Last week we attended the Media Momentum awards for the top 50 fastest growing digital media companies in Europe.
The awards dinner was held at Sketch in Central London, and our Director Rupert Evans and I went along to find out where TranslateMedia came in the rankings and to enjoy the evening and meeting lots of interesting people from a range of unconventional, and conventional businesses.
The awards were voted on by a panel of judges including representatives from Google and the government’s task force on digital media and the internet among others. The top 50 ranking was presented as a countdown from 50 to number 1. We had been pleasantly surprised when we heard that we were in the top 50, and we went along not expecting much.
As the countdown got to 40 we were surprised not to be in the last ten of the 50. As things progressed and TranslateMedia still didn’t appear we became convinced that they had perhaps forgotten about us, or that we had been invited in error. But then, up we came on the screen in 10th position!
It’s very exciting to be rated as 10th fastest growing digital media company in Europe, and great to have recognition of our progress over the last 18 months. The company has grown significantly during that period, the UK and French offices taking on more people and a new office opening in Munich. Sales have continued to grow despite the recession, and we have a very positive outlook on the future with some exciting new technologies we are developing and new relationships with clients blossoming.
So the food at Sketch was good, the evening enlightening and interesting, and ultimately we were given a welcome opportunity to take a step back for a fleeting moment, and enjoy how far the company has come to this point. Long may it continue!
