The Hospitality Sales & Marketing Association International (HSMAI) will recognize Pegasus Solutions with a Silver Adrian Award for trade show marketing campaign excellence, and Utell Hotels & Resorts with a Bronze Adrian Award for e-mail series excellence for winning entries in the 54th annual Adrian Awards Competition, one of the largest and most prestigious travel marketing competitions globally.

HSMAI will pay tribute to both Pegasus and Utell during the annual HSMAI Adrian Awards Gala, a black-tie affair attended by more than 1,000 hospitality, travel and tourism marketing executives tonight at the New York Marriott Marquis.

Pegasus Solutions, which was also recently honored in the InformationWeek500, CIO 100 and InfoWorld Top 100, was recognized with the Silver Adrian Award for its HITEC 2010 marketing campaign. Utell, one of the most experienced hotel representation services in the world, received the Bronze Adrian Award for a 2010 global e-mail campaign conducted for its high-profile Utell Showcases marketing member hotels to travel agents in Paris, Frankfurt, London, Rome, Milan, Madrid and New York.

“Last year was a significant year for Pegasus and Utell because of the various accolades we received from the technology community,” said Mike Kistner, chief executive officer of Pegasus Solutions. “We are truly honored to add the hospitality industry’s most respected hotel marketing awards to our accomplishments. These two Adrian Awards will be given at the Awards Gala tonight along with the naming of our COO, Ric Leutwyler, to HSMAI’s list of the Top 25 Minds in Sales and Marketing.”

This year’s contest attracted nearly 1,100 entries from around the world, with entries judged by top executives from all sectors of the industry. “The quality of the entries submitted in this year’s HSMAI Adrian Awards competition was truly outstanding,” said Fran Brasseaux, HSMAI executive vice president. “This year’s winners represent the most inspiring examples of travel advertising, public relations, and digital marketing. We look forward to sharing this great work with the industry at the Adrian Awards Gala.”

In addition to celebrating Pegasus’ and Utell’s award-winning work, the Gala and reception honor lifetime achievement and the Top 25 Most Extraordinary Minds in Sales and Marketing.
