post live video from sponsors' booths, to cover networking events, and to draw attention to must-see products and services," he said. "After the show, sponsors and viewers kept the excitement alive by continuing to post."

"Live From is seen as very new and cutting edge to our audience while at the same time being just the type of program that a social media leader such as our brands would launch," added Kevin O'Grady, president & group publisher of 1105 Media's Infrastructure Solutions Group. "We just launched Live From with our HME Business brand last month. As the program grows, we plan to expand it to include even more ways for companies to be involved."
