BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport Recognized with Multiple Marketing and Advertising Awards
Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and its marketing partner, Weber Shandwick, have been presented with several prominent awards for the 2019 marketing campaign, “We’ll Take You There.” The campaign used a broad mix of strategies and creative asserts to drive awareness of BWI Marshall Airport and showcase its convenience, low fares and non-stop airline service.
BWI Marshall Airport and Weber Shandwick were recognized in 2020 with three notable honors for the “We’ll Take You There” campaign: an Emmy® Award from the National Capital Chesapeake Bay Chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, an international Hermes Platinum Creative Award, and an American Advertising Federation Baltimore Chapter ADDY Gold Award. The high-energy advertisements showed eager travelers moving through the airport to the sounds of the classic Stapes Singers hit, “I’ll Take You There,” re-recorded with the campaign theme. A video example is available on the BWI Marshall Airport YouTube channel.
“These awards are another example of how BWI Marshall Airport is a leader in our industry,” said Ricky Smith, Executive Director of BWI Marshall Airport. “I applaud our talented, creative team for their outstanding achievements. We are honored to be recognized with these prestigious awards.”
BWI Marshall Airport’s “We’ll Take You There” campaign ran in spring and fall 2019 across three media markets — Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia. The advertising campaign helped to solidify BWI Marshall’s position as the busiest airport in the Washington-Baltimore region.
