Acceleris Hails Hat-Trick of International Awards


 Acceleris, the multi-award winning communications agency is celebrating its third European PR Excellence Award in just four years. Acceleris defended its title as Europe’s best communicator in the Issues and Reputation Management category at an awards ceremony held in Berlin last night.
Acceleris has now won the award for different campaigns for three clients within diverse sectors including maritime, and health and wellbeing. Alongside its triumph in Berlin where it beat international giants including Lidl and IBM, it also won in Munich in 2013 and again in Stockholm in 2015.   
This year, Acceleris was credited for its integrated campaign to launch Purple, the innovative disability employment agency which aims to help more than 20,000 disabled people find work and enables thousands of businesses to become Disability Confident.
Acceleris formally launched Purple with the opening of the London Stock Exchange in July with support from autistic actor and Holby city star Jules Robertson. Its ongoing work for the not-for-profit consultancy includes creating marketing collateral, website design, media relations, managing business events and generating direct new business opportunities.
Louise Vaughan, Acceleris’ Managing Director said: “To win three European Excellence Awards in such a short space of time shows we have the ability to produce some of the best campaigns in the continent.
“What began in 2013 as a celebration of our award-winning maritime communications now encompasses work we produce across the team within diverse sectors.
“We’ve developed a range of expertise over the last decade and it’s an incredible achievement and a rewarding experience to consistently bring home a trophy from the European industry’s most highly regarded awards.”
The awards, in their tenth year, celebrate the best in European-wide PR and communications campaigns. Acceleris’ success in Berlin caps a record year as it claimed three Chartered Institute of Public Relations PRide awards last month and was also crowned ‘Large Agency of the Year’ in the UK Public Sector Communications Awards.
Acceleris is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2016 and has now won a total of 50 UK and International awards through its work for clients in the public, private and third sectors across the UK and increasingly in Europe.
