DC Inno announced its 2017 list of 50 on Fire. The list, states DC Inno, “honors the hottest companies, organizations and people from across a number of categories, each one operating within or around the city’s innovation economy.” Those recognized in the Marketing & Advertising category are SpeakerBox Communications, Allen Gannett of TrackMaven, Gabriel Marketing Group and Erik Requidan of Intermarkets.
SpeakerBox Communications celebrated its 20th anniversary in October – see photo above – with a 90’s theme party. According to the agency, since 1997, “SpeakerBox has given a voice to many B2B and B2G technology companies and has been dedicated to helping the tech ecosystem thrive in the DC region.”
