Vestal Nominated for "Men's Marketing Campaign of the Year"

Vestal Watch, Inc. is proud to announce it has been nominated for the "Men's Marketing Campaign of the Year" award by the Surf Industry Manufacturers Association. This award goes to the brand in men's apparel, footwear, wetsuit, hardgood, accessory or media category that produced the most creative marketing campaign in 2007. The award considers men's brands that display a creative, cohesive and consistent brand message in print, digital and point-of-purchase materials throughout January 1 and December 31, 2007.

This nomination follows Vestal's SIMA Image Award win last year for "Breakthrough Brand of the Year." This is Vestal's third SIMA Image Award nomination in three years.

It is the brand's continued focus on music while maintaining its roots in the boarding and fashion world that has captured the media spotlight and excitement in both the press and retail arenas.

"Vestal has focused so much attention on print, online and in-store marketing initiatives over the past year." says Vestal President Johnny Gehris. "It is a true reward to be recognized by SIMA and our industry peers for this prestigious nomination."

SIMA will be awarding the "Men's Marketing Campaign of the Year" award during their Image Awards ceremony in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, May 16, 2008.
