Thread Marketing Group’s ongoing efforts with Toledo Jeep Fest has produced another honor – the distinguished 2021 Platinum MarCom Award by the Association of Marketing and Communication Professionals (AMCP). Thread Marketing also won the 2019 Silver Anvil Award for its work on Toledo Jeep Fest.
Thread Marketing is in the process of producing its fifth Toledo Jeep Fest in 2022 and is delighted to have received this award in honor of the annual community event that celebrates Toledo as the HOME of the Jeep. Thread Marketing produced the inaugural Toledo Jeep Fest in 2016.
