One thought on “2nd Annual AdSphere™ Awards Recognize Top DRTV Advertisers in 2017

  1. We thought it was appropriate to have an awards presentation for our first year. We also honored the late Jake Weisbarth by giving his family the very first AdSphere Award in memoriam. This year, we will make appointments with the recipients who are attending the MTC Expo to visit our booth, take pictures on our red carpet, where we will present them with their awards. So, to your point, we are dispensing with the “award” show aspects this year and “giving” our recipients their awards throughout the expo. That said, we do have a lot of new winners this year so it’s not always the same companies winning across all industry classifications which include short form products, lead generation, brand/direct, and 28.5 minute.
