[Chicago, IL] – May 10, 2012 – AgencyEA was named a finalist today in the Best New Product Introduction Event category in The 2012 American Business Awards, and will ultimately be a Gold, Silver, or Bronze Stevie Award winner in the program.

The American Business Awards are the nation’s premier business awards program. All organizations operating in the U.S.A. are eligible to submit nominations – public and private, for-profit and non-profit, large and small.

For the first time, The American Business Awards will be presented at two awards events: the ABA’s traditional banquet on Monday, June 18 in New York, and a new tech awards event on Monday, September 17 in San Francisco.

More than 3,000 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Most Innovative Company of the Year, Management Team of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, Corporate Social Responsibility Program of the Year, and Executive of the Year, among others. AgencyEA is nominated in the Best New Product Introduction Event category for the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental Premiere.

Boeing partnered with agencyEA in 2011 to create a rousing revelation of the newest commercial aircraft for more than 10,000 employees, stakeholders, industry leaders and key customers.

“We are honored to receive this recognition from such a notable organization,” said Fergus Rooney, CEO of agencyEA. “This project was unique and challenging, but ultimately yielded great success for our client.”

Finalists were chosen by more than 140 business professionals nationwide during preliminary judging in April and May. More than 150 members of 10 specialized judging committees will determine Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging, to take place May 14 – 25.
