We’re very excited about the Drum Recommends nominations because they’re one of the top awards for our industry. These awards are very important for us because they’re voted for by our clients.

Crowd’s Global CEO, Jamie Sergeant, says: “We’re honoured to have been nominated for not one, but ten Drum Recommends Awards. As an agency, we strive to do amazing work, push boundaries and get results. This means we continue to have happy clients and that makes us happy.”
On top of these nominations, we have won three W3 Awards for: Campaigns - Marketing Effectiveness, Campaigns - Integrated Marketing and General Website Categories-Non-Profit. The first two awards have been won by our UAE client, Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority (RAKTDA) and the third one by our UK client, Jurassic Coast Trust.
RAK TDA was established as a government entity, with a mandate to license, regulate and monitor Ras Al Khaimah’s tourism and hospitality industry. The authority’s main purpose is to develop tourism infrastructure and promote the Emirate domestically and abroad, to both consumers and businesses.
Crowd was appointed as RAK TDA’s lead integrated agency to promote the destination, create more awareness, drive visitor bookings in the destination and to promote and sell its partnered or joint investment products and experiences.
We partnered with Jurassic Coast Trust to deliver a new website and portal for the charity that works to protect the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site. We helped create a digital platform that informs every part of the Jurassic Coast experience.
The work for RAK TDA and Jurassic Coast Trust has also won three Global Trends Marketing Awards. We won an additional award here for Dubai International Airport. For them, we created an online magazine called ' Destination DXB', which is showcasing the incredible experiences around the airport and provides travellers with both information and inspiration.
