Fantastic Marketing Award


The aim of this award is to recognise excellence in marketing and communication in individual salons. From creating a clearly defined marketing strategy and brand, to communicating this through online (website, social media platforms) and more traditional promotional activity, to monitoring its success. It recognises the growing importance of clearly defined, targeted communications for salons.

This category is open to any ALFAPARF Milano salon that has been trading for at least 2 years on the 1st of July 2017. For salon groups, assessment will be at salon group level. As such, all submitted information should pertain to salon groups rather than individual salons. Individual salons will be judged as such.
