CHICAGO, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AgencyEA, an award-winning, Chicago-based brand experience agency, was named one of the Top 50 B2B Marketing Agencies on Chief Marketer's B2B Top Shops list. Now in its fifth year, the annual ranking is compiled by Chief Marketer's editors and is an essential resource for B2B brands and agencies seeking experienced partners in their marketing efforts. B2B Top Shops is an online searchable directory highlighting each agency's core services and contact information, offering users a behind the scenes look at each shop's culture and client work. "Industry recognition from two established publications reaffirms agencyEA's expertise and proficiency in both the B2B and B2C marketing space," said Gabrielle Martinez, managing partner at agencyEA. "We look forward to continue providing our clients with the elevated creativity, strategy and production of their event and experiential programs." This year marks agencyEA's fourth time on the list, which appears online and in print in the fall Super Book. Chief Marketer's editorial team recognized agencyEA for its core offerings in live events, experiential marketing and B2B conferences. EA was also recognized for its work with clients such as Hilton Worldwide, GSV Advisors, Huron Healthcare, GE Healthcare and Twitter. Additional call-outs included the opening of agencyEA's new creative event venue, Savage Smyth, in Chicago'sRiver North neighborhood and EA's work with Hilton Worldwide on the revolutionary launch campaign of its newest brand, Tru by Hilton. AgencyEA received additional industry honors this month at Event Marketer's 2016 Event Tech Conference in Las Vegas, taking home a Bronze Experience Design and Technology Award in the "Best Outdoor Environment" category for its work with Hostess. The winning campaign engaged passersby at SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas through the #TwinkieBull activation — a mechanical Twinkie inspired by a favorite Texas pastime, bull-riding. Festival goers were encouraged to stop by the sponsored booth and ride the #TwinkieBull, sample product, pick up Hostess-branded swag and take a photo with Twinkie the Kid.
