Pelham Bell Pottinger Asia wins top award at 2012 Asia Pacific SABRE Awards

Singapore: Pelham Bell Pottinger Asia has been awarded the Platinum SABRE Award 2012 for the Best Public Relations campaign in Asia Pacific. The agency was chosen ahead of four other finalists for its work with Golden Agri-Resources. This is the second major award won by the agency this year, following a win at the Gold Standard Public Affairs Asia Awards. The campaign, “From Conflict to Collaboration”, enhanced the global reputation of the world’s second largest palm oil plantation company, and achieved measurable business results, through a comprehensive multi-stakeholder engagement programme.

“From Conflict to Collaboration” also won Gold awards in three SABRE categories: Best Campaign in Corporate Social Responsibility Practice, Best Campaign in the Industrial and Manufacturing Sector, and Best Campaign with Global Reach. The awards are the latest industry accolades for Pelham Bell Pottinger Asia. In January, the agency was named “PR Consultancy of the Year” by Public Affairs Asia at the 2011 Gold Standard Awards.
