This year's HBMA Lantern Awards Gala was a night to remember for our team. From the BrandExtract-designed theme decorating the venue to the massive turnout to the award results themselves, BrandExtract showed up in a big way this year.

The Lanterns, hosted by the Houston Business Marketing Alliance, recognize excellence in business-to-business communication in the marketing industry. Award winners were invited to the Lantern Awards Gala Exhibition & Awards Dinner on November 17th, where attendees could browse an exhibition hall featuring some of the winning work.

The theme of this year's show, "Battle of the Brands," was designed by BrandExtract designers. The original characters such as "Notorious B2B" and "Lady Analytics" had cardboard cutouts around the venue, and music festival posters featuring the event details and sponsor.

By the end of the show, BrandExtract had collected a grand total of TEN awards, including the prestigious People's Choice award voted on by the gala attendants. Here's a breakdown of the awards our team won:
