Kathy Mattson Zoeller was one of the first 50@50+ Illinois Award recipients. She received the award in the business leaders, owners and entrepreneurs category for boosting Illinois’ economic growth while simultaneously giving back to the community. The 50 recipients were recognized in the November 6th issue of Crain’s Chicago Business.
In 2016, Mattson Communications received its third Silver Trumpet Award from the Publicity Club of Chicago for distinguished individual achievement in planning, creating and executing a public relations and communications program. Mattson Communications was the only company awarded a Silver Trumpet in 2016 in the International Public Relations category. The Publicity Club of Chicago’s annual awards program recognizes PR campaigns that raise the bar for the PR industry and that generate a substantial return on PR investments. Winning a Silver Trumpet is considered the pinnacle of recognition in the Chicago PR community.
Mattson Communications received the Silver Trumpet Award for our transatlantic trade partnership media program for the U.S. launch of the world renowned manufacturing event, HANNOVER MESSE, and its partnership with the United States. The overall success of our PR launch achieved more than news coverage and social media recognition. President Obama was the first sitting U.S. President to attend and to address the event with German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Also, HANNOVER MESSE garnered the largest ever U.S. delegation in 2016. More than 300 businesses, economic development organizations and research institutes attended.
