Marketing 24/7 Contends for
2013 Small Business of the Year Award
by Birmingham Business Alliance
BIRMINGHAM, September 25, 2013 – Marketing 24/7, a full-service marketing firm that provides marketing and business development strategies, award-entry consulting, public relations and communications planning and execution, is a contender for the 2013 Small Business of the Year Award by the Birmingham Business Alliance (BBA) in the Small Business of the Year 1-50 Employees category.
The Small Business Awards celebrates the creativity and energy of entrepreneurs and small business advocates and is hosted each year by the BBA’s Small Business Council. The Council supports the growth ad development of small business in the Birmingham region. According to BBA’s Victor M. Brown, Vice President, Minority Business and Small Business Development, “There are less than 100 contenders for a BBA Small Business Award which means that out of thousands of individuals and small businesses in the entire seven-county Birmingham area, final contenders have qualified to compete.”
“It is an honor to be nominated for this award that recognizes small businesses and the contributions they make to business outcomes in our region. I am especially proud to be nominated among the other contenders who are making great strides in the business community,” Healy says.
On October 1, 2013 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the Birmingham Business Alliance will hold its annual Small Business Awards Celebration at the Birmingham Sheraton Hotel to present finalists and winners in nine category awards and the presentation of the 2013 Small Business Executive of the Year. The Awards Celebration is one of the largest celebrations of small business in the Birmingham region with more than 500 people expected to attend.
