The 2019 North America In2 SABRE Awards Shortlist

The 2019 Innovation SABRE Awards — North America Finalists

The 2019 Innovation SABRE Award - North America covered an impressive array of work — artificial intelligence, defying brand expectations, strategic challenger brands — were among the trends noticed in this year's entries.     

There were also a record number of entries to the competition this year, which also means it was an exceptionally competitive year. For many categories, narrowing down the shortlist was especially challenging. And while lots of excellent work is recognized, some very strong contenders ultimately couldn't make the shortlist. 

ICF Next (formerly Olson Engage), Ketchum, Carmichael Lynch Relate led the nominations with nearly 20 nominations each — meanwhile, M Booth and MWWPR both scored more than 10 nominations, among other firms recognized multiple times for their innovative work. And a thank you to our spectacular jury for their hard work in selecting the finalists and winners. 

The winners will be announced on the evening of Wednesday, February 13 at the JW Marriott in San Francisco. The gala follows the 6th Innovation Summit — North America that explores the future of marketing and communications. 

Tickets for the Innovation SABRE Awards — North America and the Innovation Summit are on sale now
