Axiom Wins "Best in Show" and More at the 2010 Lantern Awards

Axiom was the year’s biggest winner at the 2010 Business Marketing Association Houston’s Lantern Awards on Nov. 16 at The Petroleum Club – receiving the Best in Show Award plus five prestigious Lantern Awards and 17 Medals of Excellence.

The Lantern Awards annually recognize top-quality creative and strategic business-to-business communications. The Best in Show accolade — given to only one project — honored Axiom’s total communication program for Gardner Denver’s PZ-2400 launch campaign.
