Pace, a full-service advertising, marketing and branding agency based in New York City, won SAM awards in a variety of categories for clients, as well as for the agency itself, recognizing the firm’s work across a broad spectrum of marketing initiatives. Awards included: Best Color Ad (One-half Page and Under, Sharbell Development – Springside at Robbinsville); Best Billboard Print or Electronic (Sharbell Development – Union Lofts at Town Center); Best Overall Use of Social Media (Associate Member – Pace); Best Marketing Strategy (Associate Member – Pace); and one of the evening’s top honors, the Grand Award for Associate Member Marketing Program. Additionally, as the ad agency for K. Hovnanian® Homes, Pace shared in another of the evening’s top wins: Community of the Year (Attached, Over $350,000 – Montgomery Ridge).
