TAMPA, Fla. – July 26, 2018 – Spectrio, one of the nation’s leading providers of in-store marketing solutions powered by content and technology, today announced that it has received the Marketing & Creative Excellence (MARCE) award for Most Entertaining On-Hold Production at the 2018 Experience Marketing Association (EMA) Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The MARCE Awards is the only competition that encourages and rewards creative and marketing excellence in On-Hold Messaging productions exclusively, and winners are chosen by a panel of three professionals from the audio, creative, and/or marketing fields.

The winning submission was created by the Spectrio production team for Jenkins Insurance Agency, titled “Your Brain On Hold.”
