MONTRÉAL, Aug, 19, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - BTB Real Estate Investment Trust (TSX: BTB.UN) is pleased to announce that its 2018 annual report has won the Bronze Creative Award at the Summit International Awards (SIA)!
Created 25 years ago, the SIA honours the best web, design, video, advertising, interactive, mobile & social marketing from creative agencies worldwide. With three awards such as the Summit Creative, Marketing Effectiveness and Summit Emerging Media awards, the latter aim at rewarding creative solutions, celebrating achievements as well as recognizing new methods in the industry. This year, the SIA received over 4,500 applications, from 27 countries.
In collaboration with the firm Pixel & Cie, BTB entrusted Pier Lalonde and his team to rethink BTB's 2018 annual report. With a bold and daring design, the marketing team at BTB, coupled with Lalonde's team, were able to adopt a cutting edge annual and quarterly reports that differentiated from BTB's former standards.
When asked about the vision behind the annual report, Stéphanie Léonard, BTB's director of communications and brand imaging states:
"We wanted to shake things up. We wanted to break the mould of the industry standards, to push beyond just showing our properties. At BTB, our motto is that our clients come first, so the simple fact of putting our clients on the cover of our reports solidifies our commitment towards them. Furthermore, the fundamental basis of BTB is to pay our distributions. Therefore, putting forward the people whom, month after month, allow us to meet our objectives was an obvious choice for us".
BTB would like to thank Pier Lalonde and the team at Pixel & Cie for their outstanding collaboration throughout the entire year as well as congratulate them on this wonderful achievement.
Furthermore, BTB would also like to thank all the clients who participated in the project, namely Ms. Michelle Laflamme (Emovi inc – annual report), Mr. Marc-André Leclerc (Productions Optimales – first quarterly report) and Ms. Catherine Fortier (Collège April-Fortier – second quarterly report). Thank you for your confidence and trust in BTB.
