The Loyalty & Engagement Awards 2021 shortlist: Did you make the cut?

 

The shortlist for the ninth edition of the Loyalty & Engagement Awards 2021 has officially been revealed. The Loyalty & Engagement Awards is the only awards in the Asia Pacific region to reward the best loyalty and engagement campaigns designed to attract, retain, and appreciate an organisation’s biggest advocates – their customers and their people.

This year, there were 39 categories open for entry, including six new categories: Best COVID-19 Response in a Loyalty Campaign, Best COVID-19 Response - Engagement & CX, Best COVID-19 Response - Relationship Marketing, Best Membership Programme, and out of these six came two new individual categories to compete in, L&E Team of the Year - Agency / Brand.

Judged by an independent panel of 20 industry experts and senior marketers, these judges brought their vast experience and knowledge to the table. Jury member, Kristin Veriga, chief marketing officer of Grobest Group Holdings, commented that “the standard was really high this year as COVID forced a re-think on almost every marketing activity and it is a testament to the quality of the work that the results delivered…..both for brand equity and also financially”.  Also admiring the creativity was Maneesh Varma, vice president consumer business group, StarHub, who said “the spirit to keep things going and make a difference to the community is evident in the great work done by these brands.”

Additionally, Lucida Gloria Utamidewi, vp, head of loyalty management, Indosat Ooredoo,  commented, “I was so impressed and amazed by so many out of the box ideas. I think this pandemic era is making us all more creative, so we can survive. Kudos to all participants!”

The winners will be reviewed in September. Check the awards site for updates!
