ABM Marketing Team Garners Third and Fourth IABC Awards in Four Years
NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--
ABM (NYSE:ABM), a leading provider of facility solutions, recently received two
Golden Flame Awards from the International Business Association of Communicators
(IABC) at the organization`s annual Golden Flame Awards Gala at the Fabulous Fox
Theatre in Atlanta. IABC`s Golden Flame program highlights excellence in
communications in a variety of categories including print media, electronic
media, graphics communications and media relations. The "Golden Flame Award"
represents the highest honor bestowed by IABC, with awards given to submissions
meeting specific point criteria. ABM has now garnered four Flames Awards in the
past four years. 

ABM received highest honors in the "Communication Management - Special Events"
category for a client appreciation and marketing event as part of ABM`s public
rebranding launch in 2012 at the Building and Office Management Association
(BOMA) annual conference. The theme for the event - "It`s A New Day at ABM" -
was based on the ABM brand launch and was the first public event to communicate
ABM`s first rebranding initiative in its 104-year history. 

ABM also received a Golden Flame in "Communication Management - Brand
Communication" for ABM`s newly branded exhibition booth. Boasting a new steel
structure leveraging sustainable features and the latest in digital technology,
