Oh, what a night! We’re still buzzing from a memorable party featuring our awesome customers and partners at the 2017 Lithy Awards Ball on June 14th at the Nasdaq Entrepreneurial Center in San Francisco.
A few of our favorite moments? Guests sipping our celebratory Lithy cocktail, fashionistas posing at the step & repeat, seeing the silly side of our customers at the green screen photo booth, and the pre-awards ceremony jitters as nominees waiting to find out who would take home the coveted Lithy trophy.
The competition this year was fierce with a record-breaking number of 130 submissions from 72 global brands (check out all the submissions here). With such a tight race, we were especially grateful for our expert panel of judges who helped determine the winners. Thanks to Social Care Expert and Thought Leader, Dan Gingiss, SVP and Digital Lead of Avanade, Jason Hunt, and Chief Digital Officer of Nasdaq, Josh Machiz.
