Wellington International Honored With Awards At FFEA Convention

The Florida Festivals & Events Association (FFEA) recently announced the winners of its annual SUNsational Awards during the organization’s 29th annual convention and trade show, and the Wellington International showgrounds was honored with five awards in several different categories.

Wellington International was recognized with the following awards: first place for PR/Media Campaign, second place for Billboard/Signage, second place for Facebook, second place for TikTok and third Place for Sustainability Program.

“We are extremely proud of our teams and what they’ve accomplished over the past year,” Wellington International Director of Marketing Alicia McLaughlin said. “Wellington International has an annual economic impact of more than $300 million in Palm Beach County, and with that comes great responsibility. Our teams take amplifying the voice of the equestrian industry and promoting Palm Beach County to visitors very seriously. We couldn’t be more delighted to be recognized for these efforts.”

Nominations were judged by a blue-ribbon panel representing media outlets, printing companies, web site designers, photographers, promotional marketing professionals and social media experts. The SUNsational Awards recognize members’ innovation, individuality and creative collaboration across 10 categories.

“The SUNsational Awards have recognized and celebrated the talents of our members for more than two decades,” said Suzanne Neve, CEO of the FFEA. “We’re proud of our members and their events — and excited to recognize them in this way each year. This year, in particular, was incredibly rewarding, as we showcased the innovation and resilience of festival and event organizers throughout the state during this unprecedented time.”
