DOTIE Net Visionary Award Shortlisted web designers 2016. Yes, it has been an exciting week here for WebArt news. The awards night we were all looking forward to took place Friday last, the 7th of October, in the RDS Concert Hall. Our own Lisa Stacey and Les James were of course in attendance along with 300 other company representatives from various different sectors from retail to health and technology.
WebArt were delighted to be shortlisted in the category for best website for e-commerce website Parts for Trampolines. Parts for Trampolines is owner managed by Lisa and Les also and it too was shortlisted in a separate best e-commerce category. The two awards were won on the night by The Friday Agency for www.stpatrickscathedral.ie and best e-commerce went to i-clothing but to be shortlisted among such fantastic companies was a really positive achievement.
The host for the evening was the ever amusing Paul Hayes who kept up a fast paced tirade of witty dialogue to entertain attendees. The night also featured an emotional standing ovation for Joan Mulvihill, CEO of the IIA, when she was named overall net visionary winner. This added a special touch to a wonderful evening for industry leaders. Lisa & Les were delighted to share a table with Moira from Bank of Ireland, one of the award sponsors, and the team from Transfermate who scooped the award for best innovation for financial services.
The awards are very important to the industry as they allow Irish business an opportunity to showcase what they can do, and how well it can be done. With the digital economy set for a major growth spurt in the coming years it is great to have companies to be inspired by and with whom we can turn to for guidance.
