JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- MarketingSherpa (http://www.marketingsherpa.com) has the announced winners of its Email Awards 2014 sponsored by ExactTarget.

"The winners were both innovative yet intensely customer-focused. Their campaigns were highly creative, but that creativity produced impressive results because it was supported by solid strategy and accurate data," says Pamela Markey, Senior Director of Marketing for MECLABS, parent company of MarketingSherpa. "The entries proved that these organizations know their audience and best marketing practices, and how to leverage that knowledge to drive click-throughs and revenues."

For the first time, winners have been asked to present case studies at the 11th annual MarketingSherpa Email Summit 2014 in Las Vegas at the Aria Resort & Casino.

"We're very excited to provide winners this opportunity. After all, our goal is for marketers to hear about great ideas that their peers have proven successful," says Markey. "Instead of theory or sales pitches, we want to give attendees knowledge they can use immediately to improve their own email marketing programs."

In addition to the opportunity to speak, Best in Show winners each receive a trip for two to the conference including roundtrip tickets to Las Vegas, a two-night stay at the Aria Resort and Casino, and two tickets to the summit.

Best in Show, E-commerce

Eventful: A Google algorithm change significantly decreased Eventful's online and mobile traffic. In response, they created Recommendation Engine, an ultra-targeted email campaign that made highly relevant recommendations of events and artists to more than 8.4 million consumers. The result: Subscriber reactivations increased 300% and ticket purchases 66%.
