venue-awards-style-photo-kelly2Industry accolades are a great incentive for companies to strive to be better today than they were yesterday.  At iMiller Public Relations (iMPR) we encourage industry leaders to flex their muscles and look back on their accomplishments. One way to do so is through industry award submissions.

“Industry award submissions are a great way to look back on your organization’s success while gauging perception and feedback from the greater market concerning your company’s achievements,” comments Ilissa Miller, Founder and CEO of iMiller Public Relations. “That’s what makes the Capacity Global Carrier Awards 2016, presented by Capacity Media a prestigious acknowledgment, especially as a short-listed company.“
